- Boys at Birmingham school 'not taught about how to put on condoms'
- Sex education 'only taught in context of marriage' at Park View Academy
- 'Morality Squad' school prefects 'tasked with spotting pupil relationships'
- 'Pro-Islam messages read over public address system in the playground'
Muslim girls at a ‘Trojan Horse’ school were told women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be ‘smited’ and go to hell, a disciplinary panel heard today.
Boys at Park View Academy in Alum Rock, Birmingham, were also allegedly deliberately not taught about how to put on condoms and sex education was only taught in the context of marriage.
School prefects, known as the ‘Morality Squad’, were tasked with spying on pupils and reporting boys and girls who showed signs of being in a relationship, according to the hearing.
Investigation: Boys at Park View Academy in Alum Rock, Birmingham, were allegedly deliberately not taught about how to put on condoms and sex education was only taught in the context of marriage
A whistleblower who taught at the school also claimed pro-Islam messages were read over a public address system in the playground, and leaflets preaching Islam ideology were widely distributed.
At the National College for Teaching and Leadership in Coventry, teachers Akheel Ahmed and Inamulhaq Anwar are accused of trying to force extreme Muslim teaching onto the school’s agenda.
The panel heard Ahmed, 41, and Anwar, 34, belonged to the ‘Park View Brotherhood’, which was part of a wider Trojan Horse plot to takeover schools by hardline Muslim groups.
They face allegations of unacceptable professional misconduct, which brought the teaching profession into disrepute
They are said to have agreed with others, on or before March 31 last year, to the inclusion of an undue amount of religious influence in the education of pupils.
Anwar was also governor at Nansen Primary School in Birmingham and faces the additional charge of trying to influence the curriculum.
Today, a teacher with responsibilities for sex education at Park View Academy, known as Witness A, revealed girls were told ‘if a woman disobeyed her husband then she would be smited’.
She said: ‘I became aware of a handout which had been used in the boy’s SRE lessons and subsequently confiscated by one of my colleagues, Sue Packer
‘I recall that the handout included phrases stating that a woman could not refuse to obey her husband in marriage and that included she could not say no to her husband having sex with her.
‘There was a wording along the lines that if a woman disobeyed her husband, then she would be smited and forced to an eternity in hell.
‘It included quotes from the Koran I recall the wording was very strong and the best way I can describe it now is that it was along the lines of “hell, fire and damnation” for any woman who said no to her husband, including in matters of sexual intercourse.’
She said she knew the leaflet was given to pupils because of their comments at break time, adding that ‘three male teachers did not feel it necessary to teach the boys about the use of condoms’.
The teacher continued: ‘A meeting took place with Ahmed and two other teachers, and they were chosen to teach the boys sex education.
'There were only three lessons they taught, in 2011. In feedback forms we gave to students immediately after those lessons, we asked them to answer on a scale of one to ten, “I can protect myself from catching an STI”.
The feedback forms showed a significant number did not know how to.'
The teacher also spoke of segregated assemblies when she arrived in 2009, with one Islamic in the main hall and another in the canteen, adding: ‘That then changed to more recently to just two Islamic assemblies a week.’
And she said of the ‘Morality Squad’ and pro-Islam posters: ‘They would inform staff of general information, like if a boy was going out with a girl. Basically, the posters promote the values on how a good Muslim should behave.
‘The posters were put into the registers so they were distributed in every form room across the school. Some referred to prayer times, but others did not. They had an Arabic message that was translated in English.’
Earlier in the hearing, Ahmed and Anwar were accused of taking part in WhatsApp chats which included anti-Semitic themes and comments about the murder of drummer Lee Rigby in London and the Boston Marathon massacre in 2013.
Following the Trojan Horse scandal, Park View School was placed in special measures by Ofsted and renamed Rockwood Academy.
Ahmed, 41, of Tettenhall, Wolverhampton, and Anwar, 34, of Bordesley Green, Birmingham, both deny misconduct.
The hearing continues.
