from Christian Today:

The Christian Coalition for Education (CCFE) has written to headteachers across the country urging them to be careful about what they teach in Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) lessons.

Headed up by former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, the coalition in its letter points to guidance issued by the Department for Education last September prohibiting “the promotion of partisan political views in the teaching of any subject in the school”, and telling schools to exercise “extreme caution when working with external agencies”.

The guidance further states, “Materials which suggest that non-conformity to gender stereotypes should be seen as synonymous with having a different gender identity should not be used and you should not work with external agencies or organisations that produce such materials.

“Teachers should not suggest to a child that their non-compliance with gender stereotypes means that either ‘their personality or their body is wrong and in need of changing.”

The guidance was issued by the DfE after parents and campaign groups warned about the nature of some RSE resources.
