Council acts over parents protest
  
Action has been taken against parents who took their children out of school in protest at them being taught about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history, a council said.
 
Dozens of parents kept their children out of lessons at George Tomlinson primary school in Leytonstone, east London, saying their children were too young to learn about such matters.
 
A spokesman for Waltham Forest Council said the absences would be treated as "unauthorised" and action had been taken, but refused to say what sanctions were put in place.
 
"As part of the borough's policy of promoting tolerance in our schools, children are taught that everyone in our society is of equal value," the spokesman said.
 
"At George Tomlinson, parents were invited to meet with teachers and governors several weeks ago to discuss what work would be taking place throughout the national LGBT History Month, and how this work would be delivered.
 
"Regrettably, some parents chose to remove their children from school. We are not aware of pupils being withdrawn from any other school in the borough.
 
"The council does not condone any unauthorised absence from school and action has been taken."
 
Pervez Latif, whose children Saleh, 10, and Abdur-Rahim, nine, attend the school, said he wrote to the chairman of governors to explain why he was taking his children out of the classes and was told that he had no options.
 
"I didn't want my children to be learning about this," Mr Latif, 41, told the Daily Mail.
 
"I found it difficult to explain topics such as homosexual relationships at such a young age. If I am faced with court action, then I will just explain that these are my views."
