Under Amanda Spielman the taxpayer funded Office for Standards in Education is now the Office for Standards in Religion: Inspectors to question primary school girls who wear hijab 'School inspectors in England have been told to question Muslim primary school girls if they are wearing a hijab or similar headscarf, the head of Ofsted has announced. Amanda Spielman, the head of Ofsted and chief inspector of schools, said the move was to tackle situations in which wearing a hijab “could be interpreted as sexualisation” of girls as young as four or five, when most Islamic teaching requires headdress for girls only at the onset of puberty. The announcement – in the form of a recommendation to Ofsted inspectors rather than an update to the inspectorate’s official handbook – follows a meeting last week between Spielman and campaigners against the hijab in schools, including Amina Lone, co-director of the Social Action and Research Foundation.' TheGuardian.com, 19th September 2017. Whatever you think of Islam and the way that Muslims choose to dress, if you have any Muslim pupils who wear hijab in your school then Ofsted just found another unjust way to mark you down, presumably hoping that you will pressurise your pupils and their parents to change their dress and behaviour. If you care about these students, your relationship with your parents, don't wish your school to be splashed across the papers as the next "Trojan horse" and if you believe this move to be coercive then I recommend you write to Spielman and make your displeasure known: firstname.lastname@example.org @amanda_spielman @ofstednews This follows a push from deselected Labour councillor and failed Labour parliamentary candidate Amina Lone to get publicity for her campaigning group, Social Action & Research Foundation. One of SARF's stated aims is "to address the stigmatisation of marginalised communities". It's unclear how government interrogation of Primary aged Muslim schoolgirls and institutional pressurisation of their parents & teachers will achieve this. The opposite is to be expected.
