UK: 13-Year-Old Girl Takes Council to Court Over Transgender School Policy


A 13-year-old schoolgirl is taken Oxford County Council to court on the basis their transgender inclusion toolkit puts her at risk.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons and instead identified as Miss A, is challenging the implementation of the “Trans Inclusion Toolkit.” It instructs schools to allow transgender students to access sex-segregated spaces that align with their “identified gender,” including changing rooms, toilets and bedrooms on residential trips.

Miss A said the toolkit has “a very significant impact on me as a girl”:

I am very surprised that the council never asked the opinion of girls in Oxfordshire about what we thought before they published the toolkit. Under these guidelines I have no right to privacy from the opposite sex in changing rooms, loos or on residential trips. Sports could end up being unsafe as I am a really small teenage girl and boys are bigger than girls. This guidance could be used in any educational establishment in Oxfordshire, which possible includes sports clubs. The guidance makes me feel that my desire for privacy, dignity, safety and respect is wrong. It makes me feel sad, powerless and confused. I recently did my level 1 safeguarding course for guider training and I don’t understand how allowing boys and girls to share private spaces is okay.

The Safe Schools Alliance, a campaign group consisting of parents, teachers, health and education professionals, who fight against the transgender ideology and for the safeguarding of sex-based protections, are supporting Miss A in her case.

A mother from Oxfordshire, Victoria Edwards, along with a teacher from the county, both had already filed cases to the High Court on this issue, but have dropped theirs to throw all their support behind Miss A.

The anonymous teacher said the guidance “forces her to act against” her own beliefs:

Under this guidance all teachers are required to ignore sex-based protections, as set out in the Equality Act 2010, which is problematic because teachers have a statutory duty to protect children from harm. Should children suffer harm as a result of the abandonment of basic safeguarding, this opens teachers up to liability. Additionally, teachers are required to undermine parental responsibilities and rights when they should be working together in the best interests of children. This is also not conducive to good outcomes for children.

Edwards noted that the Trans Inclusion Kit also “encourages parental alienation and suggests that any parent who doesn’t affirm their child’s chosen gender identity may be a safeguarding risk and causing harm to their child,” and advises anyone who criticises the new rules should be sanctioned for “acting hatefully.”
