TEACHERS will be given age ratings for what sex education they can teach kids under new rules.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan yesterday announced an independent hit squad of experts to help shape a review.

Gillian Keegan, Secretary of State for Education, aims to reassure parents children will not see inappropriate content during sex ed in schools

The panel will advise her on what age kids should be taught about relationships and sex.

The move aims to reassure parents that children will not see inappropriate content.

Mums and dads will also have a right to see their kids’ curriculum.

The new panel will not report back until September — kicking the review into 2024.

But Ms Keegan insisted it is coming “as quickly as possible”.

She said: “The wellbeing and safeguarding of children’s our absolute priority. The vast majority of teachers do an incredible job navigating these complex, sensitive issues.

“But the review of the statutory guidance will provide clear safeguards against children being taught concepts they’re too young to understand.”
