Education

When a six-year-old boy in their son’s class started to come to school sometimes dressed as a girl, Nigel and Sally Rowe, who live on the Isle of Wight, raised concerns with the Church of England school. They say that their son, also six years old, came home from school upset and saying that he was “confused” by the situation.

Nigel and Sally met with the headteacher and class teacher, and followed up with a letter setting out some of the questions that they had. But the school’s formal response was “cold”, they say, and didn’t address their concerns.

In the letter, the school suggested that an “inability to believe a transgender person is actually a ‘real’ female or male” and the refusal to “acknowledge a transgendered person’s true gender e.g. by failing to use their adopted name or using gender inappropriate pronouns,” was “transphobic behaviour”.

Nigel and Sally reluctantly withdrew their son from the school and are challenging the way the school handled the situation. To help them in this challenge, please donate using one of the options below.

Ofsted’s Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman, also criticised faith schools in a speech at the launch of the report. Tim Dieppe points out that Christian schools are not to blame and Ofsted need to recognise that the worst examples they cite are from Islamic schools.
