'Politics Home' reports that the UK's PHSE Association has issued a warning to the Government over serious risks to child safety – as official figures show a fall of 32% in time allocated to PSHE education (Personal, Social, Health Education) on the curriculum in the past 4 years in UK secondary schools, including lessons on how pupils can help to keep themselves and others safe from abuse and online dangers.

This significant decline comes as new YouGov online polling shows that 92% of parents believe that all pupils should receive PSHE lessons about staying safe from abuse and unsafe contact from strangers both online and offline.
