Inclusion statement on Gender Identity erased from National Curriculum.


The current draft National Curriculum Document (July 2013)

“Teachers should take account of their duties under equal opportunities legislation that covers disability, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.” (page 8)

The Feb 2013 draft stated:

4.2 Teachers should take account of their duties under equal opportunities legislation that covers disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, gender identity, and religion or belief.

ERM WHERE HAS GENDER IDENTITY GONE!? (listed as gender reassignment under protected characteristics legislation). Also interesting that Gender changed to Sex in new version (although to be fair Sex is the protected characteristic in law not gender).

  4. this is so disappointing. totally unfair and completely ridiculous, a step back in the fight for equal rights for LGBT. if trans children can’t even be treated equally by their own children, just imagine how badly it would affect them in the playground and the future.
