Not 3; not 44; Hundreds! Says Alice Hoyle

According to Alice Hoyle, SRE advisory teacher, parent and writer, the number of schools with problematic SRE guidelines and policies runs into 100s rather than tens.

Following the discovery that many academies – and some LEA schools – still operate policies that hark back to Section 28 and refer to it being unacceptable to “promote” homosexuality, Alice has entered the fray. First, she says, the DfE guidance itself states that policies should say schools “must not promote sexual orientation.”

She goes on to suggest the guidance itself might be in breach of the Equality Act. Finally, she quotes one school policy as stating it wouldn’t promote “one lifestyle choice over another”.Alice Hoyle
