A MUM has organised daily protests outside a Worcester school after she claims her daughter was racially abused and the school failed to act.

Cassandra Kelly has been protesting outside Bishop Perowne School every morning for the past three days with placards that claim 'the school is racist'.

However, the Merriman’s Hill Road school says it believes her allegations are 'completely unfounded and unjustified.'

The Worcester mum of two said: “We are here because we will not be silenced. This school is racist. My daughter has been called a ‘p***’ and they don’t want to do anything about it.

“We are Jamaican for a start and we will not be silent when this school is institutionally racist.

“The headteacher refuses to meet with me to discuss my daughter being bullied, he has banned me from the school premises and refuses to engage with me at all.

“Black lives matter and I will be out here every day until this school acknowledges that they are part of the problem and my children can go to school and be safe and protected regardless of their skin colour.”

Ms Kelly was supported by five friends who came to the protest in front of the school gates on Thursday morning.

They held signs that read ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Bishop Perowne is racist.’

A spokeswoman for Bishop Perowne CE College said: “Bishop Perowne CE College is deeply concerned about this situation and believes all allegations are completely unfounded and unjustified.

“However, having taken legal advice, the school has begun an investigation into the parent’s concerns and the matter is now subject to its complaints procedure.

“The welfare and safety of all students is priority and the school is working with social care and is seeking the support of the police to secure the safety of our community; there is also a matter of alleged criminal damage that is still being investigated.

“Bishop Perowne creates a school environment where all children can achieve success, irrespective of their nationality or ethnic background, and it has a zero tolerance policy on any forms of discrimination.

“As this is ongoing, the school will not be making any further statement about this matter.”

A marked police car and two officers were also present at the protest.

Sergeant Jo Mayo-Evans said: “We were called to reports of anti-social behaviour on Merriman’s Hill, Worcester, at just before 8.30am this morning (Friday 27 November).

“A small protest was taking place and officers remained at the scene for a short while until the group dispersed.”
