Pupils as young as five will be taught about the evils of 'wife beating' and the need to form healthy relationships.
The lessons are part of a controversial drive, unveiled today, to reduce violence against women and young girls.
They will include teaching boys that they must not beat their partners or any other female.
Last night, critics warned that ministers are cramming the already over-stuffed National Curriculum with lessons that should be taught in the home or in the community.
Others say the plan is part of the feminist agenda led by Harriet Harman in her role as Equalities Minister.
They pointed out the new classes will not cover violence against men, who are far more likely to be the victims of violent crime.
In the past few days alone, Miss Harman has blamed men for the banking crisis, and suggested the Labour Party should always have a female in one of its top two posts.
