Unisex toilets anger parents
Newly installed unisex toilets at the Little Lever School in Bolton, Greater Manchester have angered parents and led to a Facebook campaign against the facilities.
The headmaster of the academy has responded by posting pictures of the new toilets, pointing out that all cubicles have “male” and “female” signs in an attempt to calm parents. He said the block near the school canteen was only introduced to help pupils get food and take a comfort break within a new 30 minute time-frame for lunchtime sittings.
However, local UKIP councillor Sean Hornby said: “Many parents and children are not happy with this situation and has been a very poor PR exercise by the school and on this occasion I believe the school need to learn lessons not the pupils. This needs reversing and reversing now. Of the all issues that I have dealt with as an elected member, I have never had so many messages about an issue. I think the school should have told parents about this and they should reverse their decision.”
