One of the youngest cases of gender transformation in the U.K. has officially been recognized.
The Daily Mail reports, a five-year-old boy returned to school as a girl. The head teacher of the school sent a letter home to parents to inform them and classmates of the transformation.
The girl’s parents wish to remain anonymous, but are receiving help and support.
“Transgender is a characteristic protected by law and therefore head teachers across England continue to and are required to agree a clear plan to support the needs of transgender children and young people,” said Colin Pettigrew, corporate director for children, families and cultural services, at Nottinghamshire County Council.
Currently there is only one specialist clinic, based in London, for young people with gender identity issues in the country.
