Equality lessons row: Protests to restart outside Anderton Park primary school tomorrow

Posted on 12 Sep 2019

Parents and activists demonstrating against the teaching of lessons about LGBT relationships at Birmingham’s Anderton Park primary school are set to restart their protest campaign tomorrow.


BirminghamLive reports the protest coordinator, Shakeel Afsar, as saying: "We were intending not to resume the protests, but the head teacher, Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson, recently tweeted an image of more LGBT books she had got for the school. I was inundated with calls from angry parents who saw this as provocative, so we will be back again on Friday."

The protests began in the spring before being brought to an end when Birmingham City Council won a high court injunction forbidding demonstrations to take place outside the school. 


A full court hearing next month will decide whether the temporary exclusion zone should become permanent.

Tomorrow’s protest will take place outside the exclusion zone.
