LGBT lessons 'not axed' at Birmingham school.

LGBT lessons 'not axed' at Birmingham school.

The assistant head of a school at the centre of a row about teaching LGBT rights said the classes have not been axed for good despite parent protests.

The No Outsiders project was halted after demonstrations outside Parkfield Community School in Birmingham.

But Andrew Moffat said the school was now re-engaging with parents and said the lessons "prepare children for life in modern Britain".

Parents protested outside the school for the fourth time on Thursday.

They believe the subject is "undermining parental rights and authority" and have said the lessons are "toxic" and "disgusting".
