A Christian family on the Isle of Wight has been awarded £22,000 in legal costs in settlement of their court case against the Department for Education, following a five-year legal battle.

Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Nigel Rowe, 49, and his wife Sally, 47, had taken legal action against the Department for Education (DfE).

They and their six-year-old son were labelled ‘transphobic’ by a Church of England primary school for refusing to ‘believe’ in transgender affirming policies.

The government has now decided to settle the case after the Rowes won permission at the High Court for a judicial review of the government’s transgender-affirming policies.
