Upsetting the parents

Parents at a Church of England primary school who complained about specific Christian teaching at the school alleging it was ‘extreme’, succeeded, in mid-October, in banning a Christian group who weren’t even responsible for the teaching they opposed.

The headteacher of St John’s Church of England primary school in Tunbridge Wells said Crossteach ‘do not deserve the tarnishing of their good name’. They had been working in the school for 16 years, but a small number of parents complained, forcing the head to reluctantly limit their involvement. They will continue to run an after-school club at the school. Schools consistently praise the organisation’s work.
