Anderton Park Primary protests.

Head teachers have the flexibility in how they deliver these new subjects. We trust schools to tailor their lessons to meet the needs of their pupils. We also expect heads to consult with parents on the resources they will use.

I accept that there will be some people, particularly those who hold keenly felt beliefs and faiths, who will find some of this challenging.

Many will want to understand more and discuss how this will be delivered. Dialogue is always helpful in these situations.

But protest is not dialogue. Dialogue does not intimidate people, shout at teachers or prevent children from going to school.
