Parents left furious as primary school BANS pupils using the terms ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’

Woke culture strikes again! And it’s innocent children who are being bombarded with it.

The everyday term has been replaced with “grown-ups” in a bid to avoid discriminating against so-called “non-traditional” families. According to parents from the four primary schools affected by the change in terminology, children have now been left confused over the move.

St Luke’s Primary School in Brighton states on its website: “We have an Equalities Language Code for staff, for example, to value all families we never refer to mums and dads and instead talk about grown-ups.”

Elm Grove Primary School maintains in its Equalities Statement: “We try to talk about our grown-ups rather than our mums and dads to acknowledge the different family groupings our pupils live in.”

The same guidance has been implemented into Carlton Hill Primary School.

In a statement, it echoed the worlds of Elm Grove.

One parent vented their frustration at the move.

They said: “It’s very confusing for us adults, never mind the kids.

“They just don’t understand why the teachers can’t call their mums or dads, mum or dad?”

Speaking to the Mail, the parent added: “I know the schools are trying to take into account the different kinds of families pupils may come from, but the majority have a mum or dad, regardless of if they are together or not.

“So why can’t staff just keep it simple for the kids and call their parents what they are; mum or dad?”

Another said: “In trying to be more inclusive, the schools are forgetting about mum and dad, the most important people in a kid’s life.

“This is just madness, where will it stop?”
