A booklet intended to help schools in Warwickshire become trans-inclusive is under review following complaints from parents.
The 50-page booklet, which is subtitled 'Gender is not just pink and blue', describes itself as a ‘best practice guide’. It was issued to all schools in the county by Warwickshire County Council earlier this year.
The booklet was created with the involvement of Gendered Intelligence, a trans support group, and Allsorts Youth Project
Commenting on the decision to formally suspend the booklet’s use, a spokesman for the council told Coventry Live: “Trans is an evolving, complex area, and it was identified that there was a knowledge gap within schools.
“It is our duty to provide schools with guidance to ensure all pupils are able to be themselves and reach their full potential in an inclusive school environment, without fear of judgement and discrimination.
“The toolkit is currently being reviewed in light of feedback, to ensure it is as robust as possible for schools to use.”
