"English" Pupils Become Minority in 1500 UK Schools

LABOUR’S open-door policy on immigration is leading to English becoming a second language in schools across Britain, figures revealed yesterday.

Since 1997, the number of schools in which more than 50 per cent of pupils have English as their second language has almost doubled.

Critics said the figures reflected the “splintering of society” as a result of the UK’s inefficient border controls under Labour.

Pupils with English as their first language now find themselves in the minority in more than 1,500 schools across the country.

And the huge rise in foreign- speaking pupils is placing growing strain on already stretched council education services.

The shocking figures, released under a Freedom of Information request, show that in 1997 there were 866 schools in England where more than 50 per cent of pupils spoke a foreign language as their mother tongue.

However, by 2009 this figure had rocketed to 1,545 schools, a rise of 78 per cent during the time that Labour has been in power.

Sir Andrew Green, of MigrationWatch UK, said: “These figures are unmistakable evidence that, in some parts of England, mass immigration is splintering our society. The only solution is to get immigration down to manageable proportions.”

Shadow immigration minister Damian Green said: “Since 1997, Labour’s open-door immigration policy has seen the largest rise in immigration in our history. In 1997 net migration – the number of people who come to settle here, minus the number who leave – was 48,000. In 2008 it was 163,000.

The statistics, released by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, reveal there are now 1,284 primary schools, 210 secondary schools and 51 special schools where more than half the pupils come from a non- English speaking background.

Around one in seven youngsters in primary schools, almost 500,000, do not have English as their first language. In secondary schools the figure stands at 364,000, just over one in 10. John Paul, from the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, said teachers needed more financial support.

In Peterborough, some 10,000 eastern European immigrants have arrived in the last six years, putting huge strain on education and social housing.

Last night no one at the Department for Children, Schools and Families was available for comment.

  1. Sad, sad. Incredibly sad.

  2. Yeah – spot the white and win a prize – in the UK!

  3. What is behind this madness, can someone please come up with a plausible explanation.
    The western world is doomed , now can someone tell us.
    I think we deserve to know who killed it.

  4. Absolutely true, we did, even if it is done by the illuminati, international jewry, old nazi's hiding in bunkers,the reptilian royal family, aliens from outer space , mind control or the effects of flouride in water in conjuction with peanut butter. Ultimately we did it, we are not paying attention to what is going on around us and we trust the media to educate us.We learn how to live by watching soapies . It is time for people to get their fat backsides off those comfortables chairs and to start by informing themselves.People should take pride in their heritage.This world situation will not only destroy the white race but other proud races too.The war has started already, here on the internet.

  5. @ Anon 00:53 – 100% correct. We have been dumbed down by TV. We have lost our thirst for knowledge and with knowledge comes history and questioning…
