Parents protest against teaching equality lessons on homosexuality and gender

Protests have continued at a primary school in Birmingham over their lessons on sexuality.

The programme at Parkfield Community Primary school was introduced by Assistant Head, Andrew Moffat who was recently shortlisted for a global teaching prize for his work on equality and diversity.

The row is about a programme called 'No Outsiders' - it teaches children about diversity in modern day Britain which includes religious ethnic and sexual orientation.

Lessons include teaching children that it's ok to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

One protesting parent said: "At the age of 4 children they can barely go to the toilet by themselves let alone learn about these complex issues."

Another said: "They need to consult every single parent before doing anything they can't just make a decision and say tomorrow we going to teach this and then do it without us knowing."

The school is rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
