Creeping stupidity in England. via Parents fury as pork sausages are banned from the school menu and replaced with halal meat | Mail Online.
Parents have condemned a school’s decision to ban all pork products from the menu and replace other meats with halal versions.
Pupils aged between three and 11 at Brinsworth Manor Infant and Junior Schools in Rotherham – which Ofsted identifies as having only a small number of pupils from minority ethnic groups – will no longer be able to enjoy sausages, bacon or ham.
Parents at both schools, which share a site, were told of the decision in a letter from Rotherham Council’s principal catering officer Ron Parry, who wrote that there had been ‘minor adjustments’ to the lunch menu.
And parents have branded the decision ‘a scandal’ as only twenty per cent of the 600 pupils are Muslim and the decision to provide halal meat was up to individual schools in the town.
‘I feel as strongly against eating meat that had been blessed in the name of a god I don’t believe in and the animal killed in a way I do not agree with, as Muslims do against eating non-halal meat.
‘The children love pork and it’s a scandal to take these meats off the menu to please, what I consider to be, a low number of children who require halal meat.
‘The majority of the children are now having school meals that are made for the minority. The halal children have always had the vegetarian and fish options. ‘
Another mum of a son at the school said she believed that halal slaughtering was cruel.
She added : ‘My son is a really fussy eater and pork is his favourite meat. He’ll get bored having chicken all the time.’
A mother of two said parents who do not know much about halal meat had not been given enough information or time to understand it.
She said : ‘Normally the school is good at consulting parents but with this we have just been told what is going to happen.
‘I’d want to know more about halal meat before I’d be happy for my children to eat it. I’ve been told it is not as well refrigerated.
The school governors at both schools are understood to have agreed to the menu change to ensure the meals are more inclusive.
A spokesman for Rotherham Borough Council confirmed that school meals at both Brinsworth Manor schools have changed and now include halal and non-halal meat on the menu.
She added that the Schools Catering Service supplies about 17,000 school meals every day to children at infant, junior, primary and secondary schools in Rotherham.
She said: ‘The provision of both halal and non-halal is not unusual in Rotherham’s school. Currently, nine schools out of 115, select one of our menus that provide a mix of both halal and non-halal meals.
Twenty, thirty, forty years from now the Islamic invasion will have destroyed England or caused civil war.
