- Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett being investigated over links to homophobic material
- She is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign which was set up in last year
- The Health and Care Professions Council is now investigating the psychologist
A psychologist, who has continuously opposed LGBT lessons in schools, is to be investigated over her opposition to homosexuality.
Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett, who is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign and converted to Islam 25 years ago, is now under investigation by the Health and Care Professions Council over her views, The Guardian has reported.
The campaign group, which was set up in 2018, is strongly opposed to what it deems 'secular liberal sexual ideologies' being taught to children in schools.
An investigation carried by the Observer earlier this year found that the National Secular Society (NSS) had written to the Health and Care Professions Council, the governing body for Godfrey-Faussett's profession, over whether her role is compatible with the ethical standards of her professional body.
In a letter seen by the paper, dated on February 18, the NSS warned that the campaign group had 'promoted material which says the punishment for homosexuality is death.'
According to The Guardian, the society went on to write: 'Our research has found that downloadable resources which were available on Stop RSE’s website as recently as last week (since withdrawn) included a book which endorses lashing and killing gay people.'
There is no suggestion that Godfrey-Faussett herself endorses such material.
Following the claim it is understood that the health body has launched an inquiry and is gathering relevant information.
In February, the health professional was filmed delivering a talk titled 'Relationship and Sex Education in Schools' as part of an RSE workshop in Birmingham.
During the talk, Godfrey-Faussett said: 'The danger with RSE is not in the minimal guidelines, it's the fact that actually it's an open doorway or an open gateway for sex ed organisations and the LGBT lobby groups, their resources, and their sexuality education to our schools.
'That is a danger and that is the crux of the point that people don't always understand.'
Describing how young children were not able to understand the concepts of LGBT education she added: 'The LGBT lobby groups, the sex ed organisations are going to schools, they are already actually in a lot of our schools, and pushing their agenda's and their ideologies and nobody is monitoring this.
'There's a real risk because of this that our children will become sexualised.'
The psychologist has also been behind the petition, which has already gathered 115,615 signatures, to give parents the right to opt their child out of sex education in schools.
A spokesman for the Health and Care Professions Council, which regulates Godfrey-Faussett, told the Observer: 'We are aware of concerns about Kate Godfrey-Faussett and are looking into what action, if any, we need to take. We have a duty of confidentiality to all parties involved and it would not be appropriate for us to comment further.'
Godfrey-Faussett said she had not been told about the details of the complaint.
She told the Observer: 'I have simply tried to warn people of the underlying liberal secular agenda of RSE and the harm that it may cause children – and is, in fact, already causing based on reports I am receiving from parents.
'It is well known that if you speak out against the secular narrative they will silence you.'
An investigation into the psychologist comes at the same time Parkfield Community School in Alum Rock, Birmingham, finds itself embroiled in a row over its No Outsiders programme, developed by Andrew Moffat.
The programme, which focused on teaching LGBT rights in classes, was halted after Muslim parents staged protests against the lessons.
