Birmingham: Parents were forced to stage the demonstration outside Anderton Park Primary School in Moseley after head teacher Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson refused to withdraw NO OUTSIDERS PROGRAMME being taught without consultation with parents who feel children’s are too young to push the programme which is not compulsory.
Spokesman for Justice for our Children Mr Shakeel Afsar stated that they have tried their best to hold collective consultations with head teacher who refused to hold the meeting on the grounds of law and order situation and further stated that head teacher have been conveyed through hundreds of letter from parents reminding her of the human rights act 1998 which clearly stated “The State must respect the rights of parents religious and philosophical convictions in respect of education and teaching”.
Shakeel Afsar stated that the protest was held from 3.15pm till 3.45pm and will continue every day until the programme is withdrawn, and demanded the removal of the head teacher for her bullying tactics, she even called the police today on peaceful demonstrators and they arrived soon after the protest finished, Mr Afsar spoke to the officer and explained the nature of the protest and police officers who came in two cars confirmed they have no issue and were informed the protest will continue every day from 3.15pm till 3.45pm peacefully until she withdraws the programme and have collective consultation with parents or she is removed as head teacher
Another parent who wanted to remain anonymous due to Mrs Hewitt-Clarkson intimidated method of dividing the parents by giving different explanations to each parents and impressing upon them that it is compulsory to teach children the programme, she is creating fear that if we protest and we would be arrested and our children would be expelled from the school, but police assured us that it is our right to hold peaceful protest within the law of the land and I will be encouraging other parents not to be frighten by her intimidation, KBC News tried to contact the head teacher without any success to hear her side of the issue.
