A Christian school assistant who was sacked for posting on Facebook about plans to teach LGBT relationships in primary schools is set to have her legal case heard.

Kristie Higgs, 44, was dismissed for gross misconduct by Farmor's School in Fairford last year.

The hearing takes place at Bristol Employment Tribunal on September 21-25.

In late October 2018, the mother of two shared two posts on her private Facebook page which raised concerns about sex education classes at her son’s primary school.

The first post by Mrs Higgs, who was posting on Facebook under her maiden name, encouraged people to sign a petition against making relationships education mandatory.

In another post, Mrs Higgs shared an article on the rise of transgender ideology in children’s books in American schools.

Mrs Higgs, who worked at the school as a pastoral worker and administrator for seven years, claims senior staff compared her views to ‘pro-Nazi’. 

Lawyers representing Mrs Higgs will argue that her sacking breached her freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
