The No Outsiders equality programme, which encourages children to accept differences in religions, families and relationships, was suspended in March amid angry protests at the gates of Parkfield Community School in Birmingham.

Protesters stated the subject matter contradicted the Islamic faith and that primary-age children were too young to be aware of same-sex relationships.

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) previously said up to 70 schools in England had seen resistance from parents on relationships education.

The document, produced by the DfE, suggests councils could consider enforcement action if pupils are withdrawn from school because parents do not agree with what is being taught.

It also suggests if demonstrations are happening outside school gates, head teachers should consider liaising with police in case protesters are breaking the law.

They said they continued to feel unsupported as they tackled such a sensitive and emotive situation.

From September 2020, relationships education will be compulsory for all primary pupils.

“Some organisations are opposed to the introduction of these subjects, or to some of the expected content,” the leaked document said.

“Some organisations are opposed to the introduction of these subjects, or to some of the expected content,” the leaked document said.

This has been seen “most starkly” in Birmingham, it continued, where demonstrations were held outside Parkfield Community School before spreading to Anderton Park, where protesters continue to gather outside an exclusion zone each week.

A High Court hearing this month will rule whether demonstrations can resume directly outside the school.

The DfE recognised campaigners “do not distinguish” between individual schools’ equality teachings and next year’s compulsory relationships education.

It advised schools to consult with parents on their education programme, but added it was “right” that schools should reflect parents’ views.

The advice is aimed at “encouraging parents to talk to their school about concerns, rather than protest at the school gates”, the DFE said, and “will also help to consider options if protests do materialist”.
