The teacher in question at Batley Grammar School is reportedly under police protection and has been suspended by or the “completely inappropriate” act in a Religious Studies lesson.

On Thursday, protesters gathered outside the school to demand the teacher is sacked and this morning have once again arrived for another protest.

Batley Grammar School has confirmed that the teacher involved has been suspended pending an investigation.

The school’s headteacher Gary Kibble has apologised for the “inappropriate” resource used in the lesson.

In an email to parents, he said: “The school would like to thank the parents who contacted us on March 22 highlighting concerns with a resource used in an RS lesson that day.

“Upon investigation, it was clear that the resource used in the lesson was completely inappropriate and had the capacity to cause great offence to members of our school community for which we would like to offer a sincere and full apology.”

A group of around 35 protesters are currently outside the school’s gates.

Police liaison officers have also arrived on the scene in a bid to keep the peace.

There are also reports the school has switched to remote learning for its pupils today, although this is yet to be officially confirmed by the school.
