Parents at Lostwithiel school in Cornwall have said they are not willing to allow the 10 pupils, aged seven to 11, to go to the masjid in Exeter. The school said the parents had “raised concerns about safety due to the activities of terrorist groups such as Isis”.
As part of the school’s religious education, 91 pupils were due to take the 68-mile trip to visit Exeter cathedral and the masjid on Thursday.
However, an unnamed parent among those who have withdrawn their children from the trip said they had been worried because of the “horrific events that occur every day”.
