High Peak school scraps LGBTQ ‘Drag ’n’ Rainbows’ themed non-uniform day after backlash from parents – but some are still unhappy

New Mills School had invited students to dress in something colourful or with rainbows on Friday June, 16.

The non-uniform day was dubbed ‘Drag ‘n’ Rainbows’ and would have featured Sab Samuel, better known as Aida H Dee, who runs Drag Queen Story.

However following a backlash from parents the school has now cancelled the event.

Heather Watts, head teacher for New Mills School said: “As a school we want to support all our pupils and were happy to support our student LGBT group to organise the event planned for Friday, June, 16.

“Although we support diversity, I have to consider the well-being of all our pupils and with a large number of students taking their exams I have to consider the potential impact of any distractions.

“I know that many of our pupils, staff and parents may be disappointed by this decision. I will be in discussion with our pupils, parents and staff, to seek their views on what alternative events we could organise in the future to celebrate Pride.”
