Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Nigel and Sally challenged the policy being used by the Department for Education which allowed this to happen.
When Nigel and Sally Rowe shared their story in the media in 2017, they were widely labelled as ‘bigots’ and ostracised and abused by many in their local community.
On ITV This Morning, for example, Phillip Schofield told the Rowes that they were ‘the ones with the problem’ and told them that “attitudes change, we’re less medieval now than we used to be.
Now, Nigel and Sally have settled their case, winning £22k in costs and a change of government approach to transgender policies in schools in England.
Not only this, but a recent speech from Attorney General Suella Braverman emphasised that a schools' duty is to protect children rather than pander to 'trans children'.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and enabled this legal challenge over the years. Nigel and Sally intend to donate the money they receive to the Christian Legal Centre.
Give thanks with us for what God's enabled us to achieve after many years of work and pray that this new approach would be reflected in schools across the country.
