New guidance requires ‘outing’ trans children

The government’s new guidance will require teachers to ‘out’ trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming children to their parents. Young people exploring their gender will be informed to parents against their will, regardless of whether the school has marked these children at risk of harm in their family setting. However, there is an exception for children believed to be at risk of significant harm at home.

Ban on trans girls participating in contact sports

The guidance will ban trans girls from taking part in contact and competitive school sports on girls’ teams. However, the rules on non-contact sports will be “more relaxed.”

Detailed rules for informing parents

The guidance will provide detailed rules about when schools must inform parents about their children questioning their gender. A number of “triggers” are mentioned, including a child changing their name or uniform, including “a boy wearing a skirt.” The prime minister, Rishi Sunak, is “concerned about parental consent.”

Teacher calls the guidance “dangerous”

A London-based secondary school teacher called the new guidance “dangerous.” The teacher said teachers and schools do not have all the information about every child’s home environment, and instead of supporting a pupil to be themselves in school, they could be putting them at risk of harm.

Stonewall calls for inclusive environments

Europe’s leading LGBTQ+ rights organisation, Stonewall, called on the government to avoid “stoking a politically motivated culture war.” The spokesperson said LGBTQ+ children and young people deserve the same opportunity to thrive as any other child, and it is key that schools are respectful and supportive. Stonewall also stressed that any moves to shut trans people out of common spaces represent an appalling rollback on trans people’s well-established rights.

The Department for Education’s response

The Department for Education said that the education secretary, Gillian Keegan, is “deeply concerned by reports of inappropriate relationships, sex and health education (RSHE) lessons.” The department has written to schools to remind them of their duty to show parents materials used in lessons and is working with the minister for women and equalities to publish guidance for schools for the summer term on how to respond to children who are questioning their gender identity.

Conclusion

The new guidance by the UK Conservative government has caused concern among LGBTQ+ rights advocates. They stress that the guidance could put trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming children at risk of harm and roll back their established rights. The government is expected to publish the guidance in the coming weeks.
