Rachel Booth has worked at Moor Nook Primary School, in Preston for four years.
A primary school dinner lady who attended a march co-organised by former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson has been suspended.
In a letter to the school, Mohammed Fyaz, one of the march’s organisers, wrote “the event in question was not organised by or linked to the EDL in any way”.
It is understood a suspension in such circumstances is a “neutral” act and will allow the school to investigate footage from the march featuring Mrs Booth.
Thousands of people attended the march by a coalition that calls itself UK Against Hate, held three weeks after a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert.
Mrs Booth, who has worked at the school for four years, said the suspension was “a big shock”..
