LGBT teaching row: Birmingham primary school protests permanently banned

Nov 26, 2019 by

from BBC News:

Demonstrations against LGBT inclusive education have been permanently banned outside a primary school.

A High Court judge ruled in favour of an exclusion zone to remain around Anderton Park in Birmingham which has been targeted by protesters for months.

The protests had an averse affect on pupils, residents and staff, leading to 21 teachers being treated for stress, Mr Justice Warby said.

Campaigners accused the city council of trying to silence debate.

The protests at the school in Balsall Heath aimed to stop LGBT relationships education, with many parents and activists claiming it contradicts their Islamic faith and is not “age appropriate”.

Since June protesters have gathered just outside the exclusion zone.

In a hearing last month, the city council argued an interim injunction should be extended beyond school gates and made permanent.

Birmingham City Council said the noisy protests at the school gates were disrupting lessons and meant children were unable to use the playground.
