'Gender-neutral' toilets for junior infant pupils as young as four should be considered to make certain children feel more comfortable in the classroom, primary school teachers have said.
And in a historic intervention, the Irish National Teachers Organisation (INTO) has now called for the introduction of unisex uniforms, which would cater for all sexes.
This would mean an end to the traditional gymslip, tartan kilt for girls, and v-neck jumpers and grey trousers for boys.
Peter Mullan, assistant general secretary of INTO, says people must accept we live in a changing society, and there must be recognition that some children have gender dysphoria.
