Government to permit children to change names and pronouns in schools, leaks suggest

The UK government’s long-promised, and extremely controversial, trans guidance for schools could formally allow pupils to change their names and pronouns. New leaks suggest that the guidance will take a “a presumption against” trans youth changing genders at school, but would allow them to use new names or pronouns, and to change the uniform they wear. This would mark a significant change from previously leaked plans, which indicated that pupils could be banned from socially transitioning altogether. A government source told The Guardian that the guidance is still being worked on and could change before publication, which, according to education secretary Gillian Keegan, will be before Christmas.
