Supporting Transgender Young People in Schools: Response to Petition

response to petition

A petition was submitted to the Scottish Parliament calling for the removal of the Scottish Government’s Guidance “Supporting transgender young people in schools: guidance for Scottish schools”. 


Our vision is that all transgender and non-binary young people be able to flourish and thrive as learners in schools, colleges and universities. Our Life in Scotland research found that 69% of transgender participants had experienced bullying in school. We wrote in opposition of the petitions as we believe that the guidance is vital to ensure that all learners can fulfil their potential.
