A gay primary school teacher who has been targeted amid protests from parents over homosexuality teachings has been inundated with supportive cards from children saying “everyone is welcome”. Andrew Moffat, assistant headteacher at Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, has received threatening emails and chants calling for him to leave over the past few weeks. Around 100 parents protested outside the school gates on Thursday against his teachings on same-sex relationships. Adults with megaphones shouted “Get Mr Moffat out”. The teacher believes his openness about his sexuality triggered the opprobrium.
