Schools to be assessed on support for same-sex marriage

May 10, 2018 by

from Coalition for Marriage:

Ofsted could fail a school if a teacher says they back the repeal of same-sex marriage.

That’s the effect of new guidance the Government is consulting on right now. Initially it just applies to independent schools, but it’s only a matter of time before it is applied to all schools in England through Ofsted’s common inspection framework.

The proposed guidance says it will be a breach of the school standards if a school curriculum “suggests that same-sex marriages or civil partnerships should not be recognised as being lawful unions under civil law” (see the draft guidance, para. 20).

Teachers will be gagged. Children will be indoctrinated. Even teachers who give for and against points of view could fall foul of this approach. This will dramatically escalate the high-profile clashes between Ofsted and schools with a Christian or Jewish ethos. If ever there was a case of LGBT overreach this is it.

By standing together we can defeat this proposal. That’s why the Coalition for Marriage exists. But we need to stay in touch with you to continue our vital work.
