Ofsted Findings on Trojan Horse Schools

The main findings outlined in Ofsted’s advice note to Michael Gove are:

  • A culture of fear and intimidation has developed in some of the schools since their previous inspection. Some headteachers, including those with a proud record of raising standards, said that they have been marginalised or forced out of their jobs. As a result, some schools previously judged to be good or outstanding have experienced high levels of staff turbulence, low staff morale and a rapid decline in their overall effectiveness.
  • Some headteachers reported that there has been an organised campaign to target certain schools in Birmingham in order to alter their character and ethos.
  • The evidence shows that governors have recently exerted inappropriate influence on policy and the day-to-day running of several schools in Birmingham. In other schools, leaders have struggled to resist attempts by governing bodies to use their powers to change the school in line with governors’ personal views.
  • Birmingham City Council has failed to support a number of schools in their efforts to keep pupils safe from the potential risks of radicalisation and extremism. It has not dealt adequately with complaints from headteachers about the conduct of governors.
  • Her Majesty’s Inspectors identified breaches of funding agreements in a number of academies.
  • In several of the schools inspected, children are being badly prepared for life in modern Britain.

      They (Islamists ) are more motivated than us, have an clearer idea of where they want society to be and are outbreeding us! Unless we wake up to this threat rather quickly it will be too late to resolve the matter without first having real internal conflict. Unless we do wake up in fifty to one hundred years time we will be ruled by Sharia law (as will Europe). No more Church bells (Christianity),no more Socialism, no more Western Culture, no more Liberty…. Think Iran and you will get the picture of where we will be! Me I intend to struggle democratically and correctly till the end. Fuck Them!!!!

        Always bear in mind, Muslims did not force themselves into Britain. The Brits (especially the English) would rather loose their national identity than be see as a Nationalist by apposing mass immigration. We are now getting what we deserve. Still voting LibLabCon?

      Powell was a nightmare, but only for those who refused to acknowledge the true potential for internal strife and Civil War.

      There is no excuse for that, he articulated a possible future, it was not certain to come about, but I think he thought it could do so because of this nations laid back approach to ‘other people’.

      He pronounced the words that others couldn’t assemble cohesively.

      I think he knew that no matter which way he presented these home truths he would be cast into isolation and ridicule.

      He was a brave man, I think he took the harder path and spoke clearly and was, as I think he knew would happen, treated as a pariah.

      It was his intellectual clarity that made his decision to be stark and speak the truth and I think he was a great man as a result.

      Part of our nations ‘attributes’ is to be ‘wary’ of an intellectual as much as it’s tolerant of the peoples of other walks of life whilst remaining wary.

      Today any ‘wariness’ or ‘concern’ (the very fabric allows our tolerant nature) is cast as ‘raaaacism’ by the stupid and pathetic.

      That is how Powell’s forecast will come true, if we lose the ability to show open wariness and concern you lose tolerance, it is an absolute truth.

      Wariness is an important survival technique, lose it and you don’t deserve to survive.

      From the ‘Rubber Necker’ who sees blood and guts all over a motorway and thinks that perhaps he might drive a little more carefully as a result to the guy who is wary of a group of men who speak in a language you don’t understand moving next door and may be up to ‘no good’ our very unique English ’cause for concern’ attitude is what distinguishes us from every other nation on Earth.

      It’s not PC, but it is the root of our psyche, I celebrate it, and I’ll be f’cked if I will subvert it for anyone.

      I liked Powell, honesty on his scale is almost holy to behold.

    Unfortunately for them ITV broke the news and the BBC has played catch up ever since being implicated in even more cans of worms.
    I’m sure that wasn’t their intention at all.
    However their strategy of diversion has worked overall as we see headlines about alleged celebrity child abusers(most are proved innocent) every day but none about Islamic r*pe gangs.

    The solution to this presumed quandary couldn’t be simpler. Just like the mental capacities of the protagonists involved. Politicians and pedants may protest that they, and they alone, are peddling perfect truth. So why would they not invite the pre-corrupted young to sit at the feet of such wise(ass) elders, and pose queries they want resolved? Only juvenile adults, who have no testable answers, desire one-way conditioning in preference to two-way communication. Since sooner rather than later, an innocent would raise the paradox: If you possess an infallible method for verifying your own notions, which your deluded detractors are denied. Why would you not share that autocorrecting methodology with them, and thus end self-deception for good? Simples(tons)!

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
