A Christian was asked to step down from his role on a school governing body after leading an Easter assembly where parents subsequently complained about the Christian content of what was said.

Nigel Hoad had previously spoken at the new non-faith school’s Christmas Fayre. The invitation from the school to speak at the Easter assembly was warmly received. He had been asked to speak about the real meaning of Easter, not about Easter bunnies or chocolate eggs, to children aged 4 to 7. Around 50 parents also attended the assembly.
