Scottish kids will reportedly be allowed to change their gender at school without the consent of their parents.
According to the Telegraph, the government has introduced the guidance which will apply to primary school students.
Alongside this ruling, teachers will also not be able to question a child who says they wish to transition and live as a boy or girl. Instead, they should ask if the student now has a different name and pronouns.

The official advice reads: “Some young people are exploring their gender identity in primary school settings.
“Primary schools need to be able to meet the needs of these young people to ensure they have a safe, inclusive and respectful environment in which to learn.”
There will also be changes made to lessons.
To promote inclusivity, books on transgender people will also be added to the curriculum.
Scottish education secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville has praised the move.
She said: “This guidance outlines how schools can support transgender young people while ensuring that the rights of all pupils are fully respected.
“It provides schools with practical suggestions. The guidance is not prescriptive and does not promote transitioning.”
However, Marion Calder, the director of the For Women Scotland campaign group, has argued that the change will be very ‘concerning’ for parents to hear.
On hearing the news, she commented: “To be transgender you have to have a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. What are they thinking? Parents will be very concerned to be reading this document.”
