A meeting with governor Joyce Sanderson and Father Chris Findlay, priest at the church associated with the new free faith school in Cornwall, has resulted in the grandfather of a student asking some rather uncomfortable questions.
The grandfather had concern that - "The whole population is taught that homosexuality is fine and children should accept they can have two mums or dads but they should not be taught that nonsense. It is not right... The morals of this country should not be dragged down.".
Governor Sanderson said that - "Gays would be welcome to this school, but we would not encourage it. We lay down what you should try to follow but how people follow it is their business."
Locally supporters argue there's a need for St Michael's Catholic free school as a place to teach moral values.
