My colleagues all over the country are finding that it is not uncommon for primary pupils to talk with authority on "snogging", oral sex and sexual intercourse. In a nation where sex is prevalent in all media and overflowing from our TV screens, efforts to moralise are futile and unfashionable.
Our education system is quick to illustrate how 14-year-old girls can put condoms on to plastic glue sticks, but seldom highlights the importance of marriage as a foundation for future relationships.
The fall-out from society's fascination with sex and our educational system's acceptance of the status quo is depriving youngsters of their childhood innocence.
