A strictly Orthodox schools spokesman has welcomed the shelving of new proposals on sex education.
The government was forced to drop them because there was insufficient time to get the measures through Parliament before the general election.
Rabbi Jonathan Guttentag, convener of the National Association of Orthodox Schools, said: "I'm delighted they have been thrown out. It would have been impossible for strictly Orthodox schools to have complied with them. It was a collision course and it would not have been responsible to go down such a route."
