Birmingham primary school to resume modified LGBT lessons

A primary school in Birmingham that suspended lessons about LGBT equality following protests by parents is to resume a modified version of the programme in September. The Guardian reports.

The school announced on Wednesday that a modified version of the scheme, “No outsiders for a faith community”, would be introduced in September. However, some parents have said they are not happy with the outcome of the consultation and may resume their protests.

The programme was developed by the assistant headteacher Andrew Moffat, who was awarded an MBE for his work in equality education. It is taught by schools across the country, the ethos being to promote LGBT equality and challenge homophobia in primary schools.
