Natasha Thoday was asked to leave Telscombe Cliffs County Primary School not because of her sexual orientation but because her attendance disrupted the children's education and presented them with issues way ahead of their mental capabilities.
All children will and should learn about sexuality but we must remember Telscombe Cliffs is a primary school.
