Protests at Parkfield Community School
Parents have gathered outside Parkfield Community School exercising their right to protest peacefully on a number of occasions.
Officers have been working closely with the school, the local community and the parents to facilitate the protests, and prevent a breach of the peace.
No formal complaints have been made to West Midlands Police by Parkfield Community School, or any of the staff who teach there.
A school governor contacted police after homophobic graffiti was daubed onto the school premises during half term. This matter is currently under investigation.
As a force we remain wholly committed to tackling all forms of hate crime, as such behaviour is completely unacceptable within our many diverse and multi-cultural communities.
Video footage circulated on social media is being reviewed to establish whether any additional offences have taken place.
