Stonewall guide ‘misleads and intimidates’ schools over ‘inclusive’ Ofsted checks

from The Christian Institute:

Primary schools should not be intimidated into creating a pro-LGBT curriculum, The Christian Institute has warned.

It follows the publication of a guide from radical LGBT lobby group Stonewall that Ofsted will be watching schools to make sure lessons are “LGBT inclusive”.

However, Ofsted makes no requirement for LGBT teaching to be included across the curriculum, and the watchdog says it respects schools’ autonomy.

Religious education

Stonewall’s document lays out subject-specific advice for ‘embedding’ LGBT content across the curriculum.

For Religious Education it suggests teachers of five to seven-year-olds:

– “plan your own school based Pride celebration” as part of work on festivals.

– “When learning about religious naming ceremonies, teach that some trans people choose to have a ‘naming ceremony’ or blessing following their transition.”

The guidance is supported by the publicly-funded Government Equalities Office.
