An email to my kid's school

'Dear XXX, I am slightly concerned that [son] came home recently to tell me that he has been told by a teacher that children can be born in the wrong body. The Government has specifically said, very recently, that such language is inappropriate.
I also have a few questions about the information provided by the school as per the email below.

Where the term ‘gender’ is used in the information, do you mean sex? Sex is a protected characteristic, gender identity is not.
Also, when gender identity is discussed, will children be taught that they all have a gender identity (an ideological not scientific assumption) and that gender identity overrides both boys’ and girls’ rights to single sex spaces?
Will they also be taught that it is transphobic for girls to want, and request, single sex spaces?

Will children be taught that women can have a penis and men can have a vagina?
I’m just trying to ascertain how much of what will be taught is scientific, how much is in line with the Equality Act, and how much is ideological.

I don't suppose they'll answer, but felt I had to write it.
