Last month more than hundreds of Protestors gathered outside the Anderton Park Primary School in Birmingham to protest against the teaching of LGBT relationships to the notable young students of the school. Many of the parents gathered outside the premises of the school gate increasingly concerned about the fact that their children were too young to learn about the LGBT relationships.
Quashing an original injunction, the judge of the High Court, Mr. Justice Warby QC said that the protests over the teachings of the LGBT relationships in the schools, probably reached a stage of harassment with a distressing and alarming conduct. He said that some of the protestants had probably gone beyond the lawful limits.
Although the trial is still scheduled to take place on whether the protests can take place outside the school premises or not, the initial temporary injunctions were imposed to restrict the protests from taking place directly outside the school.
The Head teacher of Anderton Park School, Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson, said that she was happy with the latest judgment as the new injunction was widened further to include any type of protests.
The original trial is expected to take place towards the end of July and the last two to three days.
We are absolutely delighted with the judge’s decisions today. The injunction is widened to include any protests, not just about the teaching of equalities. Children, staff, parents & visitors can leave school safely & calmly. Thank you to everyone for all your support.

The protests have been taking place since the last month and it has been taking place for weeks. Parents say that they are concerned over the lessons being taught to their children as they are not age appropriate and also contradicted with Islam.
