A school at the centre of an LGBT rights teaching row has written to parents to urge them to stop holding “disruptive” and “upsetting” protests. Parkfield Community school in Alum Rock, Birmingham, has been teaching the No Outsiders programme at the school for four years. No Outsiders covers the teaching of LGBT rights and homophobia. However, recently parents have protested and removed children from the school over topics covered. Parents have said that the programme is “not age-appropriate”. No Outsiders was created by the school’s assistant head, Andrew Moffat, with the idea of educating children to accept differences in society.
