No Outsiders programme

The No Outsiders programme aims to teach children about the characteristics protected by the Equality Act - such as sexual orientation and religion. Books used in programme include stories about a dog that doesn't feel like it fits in, two male penguins that raise a chick together and a boy who likes to dress up like a mermaid. But some parents at Parkfield Community School in Birmingham say lessons featuring books depicting same-sex relationships are not age-appropriate and the lessons have currently been put on hold.
