Parkfield school head hits back at ridiculous rumors about LGBT-inclusive program


Parkfield, the Birmingham school at the center of a row over LGBT-inclusive teaching, says that the claims about the 4-year-olds taught about anal sex make no sense. As nearby Birmingham schools follow suit in scrapping LGBT lessons, Parkfield’s CEO has hit back at claims teachers are modeling gay sex to primary school students. Pulley, who has led Parkfield since 2010, said that “five or six” teachers have taken sick leave as a result of the situation, their physical and mental health is damaged and they are no longer able to work, just because of something that did not even happen. On March 4, Parkfield paused the No Outsiders program after children were withdrawn in a parent protest. Approximately 600 children, from mostly Muslim backgrounds, were reported to be kept at home for the day. The program was suspended indefinitely on March 14. A statement from the school read: “Until a resolution has been reached, No Outsiders lessons will not be taught at Parkfield and we hope that children will not be removed from school to take part in protests.”
