Christian school governor fears sack for questioning LGBT reading list and pride month

A Christian school governor with decades of service has been suspended after saying that she would not have wanted her two sons to read books with LGBT themes.

Maureen Griffith, 73, who worked as an NHS nurse for 40 years, was a governor at Alperton Community School in Brent, northwest London, for more than 20 years.

In May she received a letter telling her that she had been suspended from the governing body after two complaints alleging that she had made “homophobic comments at a public meeting”. She now fears she will be sacked.

The row comes days before the High Court is due to be asked to extend an injunction protecting Anderton Park School in Birmingham from protests by Muslim parents and activists at school gates over its LGBT lessons.

Griffith said she had simply questioned plans to draw up reading lists for library books in LGBT pride month. “I raised that the introduction of LGBT books and pride month into the school had not been mentioned before at any previous meetings,” she said. “I said that parents had not been consulted and that there would be parents with children from religious backgrounds who would object and not want their children to have any form of sex education.
