Just days after Birmingham's Parkfield Community School announced that it would be restarting equality lessons programme No Outsiders in the autumn - but in a modified form - protesters against the lessons have announced that they will be restarting demonstrations outside the school on Monday.
Yesterday, a group of parents of children at Parkfield hit out at the amended version of No Outsiders.
The programme was modified following a consultation with parents, and has been retitled No Outsiders For A Faith Community.
According to a school spokesperson, the new version of the programme acknowledges and respects ‘the concerns and sensitivity expressed by some parents’. It will include lessons referencing race, religion, age, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation and disability.
But the Parkfield Parents Group has revealed that it voted against the new version of the programme.
Explaining the decision, the group said in a statement: “This is because it is well known that the original programme and now even the new programme is heavily biased towards LGBTQ, whereas an equality programme doesn't need to be.”
Fatima Shah, whose daughter is at Parkfield, said: "We just haven't been listened to. We have said we don't want children in reception to be shown books with same-sex relationships. It’s confusing for them.
"But the school has said it will do exactly the same as it was doing before but with a slightly different name. How is that taking our views into account?"
