Protected or just sexual victims?;Letter
I am appalled that the head and his governing body at Hayesfield upper school in Bath encourages the school nurse to refer pupils to the next-door GP for contraceptive services (TES, February 26). No child should receive such services without parental knowledge. Why is the school appearing to encourage deceitful, dangerous and possibly illegal sexual experiment?
Such an irresponsible culture might purport to create confident and non-pregnant pupils. In reality, I suggest that it creates a proportion of girls who are available to become sexual victims, because they are "catered for".
