A protest outside a Nottingham school against the teaching of lessons that include information about LGBT relationships is being planned for next week.


A blogger going by the name BullyKhan has uploaded videos to Facebook urging people to join in the protest at Fernwood Primary School in Wollaton on Monday 22 July at 8.30am. 

He says in the video that the protest is in order to ‘save the children’.


Speaking to NottinghamshireLive, Mandy Austin, executive head teacher at the school, said: “I’m proud of the positive reaction and support we’ve had from parents and the wider community in response to the planned protest outside our school.

“We’ve worked closely with parents to make sure they feel involved and engaged in how we deliver relationships and sex education.


"All of the RSE lesson content is posted on our school website for parents to read and we hold an annual meeting to talk to parents about what we cover.”
