There are growing concerns with guidance given for Relationship Sex Education “RSE”.
Kent and Barnsley councils are withdrawing on transgender issues in schools. In an email exchange with a concerned citizen, TEP’s Gille Heath said:
“In response to questions raised as to the legality of the Guidance, this was taken down on 15 May and is now under review.”
Last week, Shropshire County Council withdrew its own controversial guidance on transgenderism for schools and colleges and asked them to stop using the advice.
The document, ‘Guidance for schools and colleges on transgender and supporting transgender pupils’, said that pupils should have the “right” to use the toilets which match their so-called gender identity,
and should be allowed to access the changing rooms of the opposite sex.
Earlier this month, Oxfordshire Council’s ‘Trans Inclusion Toolkit for Schools 2019’ was also withdrawn amid pressure from parents and an impending court case.
In March, lawyers representing Warwickshire County Council told The Christian Institute that it was dropping its explicit and misleading All About Me programme following the Institute’s threat of legal action.
