Sources claim Balwant Bains (pictured below) was ‘bullied and intimidated’ before he left Saltley School last November after clashing with its governing body
A head teacher whose school was targeted in an alleged Jihadist plot was forced out after opposing Muslim governor plans to scrap sex education and allow only halal food, it was claimed.
Sources claim Balwant Bains was “bullied and intimidated” in the months before he left Saltley School last November after clashing with its governing body.
The respected head, who is of Sikh origin, was allegedly undermined when governors overturned his decision to expel a Muslim pupil found with a knife.
It was claimed he was also targeted in an anonymous text message that branded him a “racist, Islamophobic head teacher”.
Five non-Muslim governors have resigned in recent months and 12 of the school’s 14 current governors are Muslim, it was reported on Sunday.
The development came days after the Birmingham Mail revealed allegedly leaked documents showed Islamic fundamentalists were targeting Birmingham schools and trying to oust headteachers and other staff, including non-Muslims, through dirty tricks campaigns.
The conspirators would then install their own hard-line supporters to encourage the school to move to Academy status and educate children on strict Islamic principles, it was claimed.
The alleged plot, called Operation Trojan Horse, is being investigation by Birmingham City Council, which has alerted the Department for Education.
West Midlands Police have reopened a fraud investigation at one school named in the documents and Ofsted conducted a snap inspection at another last week.
Schools named in the documents include Park View Academy in Alum Rock, Adderley Primary School and Saltley School, both in Saltley, and Regents Park Community Primary in Small Heath.
Saltley has about 950 predominantly Muslim pupils aged 11-16. Problems are said to have surfaced last year when Mr Bains was asked by governors to make curriculum changes.
“The governors demanded that he get rid of sex education and citizenship classes because they were deemed un-Islamic,” a friend of Mr Bains claimed on Sunday.
“He was also told that he should introduce Islamic studies into the curriculum, even though the school is a non-faith school, and he was told that only halal food should be served on the premises. Bains refused their demands and that’s when things started to go wrong for him.”
Mr Bains went on “gardening leave” last November after a report by Ofsted that concluded that he had a “dysfunctional” relationship with the governors.
On Sunday Ahson Mohammed, Saltley’s interim head teacher, confirmed halal food had been introduced at the school canteen but said the decision was based on “the make-up of the students rather than a demand from the school”.
He said that both sex education and citizenship studies remained part of the curriculum. But he denied Islamic studies had been introduced, insisting students were taught about both Islam and Christianity.
Birmingham City Council refused to comment on the Saltley claims but the investigation into the anonymous letter was continuing.
