Andrew Moffat is an Assistant Head at Parkfield Community School, and author of, “No Outsiders in our school: Teaching the Equality Act in Primary Schools”. In 2014 Andrew resigned from a school following a faith-based parental campaign against his sexuality. He then chose to work in a school which was 99% Muslim to find a way to engage faith communities with LGBT equality. Through the No Outsiders scheme, Parkfield children now confidently defend equality for all sections of the community alongside the Equality Act and British values. In May 2016 Ofsted awarded the school ‘Outstanding’ status and highlighted No Outsiders as a key strength.
