    The Schools Where NO Pupils Speak English As a First Language

    The schools where NO pupils speak English as a first language


    There are now ten schools in England without a single pupil who speaks English as his or her first language.

    Research reveals that there are almost 600 primary schools where 70 per cent or more of youngsters normally speak a foreign language.

    Across the country, one in seven pupils aged 4-11 does not have English as the first language, which is the equivalent of 466,620 children.

    But, following years of unprecedented levels of migration, ten schools have now reached a point where every youngster falls into this category.

    Their locations range from London to Lancashire. One, St Hilda’s in Oldham, is a Church of England school.

    Some schools are in areas with long-established Muslim populations. In others, the high number of non-English speakers is the consequence of large-scale immigration from Eastern Europe.

    Labour MP Frank Field and Tory MP Nicholas Soames, co-chairmen of the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration, said: ‘These figures make a nonsense of the Government’s aim of integration and show the very real strain that uncontrolled large scale immigration is already placing upon our society.

    ‘In hundreds of primary schools, English is the second language for over 70 per cent or more of the pupils.

    ‘How can these children be expected to integrate into our society if they are being taught in schools where is English is the mother tongue of no pupils or a minority of pupils?’

    Mr Field asked the Children’s Department to produce a list of all those schools where seven in ten or more pupils did not have English as their first language.

    The 591 primary schools out of 17,205 which fall into this category represent around three per cent, or around one in 30.

    There are a number of local authorities where 20 per cent or more of their schools have at least 70 per cent of youngsters who do not have English as their first language.

    These include the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets (62 per cent), Newham (46.9), Brent (28.8) and Ealing (28), plus Blackburn (26.7), Leicester (25.9), Bradford (25), Luton (20.3) and Birmingham (20).

    Shadow immigration minister Damian Green said: ‘Two successful elements of any immigration policy should be to limit the numbers coming in so that the pressure on all public services is reduced, and to insist on English being spoken to a competent level by people coming here to get married.

    ‘It is relatively easy to cope with a small number of non-English speakers, but incredibly difficult if there are large numbers. Scale matters.’

    David Green, director of the Civitas think-tank, has warned that when a large number of immigrant children go into schools, it is very hard for the staff to accommodate them and specialist teachers have to be brought in.

    Last night, Dr Green said that when the Government was advocating the economic benefits of mass migration, it failed to take into account the impact on schools and other public services.

    He warned that one of the consequences of having schools where no pupils had English as a first language was that they and their families might lead a sectarian lifestyle.

    A spokesman for the Children’s Department said: ‘It is important to remember that some of the schools with 100 per cent of their pupils with English as an additional language are actually doing very well, especially considering the extra challenges they face.

    ‘Even if a pupil speaks another language they may still be highly competent in English, and many are. In cases recent arrivals from countries such as Poland have helped keep small rural schools open that may have otherwise closed because of falling pupil numbers.

    ‘The language of instruction in English schools is English and this is vital in boosting community cohesion.

    ‘The task is to get every child up to speed in English so that they can access the whole curriculum.

    ‘We have listened to the concerns of head teachers and are increasing funding in the Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant to £206million by 2010, to bring students weak in English up to speed.’

    In my primary school almost everyone spoke English as a second language. Obviously this led to a lot of isolation and a lack of long-term friends in my childhood. I've never got to know someone well enough to become a ''best friend''.
    I imagine this is a fate for a lot of British children in minority schools

    I don't think they (the Government) get the point do they? They just look at this as a problem to throw money at. When I read the headline, I felt a mixture of disgust and despair. How can things have gotten so out of control that whole communities have been taken over by ethnic minorities? I suppose that any children from white families in the area would go to other "less ethnic" schools. I certainly would never send my children to a school in the UK where they would be in the minority.

    Sad Is Britain Dying??

    Is Britain Dying? 316 Schools Have Non-English-Speaking Majorities

    At least 316 primary schools in England have a large majority of children whose first language is not English, according to new figures released in parliament.

    The colonisation of Britain by Third Worlders has reached epidemic proportions. The local education authority with the most primaries where English is not the mother-tongue of 70 percent or more pupils is Birmingham, with 60 schools, followed by Tower Hamlets in east London (43) and Bradford (40).

    All these regions have seen large scale Third World immigration, some of them now into second generation level.

    Other educational authorities with high numbers of non-English-speaking pupil majorities include Newham (31), Leicester and Kirklees (both 21), Ealing (18), Brent and Oldham (both 17), Blackburn & Darwen (15), Lancashire (13), Luton (11) and Rochdale (9).

    Responding to the announcement, a spokesman for the Department for Children, Schools and Families was quoted in a newspaper as saying, “We have listened to concerns of head teachers and are increasing funding in the Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant to £206 million by 2010, to bring students weak in English up to speed.”

    In other words, indigenous British people are being taxed extra to pay for their own colonisation by immigrants who have, over at least two generations, refused to integrate or even learn the native language.

    One cannot imagine any Third World nation taxing its own people extra to pay for outside invaders to learn their language, after those outsiders have effectively ethnically cleansed entire cities of the native language speakers.

    Official government projections show that if left unchecked, immigration and already-present immigrant reproduction rates will see the indigenous British people reduced to a minority in this country within the next 60 years.

    The only party which opposes this betrayal of British sovereignty is the British National Party, which has sensible, reasonable and fair immigration policies which are designed to ensure that Britain remains a British nation.

    Is Britain dying? Looking at those statistics, the Britain that we all know and love is almost certainly dying. The racial makeup of the UK seems to be of no importance to most politicians.

    They say the plus-side of this mass-immigration is that schools aren't closing due to lack of pupils?

    It was their bloody liberal views(abortion, birth-control etc.) that got them into such a situation! And now they're trying to make up for it by messing the UK up even more!?
