As a parent of two children attending Telscombe Cliffs Primary School, I express my full support for head teacher Andrew Kearsey in the action he took regarding Natasha Thoday.
While I have nothing personally against transsexuals, the resulting confusion and disruption generated by this person among the children did not create an atmosphere conducive to learning.
Additionally, I would not be happy about a teacher actively encouraging questions from children of this age regarding the subject of adult sexuality.
In my experience, Mr Kearsey is a conscientious, considerate, caring and respected teacher.
The action he took in dispensing with the services of Ms Thoday was taken in the best interests of the children.
