Draft guidance on trans and non-binary students 'punches down on the most vulnerable'

19 December 2023

Responding to the government's draft guidance on gender questioning children, UCU general secretary Jo Grady said:

'The draft guidance published today is the latest instalment in a cruel culture war that punches down on the most vulnerable in our society. It offers little of use to institutions that are seeking to navigate complex realities, and it seeks to deny children and young people basic respect. It does nothing to create safe and inclusive learning environments for all. Just like this callous and divisive government, it is not fit for purpose.'
