Here are some useful links that I found regarding sex education in primary schools:

Also I found that Roding Primary School (Dagenham, Essex) teaches sex-ed to children starting from 5years of age.

Articels reffering to sex education being taught in pramary schools:

1) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/telegraph-view/3563003/Five-is-too-young-to-get-sex-education.html

The article says about intorudcing a bill about making obligatory sex and relationship lessons from ages 5 to 16 and mainly negative opiions regarding to that idea.

'While policymakers persist with the idea that sex education reduces unwanted pregnancies, the evidence suggests otherwise. Many argue that it would be more useful if girls in their early teens were given lessons not about sex (about which most of them seem to know plenty) but about just how tough is to bring up a baby'

'Childhood is a most precious time. To introduce five and six year olds into a world of adult emotions and relationships takes some of the magic away. Children should be allowed to be children.'

2) http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/106233/are_children_learning_sexual_education.html

This aticle was written by mum of 10 years old boy , in a 5th grade who firmly belives that children in 5th grade are to young to be taught about sex or sexual content.

'Sexual Education classes should be taught mainly in, 7th and 8th grade, because this is when most kids begin to change and fall into puberty. So yes they should be taught about safe sex.'

'In 6th grade some classes should be taught about their own bodies and the changes they will soon face. But this is not for 10 and 11 year old children in the 5th grade because that is what they are merely children who still play with toys.'
