Natasha Thoday, by her own admission, has one main concern - herself.

Her comment that she will "next time buy a Rolls-Royce" indicates a self-serving attitude.

Andrew Kearsey, on the other hand, was prepared to make significant personal sacrifice in order to best serve his staff and pupils.

It is Ms Thoday who was acting inappropriately and not head teacher Andrew Kearsey.

Current research shows primary schoolchildren bully each other at school because of confusion about their own gender and sexuality as they develop.

Surely this supports the suggestion that a transsexual is not an appropriate role model in the educational setting of very young children.
