Christian schools that still dare to actually teach anything slightly resembling Christianity are being attacked under the government’s new plan to promote ‘British values.’
These values do not include things like an Englishman’s castle is his home or marriage being for life, instead the Orwellian term is just shorthand for brutally enforced politically correct brainwashing.
Christian schools are being particularly singled out for their promotion of marriage and refusal to teach children that Islam is just as British as Christianity.
Bizarrely, the reason given for enforcing ‘British values’ is that it will prevent Muslims from taking schools over and radicalizing the pupils. This comes after they were caught doing just that recently in the North of England.
So, instead of the Muslims secretly pushing all the White teachers out and replacing them with Muslims, now they can just walk straight in and indoctrinate them under the guise of ‘British values.’
One particularly successful Christian school has even been targeted by the PC inspectors for closure, after they refused to invite Muslims in to run their assemblies and teach Islam instead of Christianity.
The small independent school in the Home Counties was told it is in breach of new rules intended to promote “British values” such as individual liberty and tolerance in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal, involving infiltration by hard-line Muslim groups in Birmingham.
It follows complaints from orthodox Jewish schools about recent inspections in which girls from strict traditional backgrounds were allegedly asked whether they were being taught enough about lesbianism, whether they had boyfriends and if they knew where babies came from.
In the latest case inspectors are understood to have warned the head that the school, which was previously rated as “good” that it would be downgraded to “adequate” for failing to meet standards requiring it to “actively promote” harmony between different faiths because it had failed to bring in representatives from other religions.
They warned that unless the school could demonstrate how it was going to meet the new requirements there would be a further full inspection which could ultimately lead to it being closed.
A Government consultation paper published in June, explaining the new rules, makes clear that even taking children on trips to different places of worship would not be enough to be judged compliant.
The Institute, which is already planning a legal challenge to the consultation, arguing that it was rushed through during the school holidays, fears that the new guidelines could be used to clamp down on the teaching of anything deemed politically incorrect on issues such as marriage.
“Worryingly, evidence is already emerging of how the new regulations are requiring Ofsted inspection teams to behave in ways which do not respect the religious ethos of faith schools,” Simon Calvert, deputy director of the Christian Institute, told Mrs Morgan.
“The new requirements are infringing the rights of children, parents, teachers and schools to hold and practise their religious beliefs.”
Listing recent cases involving criticism of Anglican, Roman Catholic and Jewish schools by Ofsted, he added: “The Christian Institute is currently working with an independent Christian School which has been marked down by Ofsted for not promoting other faiths.
“Astonishingly it was told it should invite representatives of other faith groups to lead assemblies and lessons, such as an Imam.
“The wording of the regulations inevitably results in these kind of outcomes.
“While we obviously support attempts to address the problem of radicalisation, the current regulations fail to do this.”
