The Times reports today on the Warwickshire County Council Trans Inclusion Toolkit, which was suspended last year after complaints from parents.

Safe Schools Alliance have worked with and support the parents who have successfully challenged this council guidance. As The Times notes, the Warwickshire guidance is very similar to the Oxfordshire guidance: a successful outcome of the Judicial Review into Oxfordshire County Councils Trans Inclusion Toolkit could lead to legal action being threatened and taken against many more councils and individual schools.

The parents who have been successful against Warwickshire County Council have proved that parental pushback is effective against policy capture. Please check your schools policies and challenge them if they fail to correctly uphold the Equality Act 2010 and/or effectively safeguard all students. We have resources to help with this.
