'A boy of three was dressed in a girl’s uniform for school after living with foster parents whose own son transitioned to being female at the age of seven.
The younger child was taken to school dressed as a girl despite teachers ‘expressly’ asking the foster couple to put him in boys’ clothing.
The parents at the centre of the case, which came to light in a court judgment released last week, also had a third child in their care who had ‘gender identity issues’.
The couple, known only as CP and TP, were investigated by Lancashire County Council’s social services amid accusations they had ‘manipulated’ their children’s gender and risked causing them ‘significant emotional harm’.
The council initially wanted five children who were living with the couple taken into care. But last Friday the couple were exonerated by a High Court judge who praised them as ‘good parents’, and ‘attuned and careful’.
Mr Justice Williams said: ‘The evidence from almost all sources of how the children are prospering in the care of CP and TP provides very powerful support to the contention that CP and TP are good parents.’
The judgment provides further insight into the couple who had been foster carers for 16 years. Two of the five children who were the subjects of the court proceedings were their natural children and three were fostered.'
