Picture shows the email Martha Armitage received from Tapton School regarding her artwork. See Ross Parry copy RPYBREAST : A school has refused to display a sixth former’s intimate artwork depicting a mother breastfeeding her child for fear it may offend Muslims during Ramadan. Tapton Secondary School in Sheffield, South Yorks., told 18-year-old Martha Armitage that her A-Level work would not be used in a room which is now being used as a prayer room for the duration of the religious period. But Martha has hit out at the decision because she is proud of her beautiful, intricate work, which took 15 hours to create, and she wants it to be shown.
