Children will also be prohibited from using “maiden name” and “Christian name” in a move to avoid causing offence to people of “all genders, religions, races and to those who live with a disability”.
Instead, Scouts are told to use “first name” or “given name” instead, while “previous name” is preferred to “maiden name” as it is an “outdated term”.
Also included is “school meals supervisors” or “school dinner assistants“ instead of “dinner ladies”.
The document adds that Scouts, made up of children aged between 10 and 14, will now play “broken telephone” instead of the traditional “Chinese whispers“ game.
