Relationship lessons part of sex education
Youngsters are to be taught about relationships - not just the "nuts and bolts" of biology - as part of a campaign to cut the number of teenage pregnancies.Leicester City Council has almost doubled the amount of time it dedicates to giving advice to staff who teach on the subject.
Education bosses want to improve sex education to reinforce the message that "It is OK to say no".
The Government is concerned about the number of pregnant girls in Leicester, with rates particularly high in the west of the city.
It wants teachers to give children information about relationships and how to talk to their parents about issues surrounding sex, as well as providing lessons on biology and advice on contraception.
