Teaching assistant wins a legal case after being fired for street preaching

In March 2022, Andy Nix, aged 65, was called to the headteacher's office from Temple Moor High School (UK) and interrogated about his street preaching in the summer of 2021.


This happened after some students complained that his street preaching made them feel “unsafe”. He was fired on the spot and had to leave the school premises immediately.

Supported by the Christian Legal Centre (CLC), Mr Nix took legal action against the school claiming harassment, discrimination and a breach of his right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion under Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR).

The school decided to settle the case and pay him £7,000 (around 8,000 USD) in compensation instead of going to trial.
