Protests end as LGBT lessons end

Protests end as LGBT lessons end

A school at the centre of a row about teaching LGBT rights says it will not resume the lessons until a resolution has been reached with angry parents.

Weekly protests against the classes have been held outside the gates of Parkfield Community School in Birmingham.

After a meeting on Tuesday, the school said it wanted to continue working with parents to "find a solution".

Parents welcomed the decision and called off planned protests.

The school denied an earlier suspension of the lessons was a U-turn, saying it had always planned to stop the 'No Outsiders' project at half-term.

    

But the decision made after Tuesday's meeting means they will be stopped indefinitely.
