Sir Keith Ajegbo speaks at cohesion conference

On Wednesday Sir Keith Ajegbo, a Citizenship Foundation trustee, spoke at a cohesion conference held by Waltham Forest Council.

As part of a new initiative introduced by the council, teachers and students are being taught how to spot signs of extremist attitudes in schools.

Sir Keith Ajegbo, former Head of Deptford Green School, and author of the report to the Secretary of State for Education and Science on diversity and citizenship within the school curriculum, asked: ‘Given the coverage of something like Islam in the papers, how can schools deal with it in a measured way? What is the responsibility for heads in terms of the concerns they may have regarding views of pupils or parents?’
