Two new single-sex Muslim faith schools earmarked for Manchester – despite politicians thinking it’s a really bad idea
Manchester council and MPs objected to the academy scheme saying it is ‘completely wrong’ for the city. But the government has given it the nod, and now it just needs planning permission.
Two new single-sex Muslim faith schools have been earmarked for land in Cheetham Hill despite concerns among council chiefs and MPs.
The secondaries – which would sit side-by-side on land near the Irish centre, off Rayburn Road – would be run by the Blackburn-based Tauheedul Trust, which has more than 25 academies across the north of England, the Midlands and London.
Each school, one for boys and one for girls, would take up to 800 children, including a sixth form at both, in a move the trust says will help meet a forecast 849-place shortfall in the area’s schools.
They have already been operating, since last September, in temporary accommodation in the grounds of nearby St Chad’s primary.
Plans for the permanent development will be considered by the council next week and are marked for approval.
he proposal has been controversial, however, due to the separation of boys and girls in a state-funded school.
When Tauheedul first applied to create the schools in 2016 – through a submission to the Department for Education – both Manchester council and local MPs, including education select committee member Lucy Powell, objected on the grounds that single-sex education would only make the city’s school place shortage worse.
At the time Ms Powell called it the ‘completely wrong’ fit for Manchester, adding that ‘the fact so many people were against it’ locally showed up failures in the government’s education policy.
Ahead of next week’s planning committee Graham Stringer, MP for Blackley and Broughton – which includes Cheetham Hill – has also criticised the proposal.
“This doesn’t fit in with the current philosophy and priorities of Manchester schools,” he said.
MUSLIM MIGRANTS WANT THEIR CAKE AND TO EAT IT AT SAME TIME.
MOST ARE ECONOMIC MIGRANTS AND SAUDI WAS MUCH CLOSER TO THEIR LAND OF ORIGIN.
SO WHY NOT LIVE IN SAUDI YET THEY HEAD FOR UK AND THEN DEMAND SHARIA LAWS AND HALAL AND FGM AND COUSIN MARRAIGE ETC
THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR BRITISH CULTURE OR HISTORY AND LIVE IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES AND DRIVE WHITE PEOPEL OUT. THEY WILL OUT BREED THE ENGLISH AND DESTROY OUR CULTURE – IRONICALLY THEY COME FOR OUR WELFARE AND FREE NHS BUT THESE WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO MAINTAIN AS POPULATION SIZE BOOMS.
THEY ONLY COME TO US FOR OUR FREE NHS, WELFARE, CHILD BENEFITS AND THEY GET FREE SOCIAL HOUSING OFTEN IN MOST EXPENSIVE PART OF LONDONISTAN.
WE ALREADY HAVE SHARIA PATROL IN TOWER HAMLETS AND POLICE TURN A BLIND EYE. WE HAVE MASS GROOMING OF WHITE GIRLS BY MUSLIM MEN. IF WHITE MEN WHERE DOING THIS TO YOUNG MUSLIM GIRLS THERE WOULD BE RIOTS.
