The head of Ofsted has been accused of Islamophobia by teachers over remarks she made about young girls wearing the hijab in the classroom.

Amanda Spielman was criticised by the teaching union for suggesting school inspectors will ask girls why they are wearing the head covering.

Members of the National Union of Teachers section of the National Education Union accused the schools’ watchdog of taking an ‘unwarranted and typically draconian stance’ on the issue.
