Who is Glawdys Leger?

Glawdys Leger is a 43-year-old professional teacher living in England.

She is a modern foreign languages teacher at Bishop Justus CofE School in Bromley, south London.

She has taught at Bishop Justus CofE School since 2017.

In her career as a children’s teacher, she has 12 years of experience.

However, she faced, undoubtedly, the most challenging moment in her profession after she was asked to teach her students about extreme LGBT topics and she refused which reportedly led to a rift between her and the school’s authorities.

What happened to Glawdys Leger?

Glawdys Leger was dismissed in May 2022 after she said she wouldn’t teach LGBT material on the religious education syllabus to year seven pupils.

Ms Leger said she was ‘treated like a dangerous criminal’ after she shared her belief with students that LGBT practices were sinful and that humans are born either male or female.

She was later reported to the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA) following reports she had upset one pupil with her views.

Leger could now face being banned from the profession indefinitely after a ‘fitness to practise’ hearing in Coventry due to start on Monday.

It is thought to be the first time a TRA case against a teacher at a CofE school has progressed to a full hearing.

Ms Leger took particular issue with introducing children to the concept of gender and sexual identities, including pansexual, asexual, intersex, and transgender, as well as the promotion of Critical Race Theory and abortion.

The RE teaching syllabus included the suggestion that people could be ‘born in the wrong body’ as well as encouraging students to have ‘allyship’ for queer people.

Teachers were also required to screen a film entitled ‘Fit’ which looks at millennials with protected characteristics.

Ahead of her hearing, Ms Leger said: ‘The impact of what has happened to me has taken a great toll on me. The thought of losing my career for expressing my Christian beliefs in response to questions from students is heartbreaking.

‘I was treated like a criminal and as though I was a danger for expressing my Christian beliefs.

‘I have great compassion for LGBT people, especially for those suffering from gender confusion. I cannot, however, in good conscience teach or say things I believe are contrary to my faith, for example saying that same sex sexual relationships are good and/or affirming people in their gender confusion.’

She added that the Christian aspects at Bishop Justus were ‘just for show’ and that political and ethical beliefs contrary to religious practice were being promoted without the knowledge of parents.

A spokesman for the Aquinas Church of England Education Trust said: ‘Delivering a high-quality education and supporting the wellbeing of students is our top priority. 

‘To ensure this is achieved, we promote fundamental British values including mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. The school teaches in line with statutory requirements to promote British values and follows relevant guidance outlined by the Department for Education.

‘Given the ongoing investigation and sensitivities involved, it would not be appropriate to comment any further.’
