The school I teach at is truly multicultural - there are kids from every nation you could name, speaking a variety of different languages and subscribing to a number of faiths. It all works, everything goes along nicely and it is beautiful how much tolerance there is of one another. Apart from in my form. I have a bunch of boys who are trying to out-do each other on just how Islamic they are - a couple are actually quite mature in this, they will turn up on non-uniform days in their cultural dress, read religious texts during silent reading and will happily discuss their faith and why they believe it in an intelligent way. But some are starting to get nasty. They have told girls they deserved to be raped if they wear skirts or show their hair, they randomly shout out prayers in Arabic during lessons, been horrible to female teachers, claim anyone talking about a different faith or something which is against Islam are going to hell. Talking about certain parts of the PHSCE or Science curriculum result in shouts of how it is offensive to Allah and Muslims .They also use a wide variety of racist language both behind people's backs and to their face. I report each incident I notice, and checked the system and found out it's happening in other lessons and people are reporting it to the SMT. We are not supposed to sanction for equal opps as a deputy head has to deal with it but the only actions they do seem to be a chat with one of the male Muslim teachers - but some of these kids have done the same thing over and over and still get no punishment. After one offensive incident one of the boys was being spoken to by the deputy head and even started shouting back how the girls would be stoned in some countries and he agreed with this. And the deputy head backed down. Head of Year agrees with me that we need to do something, but says SMT are reluctant because they are worried about it inflaming tensions. I am fed up of having to comfort people in my form who have been on the receiving end of some nasty verbal abuse, getting phone calls from concerned parents and not being able to do anything because racism has to be dealt with by SMT - but they are not doing it. Most of the form are fine, it is just about 6 boys in there who have started to become like this, and they are egging each other on. I am terrified because at the moment they are acting like silly little boys, but I feel that this could get much, much worse. I don't know whether it would be a mistake to put all the boys who I think are involved on report - because it is going to look a lot like I've put most of my Muslim boys on report but I want a record of who is doing what so we can do something about this before it gets scary. Has anyone any idea what to do? I've been emailing my concerns, asked for help inside the school and asked if the worst could get involved with an outside agency (but again, spending money on this is seen as potentially inflammatory), been putting kids who shout out in detention for disrupting my lesson and recording the racism for a deputy head to deal with. It's my first year of having a form and I need some advice or fresh ideas. It's not forthcoming from the school, apart from the HoY who can't think of anything else .
