A spokeswoman for the school said: “This individual was engaged as a supply teacher through an agency for a single day.
“Unfortunately her behaviour with our children was found to be unacceptable and she was asked to leave before completing the day.
“Any form of racism is taken very seriously in our schools. Our academy is in a very diverse area of London and our staff and students come from a wide range of backgrounds.”
So she was racist towards the children? Well, no. She claims they were racist towards her.
I know! Hard to believe, eh?
The spokeswoman said there were two other teachers in the classroom at the time of the incident and that no racial comments were made towards Ms Wilson.
“We strongly refute her (Ms Wilson’s) version of events.”
When asked what exactly Ms Wilson said that was so “unacceptable,” the school declined to answer.
Maybe the newspaper should instead have asked the school why three teachers were apparently needed in a class of such little angels…?
The supply teacher said she was only trying to “give advice” to the kids, but left after being instructed to.
“The head teacher said if I had known the difficult and poor backgrounds that the children came from that I would understand that racism is excused and that they can’t help it,” she said.
Now, really, does that sound like something a modern, progressive head teacher might say?
“When I said the children did understand because some recognised that it was rude and racist, she just replied that I made a big issue out of nothing.”
The supply agency that Ms Wilson works for is now investigating the incident.
What powers do they have for that, I wonder?
