Today’s heavyweight UK daily newspapers give a preview of a speech to be given by Amanda Spielman, head of Ofsted, at a Church of England schools conference. According to the news articles,
Religious extremists are “perverting” education by using schools to narrow children’s horizons and cut them off from wider society, the head of Ofsted is warning.
Since starting the job as Ofsted’s chief inspector a year ago, Ms Spielman, 56, has made tackling religious extremism one of her main goals. Her speech is her most outspoken attack yet on religious communities who seek to limit the education and opportunities of youngsters in the name of faith.
“Ofsted inspectors are increasingly brought into contact with those who want to actively pervert the purpose of education. Under the pretext of religious belief, they use education institutions, legal and illegal, to narrow young people’s horizons, to isolate and segregate,
in our schools it is our responsibility to tackle those who actively undermine fundamental British values or equalities law.
