School at centre of Muslim extremist allegations backing “British values” production
“Eight notable scenes from British history are to be translated into a colourful performance installation decorating the corridors of Saltley Academy, formerly Saltley School. Created with 11 and 12 year olds the project is a fresh and visionary approach to teaching and learning around the British values of tolerance, the rule of law, community, freedom of expression and equality.
Following last year’s play Any Fool Can Start A War which told the story of the Cuban Missile Crisis with sixty Year 6 students, internationally acclaimed theatre company Stan’s Cafe are now working with 240 students from Saltley Academy. Each Year 7 class is responsible for a different scene depicting a moment in British history from the discovery of Guy Fawkes’ gun powder plot through the Suffragette movement and 2012 Jubilee. In each scene ‘St. George’ will metaphorically ‘slay a dragon’ that threatens freedom and tolerance. When completed, the installation will be used as a teaching resource and shared with the rest of the school, parents and children from neighbouring schools.”

That’ll be news to St. George I bet.
St. George was decapitated for his faith, I’m sure that part will please the wee Islamists.
