The school had to cancel JK Rowling’s pupil name because it was not diverse enough. This prompted outrage from parents who accused them of punishing their ‘thoughtcrimes.

Holy Trinity Church of England Primary school in Richmond had previously featured Sir David Attenborough, Emmeline Pantkhurst, and World War II icon the Harry Potter author.

However, it stated that they were ‘pleased’ to replace Churchill with Rowling.

Alison Bateman is the school’s headteacher. The announcement was made in Black History Month, October.

School meals campaigner Rashford, Crimean War Lifesaver Seacole and school meals advocate Rashford are certainly worthy of recognition. However, some parents believe that Rowling and Churchill were controversial and the school cancelled them.

Churchill – voted the Greatest ever Briton in previous national polls – has recently been accused of racism over his alleged inaction in the 1943 Bengal Famine in India and views on Indian independence.

Rowling has been accused of transphobia after commenting on an online article about ‘people who menstruate’, questioning why they were not just called ‘women’.

One parent told MailOnline:  ‘A lot of us are quite shocked that the school authorities have decided that the contributions of Churchill and Rowling deserve to be erased from the records without so much as a consultation with parents.

‘Presumably this has happened party due to the supposed thoughtcrimes committed by these two national figures. For context, the other two – unchanged – house names are ‘Pankhurst’ and ‘Attenborough’.

‘I am not alone in feeling appalled that this cowardly action has been taken.’

Winston Churchill, who led Britain through World War II, has fallen out of favour at the school

Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School in Richmond made the changes in October

In October, Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School Richmond underwent the same changes

The school – which caters for young children aged three to 11 – claims pupils had asked for the house names to be more diverse.

Its Junior Leadership Team members then created a list to replace the names, which was then used by the children for voting.

This school is part of the Diocese Southwark and announced the change in a recent newsletter.

According to it, “The school children have wanted to change the names of some school houses in order to be more diverse.”

“The JLT made a list and all the children participated in the voting.

“We are happy to announce name changes during Black History Month. Churchill’s position has been taken over by Rashford, Rowling and Seacole.

MailOnline reached out the school asking why Rowling was chosen for replacement, and who made it happen.

Also, it was asked whether other names had been added to the shortlist or if they were consulted by the Diocese.

Ms Bateman is the head teacher. She said, “The change of the name of our school was something that our children discussed last year. They didn’t think the names represented the diversity of our school.”

The children were able to vote for their new names and there was much discussion before they voted. 

Harry Potter creator and author JK Rowling has also had her name replaced at the school

JK Rowling, Harry Potter author and creator, has had her name changed at the school.

Rowling has been replaced as a house name by nurse and race relations icon Mary Seacole

Mary Seacole:  the nurse now seen as a ‘secular saint’

Mary Seacole has been referred to as Britain’s greatest black woman, someone who helped more people in nursing (and race relations) than anyone else.

According to legend, she saved the lives of many wounded soldiers on the Crimean battlefields. She also nursed them in her clinic, which she funded out of her own pockets.

Some historians complain that her fame is almost equal to that of Florence Nightingale, a nursing heroine.

Seacole’s life story, which ended in 1881 after she died, was often forgotten. However, over the last 15 years her achievements and reputation have been remarkable.

Each schoolchild learns about her accomplishments. She is part of the National Curriculum. Many consider her a secular saint.

Many schools, hospitals, universities and other institutions have named rooms after her. Soon, she will be the most honored: a bronze statue of 8ft height was built in her honor on the grounds of St Thomas’s Hospital facing the Houses of parliament.

“It is very important for us to reflect the needs of our students and their families. Not only in their learning but also in their environment. We believe it is vital that the voices of children are heard. This is why we supported them choosing to name their houses after diversity, equality and the surrounding environment.

“We are supported by our parents. Some of them have challenged us about our lack of diversity. Our Governors as well as the Diocese Southwark have their full support.

Rowling and Churchill were victims of cancelculture in various organisations over the years.

In September Downing Street condemned the ‘absurd airbrushing’ of Sir Winston’s full name from the charity set up in his memory and urged its bosses to reverse the decision also branded ‘ridiculous’ and ‘re-writing history’.

Winston Churchill Memorial Trust deleted photos of the wartime leader’s from its website, and now it is called the Churchill Fellowship.

The website also featured a statement calling wartime PM’s view on race “unacceptable today,” a position that it shares. 

Trust members who are loyal to the cause said that it is’rewriting History’. They pointed out that former Prime Minister Tony Blair has been repeatedly voted Britain’s greatest Briton.

One person said, “It’s unbelievable that the man who saved us in our darkest hour is now cancelled.” 

It was yesterday announced that Harry Potter’s cast and crew were going to reunite without JK Rowling.

HBO Max said Tuesday that it will bring together all the actors from Harry Potter’s films in a special retrospective entitled Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return To Hogwarts. 

The release said it would feature stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – who have not made a public appearance together since the premiere of the last premiere of the franchise, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2, in July 2011, as well as filmmaker Chris Columbus, who directed the blockbuster film. 

But the release does not mention the person responsible for the creation of the characters, author JK Rowling, who has been criticised for her views on transgender people.

After claiming that menstruating can only be done by women, she was accused of transphobia.
