The PCC's latest statement in regards to the protests taking place at a small number of primary schools: 

 

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson, said: In light of the escalating protests, I support the school's difficult decision to close early on Friday.

"These protests are having a major impact on children and staff and need to stop.

"Teachers should be free to get on with teaching a full curriculum, that highlights and explains Britain's full diversity, without fear of protests or threats.

"All forms of equality are equally important."
