Donna Mackay started this petition to HIGHLAND COUNCIL
Problem
I have been made aware that when highland council carries out a refurbishment in their primary schools it is now their policy to install unisex toilets. This is currently happening in Bettyhill primary. It means that boys and girls from primary 1 to 7 are expected to use the same facilities. This is being done without informing or consulting parents whose children this affects. This will be an uncomfortable and embarrassing situation for children of both sexes. A 5 year old girl in Primary 1 is expected to go to the toilet on her own and could walk in to the toilet where there are a group of older up to Primary 7 aged boys. Girls in primary 7 could be starting puberty and having to deal with menstruation and all that goes with it, now facing this along with boys in the same facilities. I’m my opinion this is unacceptable. It could also be a catalyst for bullying or worse.

Solution
I think if they want to have a non gender specific toilet that is ok but it must be alongside traditional segregated toilets. I need to gain some support to try and get them to change their policy on this. It may not be affecting you at the moment but could in future.
