SCHOOL BANS PIGS STORIES


Pigs

Books about pigs will still be in the school library

A West Yorkshire head teacher has banned books containing stories about pigs from the classroom in case they offend Muslim children.

The literature has been removed from classes for under-sevens at Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School in Batley.

Head Barbara Harris said the books would remain in the school library for children to read.

Sixty per cent of the school’s pupils are of Pakistani or Indian origin and 99% of these pupils are Muslims.

School library

Mrs Harris said in a statement: „Recently I have been aware of an occasion where young Muslim children in class were read stories about pigs.

„We try to be sensitive to the fact that for Muslims talk of pigs is offensive.“

The head teacher sent a memo to staff saying fiction books containing stories about pigs should be removed from early years and key stage one classrooms.

 

Mrs Harris added: „The books remain in the school library and there is nothing to stop our younger children having stories such as ‚The Three Little Pigs‘ in small groups.“
