    English is Not the First Language for ONE MILLION Schoolchildren

    English is not the first language for ONE MILLION schoolchildren



    Around one in seven children of compulsory school age in schools in England speak another language at home. Nearly one million school children do not speak English as their first language, official figures showed today. In total, around one in seven children (14 per cent) of compulsory school age at state primary, secondary and special schools in England speak another language at home, according to statistics published by the Department for Education.

    The figures are higher in primaries than in secondaries - with one in six (16 per cent) of school age youngsters aged 11 and under speaking English as a second language - 518,020 pupils overall. In secondaries that figure is around one in eight (11.6 per cent), with 378,210 pupils with a language other than English as their first language.

    And one in ten (10.9 per cent) special school pupils, 9,380 in total, do not have English as a first language. The overall figure for all schools is 905,610 pupils with English as a second language. Today's statistics give a snapshot of the makeup of England's state schools in January this year. They also reveal that rising numbers of youngsters are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) - a measure of poverty.

    In secondary schools, 15.4 per cent, or 441,000 pupils, are eligible for the dinners, up from 14.5 per cent, or 417,970 pupils last year. It means an extra 23,000 secondary school pupils are now eligible for the dinners than there were in 2009. This figure has risen for the second year in a row, and is likely to be a continuing effect of the recession as the poorest families struggle to stay above the breadline.

    The numbers of FSM pupils in primary schools has also risen - 18.5 per cent of primary youngsters are now eligible for the meals, compared to 17.1 per cent in 2009. This is an extra 59,100 pupils. Pilots of universal free school meals for primary children were introduced in three local authorities last September, which would account for a proportion of this rise.

    Christine Blower, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) said: 'The number of primary school pupils entitled to free meals has gone up in part because of the additional provision provided in the last pre budget report which we thought was a very good idea. 'We do know that the last Government had a programme to eradicate child poverty but we also know that the gap between the richest and poorest in the country was opening up rather than closing. This, combined with the possible effect of job loss through recession may account for the larger numbers of secondary school pupils entitled to free school meals.

    'The challenge to the new Government is to maintain child poverty reduction targets and to seek to close the gap between the richest and poorest.'

    From what I hear from my brother, the africans from down south are starting to flood into secondary schools here on Teesside now. Foreign leeches. Nowhere in Britain is going to be unaffected.

    When I was in secondary we used to teach the lone arabs who couldn't speak English how to swear and nothing else before they got deported/moved schools/stopped attending. As soon as one is deported, another one replaces them.

    English Culture Threat

    The same thing happened in South Africa where the non whites bred themselves into a majority and now they are chasing the whites into the sea. By the way in fifty years statistics show that Britain will be a Muslim state, just like France and Germany.
