Communication between schools and parents over sex education teaching must improve, a report has found.

The second part of a review into Isle of Man Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) teaching has been made public.

The independent investigation comes after complaints were made in February about inappropriate teaching.

While the executive summary of the report was published last month, a redacted copy of full report has now been released.

In the second stage of the review, investigators agreed that RSE lessons could restart with some conditions.

The report said investigators agreed that steps could be taken to recommence the curriculum, provided that all parents and carers were "informed in advance and have prior access to the full lesson content to enable them to make informed decisions about their child's participation".
