School pupils at a primary school in Birmingham which is facing protests by parents have asked not to be ‘disturbed’ while being educated.

Anderton Park Primary School is one of the many schools in Birmingham which is facing protests by parents who are complaining that the school is teaching LGBTQ relationships.

Shakeel Afsar – the man leading the protest despite not having any children at the school – recently said that parents are being represented as being homophobic and claimed it’s not true despite the parents holding anti-LGBTQ banners.

Headteacher Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson has been slammed for using LGBTQ books and lessons at the school with many parents calling for her to be fired from the school.

Now, Hewitt-Clarkson took to Twitter to reveal a note that two of the children from her school wrote in response to the ongoing protests.

The letter reads: “We are unhappy because you are being rude to all of the students and teachers especially our headteacher.

"So please don't disturb us when we are trying to learn and don't lie to us. Thank you, APS."
