Muslim mums protest outside school for 'promoting homosexuality' to their kids

But Parkfield Community School in Saltley defends programme which challenges homophobia in primary schools

A group of angry mums have launched a protest and petition against their school for introducing a curriculum supporting homosexuality.

Andrew Moffat MBE, assistant headteacher at Parkfield Community School in Saltley, has been criticised by parents for piloting No Outsiders - a programme run alongside sex and relationship education (SRE) lessons.

Its ethos promotes LGBT equality and challenges homophobia in primary schools.

Books now being read by pupils at Parkfield Community School include Mommy, Mama and Me and King & King - stories about same-sex relationships and marriages.

But Mr Moffat and the No Outsiders programme have come under fire from some Muslim parents who condemn such teachings, as homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Islam.

Mr Moffat, who is openly gay, and the school have defended the programme, which they said had been fully explained to parents. They added: "No Outsiders allows us to raise awareness of these differences so that children are able to tolerate and accept differences in our society."

But outraged mum Fatima Shah, who has taken her 10-year-old daughter out of the school, told BirminghamLive: "It's inappropriate, totally wrong.

"Children are being told it's OK to be gay yet 98 per cent of children at this school are Muslim. It's a Muslim community.

"I've taken my daughter out and other parents have too. Enough is enough.

"Sex relationship education is being taught without our consent. We've not been informed about what's being taught.

"Mr Moffat is running what's called CHIPS - challenging homophobia in primary schools - and it's totally against Islamic beliefs.

"My child came home and told me am I OK to be a boy? It's confusing children about sexuality.

"I want my child to learn about English, maths and science.

"I'm keeping my daughter away from the school until something is done. I've been paying £20-an-hour tuition at home instead."

And while Ms Shah is against LGBT equality being taught at Parkfield, the 29-year-old insists "gay people should be treated with mutual respect".

Speaking alongside other Muslim parents outside the school gates, the mum-of-three added: "We believe in fundamental British values and believe gay people should be treated with mutual respect and without prejudice or discrimination just like any other human being.

"We respect the Equality Act and believe it can be implemented without the promotion of homosexuality.

"Children have a naive and innocent picture of sexual relationships.

"At this age it is inappropriate to teach them what is a gay or straight relationship.

"The school knew the local community and parents have a different set of family values and morals, and were opposed to an LGBT agenda that says being gay is OK.

"Our community ethos was not respected. We feel betrayed by the school."

Others who spoke to BirminghamLive outside Parkfield Community School included mum-of-two Mariam Ahmed.

The 34-year-old, who has helped organise a petition calling for change, said: "No Outsiders is not for our community. We have a different ethos.

"Mr Moffat is over-promoting LGBT movements.

"I have nothing against him and I fully respect his beliefs but this should be stopped being taught in schools. It's not necessary. It's confusing children.

"My little girl is four, she's in reception and she came home asking me if it's OK to be a boy instead of a girl and has dressed up in her brother's clothes. She's four years old."

Mohammed Sakib, aged 37, who has children aged eight, nine and 10 at Parkfield Community School, added: "I respect all religions but why should sexuality be taught to primary school-aged children? It's out of control.

"[Mr Moffat] seems a friendly and good-natured guy but he needs to respect us as Muslim parents. He needs to listen."

Another mum, who has children aged seven and 11 at Parkfield Community School, added: "Why does my seven-year-old girl need to be taught about same-sex marriages and homosexuality?

"She should be playing, having fun and should be learning about English and maths. This curriculum is putting ideas into their heads."

Another added: "There's no need. This place is different, it's a 90 per cent Muslim school.

"There's books on the curriculum like Mommy, Mama and Me which promotes same-sex marriage and being lesbian. Just why is this needed?"

In 2014, assistant headteacher Mr Moffat resigned from Chilwell Croft Academy in Newtown following a backlash from parents after coming out during a school assembly.

"It seemed like the right time to let the children know that they knew a gay person," he said previously.

"Following my coming out, some parents from different communities complained to the school, but I maintain that my decision was the right one at that time.

"Some Christian and some Muslim parents have told me they don’t want their children learning that it’s OK to be gay."

The school teacher has been at Parkfield Community School for four years. In 2016, the 740-pupil school was deemed outstanding across the board by Ofsted and, a year later, Mr Moffat was awarded an MBE for services to equality and diversity in education.The report said: "This is an inclusive school that celebrates diversity. As a result, pupils demonstrate respect for an individual’s age, disability, gender or gender reassignment, sexuality, race, religion or belief."

In a joint statement outlining concerns by parents, Mr Moffat and Hazel Pulley, CEO of Excelsior Multi Academy Trust, said Parkfield Community School "have no plans to change their curriculum and No Outsiders remains an integral part of the drive for excellence".

In a response to BirminghamLive, the school said: "The No Outsiders programme teaches children that everyone is welcome.

"It was created in 2014 by Andrew Moffat, assistant head at Parkfield Community School, and piloted at the school.

"The aim was to find a way to teach children about the Equality Act 2010, developing an understanding of British values through an inclusive curriculum and school ethos.
