& # 39; This tells us that children are curious, they are trying to gain access (pornography), and it tells us that the precautions in the school environment are appropriate & she said.

& # 39; But it means we need communities, parents, whānau and teachers who feel confident and skilled enough to have conversations about the harmful effects of pornography. & # 39;

Ms. Cleaver said that compulsory sex education in schools in New Zealand is a & # 39; crucial part & # 39; was from the curriculum for health and education.

Nevertheless, Mrs. Cleaver added some teachers that they had difficulty teaching about the & # 39; real problems & # 39 ;.

Associate Deputy Secretary at the Department of Education Pauline Cleaver said: & # 39; This tells us that children are curious, they are trying to access (pornography), and it tells us that precautions are present in the school environment & # 39;

& # 39; There is a problem of trust with some teachers who feel bad at teaching and managing conversations about real issues, such as consent, such as sexual violence and the harmful effects of pornography, & # 39; she said.

Nikki Kaye, a spokesperson for National & # 39; s Education, admitted that she & # 39; deeply concerned & # 39; was about the extent to which young people have access to porn.

She suggested that a & # 39; sexualization was taking place & # 39; and children's access to devices in their homes meant it was harder to track what they were viewing.
