After a parents' group complained about a Christian charity's "fundamentalist approach" in discussions of sin, St. John's Church of England Primary School in Tunbridge Wells agreed to block CrossTeach from running assemblies or giving lessons. The campaign also demands the removal of crosses, Bibles and clergy from Church of England school assemblies.

According to Christian Today, a 13-page briefing document circulated by concerned parents to raise support includes criticism of a 'large cross' at a worship area in the school.
