Corinne Smith started this petition to Director Educational Leadership - Canterbury Network and

Not all children have a Mother/Father but all children have a Parent/Carer and in the interests of protecting the self esteem and wellbeing of school children and including them all, we are petitioning for the use of the more inclusive Parent/Carer language to be used.

It takes nothing away from the majority of families to use inclusive language and yet it contributes immensely to feelings of self worth for minority families (eg foster families, families where a parent has passed away or is absent and same sex families to name a few).

Thank you for your time in supporting this small change with significant impact.
