British lessons in primary schools will protect UK from terrorism, says Nicky Morgan

Teaching every schoolchild in the country about British values is as important as Maths and English and will protect UK from terror attacks, the Education secretary has said.

The lessons in British values were introduced by Michael Gove, Nicky Morgan’s predecessor as Education secretary, in the wake of the Trojan horse scandal last when primary schools were infiltrated by radical Muslims in Birmingham.

An inquiry by Peter Clarke, the former anti-terror chief, later concluded that there had been “co-ordinated, deliberate and sustained action” by a number of individuals to introduce an “intolerant and aggressive Islamic ethos” into a few schools in the city.
