Norfolk parent appeals for support to
Stop Transgender Indoctrination in Primary Schools
Norfolk’s RSE programme teaches 7-year-old children that they are only born “like a boy”, or “like a girl”, and that they need to choose their gender from options including “boy, girl, and not sure”. 8-year-olds are taught that we live in a “heteronormative” world, but they can be “Pangender”, “Transgender”, and “Cisgender”, amongst others. The term “heterosexual” is not included as an option for sexual preference, giving children, in consequence, the impression that such minority sexual identities are the norm. The resource also uses sexual and age-inappropriate images for teaching young children.
The CofE primary school had neither properly consulted nor made it easy for parents to view the material, and the schools’ RSHE teacher even accused the parents of bigotry when they enquired about the extent to which the resource promoted critical race theory and gender ideology. These parents were then forced to undergo a protracted battle with their children’s school. A letter was sent to the Headteacher, asking why radical gender ideology needed to be taught to children so young and why it was being presented to them as fact, especially as the Department for Education (DfE) does not even require this to be taught in primary schools. The response the parents received was very dismissive, and their request for an independent evaluation of the RSHE resource was rejected.
The parents then lodged a formal complaint with the DfE; however, despite sending three follow-up letters over the course of the next 6 months, the DfE has not yet even assigned a case officer or commenced the investigation. A letter received from the parents’ local MP promised only to pass on their concerns. Ofsted claimed they could not act and instead passed the complaint back to the local authority (i.e., Norfolk County Council —the same local authority whose resource the complaint was about). Despite two press releases that were picked up by the Telegraph, the MailOnline, and GB News, the school’s leadership continued their refusal to collaborate or compromise.
