Anti-vaxxers have begun targeting children, with Pierce Corbyn shouting at London students to intimidate them, while a separate mob stormed a school in Kent.

In separate embarrassing scenes, a group of protesters appeared outside the Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School in Canterbury after the government announced it would begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to children aged 12 to 15.

The notorious conspiracy theorist and his associates were seen yesterday shouting at students and trying to hand leaflets to them.

Guidance has been issued to head teachers to contact the police if they feel protests may take place as the program will be largely distributed through schools.

Protesters had already demonstrated outside the school gate earlier this month when they were seen distributing literature to students.

Two days later, an AB school in Faversham was targeted, with police called after a woman was allegedly assaulted.

They have now returned to the Langton Girls, displaying placards from across the street for students to read when they arrive.

So far in the UK, 135, 252 people have lost their lives to Kovid-19 and 7,465,448 have been infected.

After initial protests, school headteacher Paul Pollard circulated a letter to parents accusing the group of ‘involving propaganda, which has much to do with familiar far-right tropes.

It read: ‘Following the recent events outside the school, where an anti-vaccination group held a small protest, and with the announcement raising the possibility that this could happen again, I am fully informed about the situation. Kindly want to ensure clarity and contrast between protested and argued.

‘The group that protested outside the school was not involved in the science-led debate on whether or not to vaccinate 12 to 15-year-olds.

“Instead, they engaged in conspiracy theories, propaganda, and many other propaganda that have much in common with familiar far-right tropes.

‘While their protest outside the school was peaceful, and very few students accepted the leaflets, these types of groups are working to spread fear and misinformation, not engaging in discussion or debate.’

The government has advised children in the age group of 12 to 15 years to take a single dose of the Kovid vaccine.

Parental consent is not required if the child is considered competent to make decisions on his own.

But according to England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty, ‘in the vast majority of cases, children and their parents come to the same decision’.

Last week, the UK Health Protection Agency (UKHSA) said it was aware that some schools had received campaign letters and emails with ‘misinformation’ about the vaccine programme.

The agency’s guidance states: ‘In the event of a protest or disruptive activity outside a school, or if schools are aware that a protest is planned, they should be contacted by SAIS (School Age Immunization Service) providers, local authorities and the police. Contacts should be alerted for best discussion. The way to manage the situation.’

Employees have been advised not to ‘directly engage’ with campaigns containing misinformation about the vaccine.

Instead, ‘acknowledge the receipt of concerns’ and ‘see the latest scientific guidance on this issue’ if necessary.

Pollard said that although he had not been informed of the protest, the police would be called if they returned.

He continued: ‘We will do everything possible to discourage students from speaking up or accepting material from them.

‘As before, they will not enter the school site.

‘We would hereby welcome the support of parents and ask that you emphasize with your children that in the event of further protests, they should enter the school without taking any literature or engaging in conversation.’

The school headmaster has already been in contact with the Kent County Council Preventive Education Officer.

Containment is the government’s controversial strategy to combat extremist ideas and terrorism.

A document called The Anti-Vaxx Playbook, which circulates a number of common tropes and narratives, has been provided by the council and shared with parents.

Mr Pollard said: ‘As a school we continue to develop our approach to all areas of safety,’ Mr Pollard said.

‘This academic year we will work full staff training around extremism and prevention strategies, with a focus on relevant threats to our students.

‘We will also undertake an external review of our entire school’s safety practices, policies and procedures, something we will do regularly to ensure that all areas of safety are as robust as we expect them to be.’
