Gender questioning children guidance for schools: CES statement

The government has today (19 December) launched a consultation on Gender questioning children: draft schools and colleges guidance.  

Paul Barber, Catholic Education Service Director, said: “While some clarity from the government is welcome, Catholic schools have been responding to pupils over this issue for many years, on a case-by-case basis, with sensitivity and understanding that each individual’s needs vary. Catholic education focuses on the God-given dignity of each individual, regardless of what gender they are. We will be participating in the consultation in due course.”
