Oxfordshire secondary school teacher Joshua Sutcliffe has been suspended and faces losing his job after being accused of ‘misgendering’ a pupil during one of his lessons.
Despite apologising for his mistake, Joshua has been suspended from his post as a maths teacher and faces a disciplinary hearing in two days time after the transgender pupil’s mother's complained.
Joshua claims he has been given no training of how to address transgender students, felt completely ‘out of his depth’ and as a Christian has his own beliefs on the matter. He joins us now alongside Andrea Williams of the Christian Legal Centre who is supporting Joshua and believes schools are ‘making it all up as they go along’ when it comes to the correct way of addressing transgender pupils.
