A primary school teacher has claimed that she was sacked after refusing to use an eight-year-old’s preferred pronouns.
The teacher is taking legal action against Nottinghamshire County Council, which runs the school, for alleged unfair dismissal.
She claimed that, two years ago, the school where she worked decided to facilitate the social transition of a girl who wanted to be treated as a boy.
The school instructed all staff to always refer to the girl with male pronouns and a male name, and said that she should use the boys’ toilets and dressing rooms.
“Hey You!” is appropriate at all times, no?
