Christian parents take their son, six, out of Church of England primary school and plan to sue because a male classmate is allowed to wear a dress

A Christian couple who took their son out of a Church of England primary because a boy in his class was allowed to wear a dress are planning to sue the school.

Nigel Rowe, 44, and his wife Sally, 42, said their child had come home ‘confused as to why and how a boy was now a girl’ after his classmate wore female uniform.

The boy also turned up to their son’s royal-themed birthday party in April wearing a blue velvet dress – rather than coming dressed as a knight like other children.

The couple – who play an active part in school life – say they have a good relationship with the six-year-old’s parents.
