Nanny Bans Raleigh, Nelson and Drake


Howden Junior School, in East Yorkshire, has ditched the house names of Sir Walter Raleigh, Admiral Nelson and Francis Drake and the school's student council has voted on the following replacements:

-Greta Thunberg 

-Marcus Rashford

-Amanda Gorman

-Malala Yousafzai.

The school can call its houses what it likes. However, what is rather telling is the headmaster's comment about the pupils' knowledge of the banned historical figures.

As per The Mail:

"The headteacher goes on to explain that the school had no 'tangible reason' to keep the historical names and that none of the pupils knew who they were as they were not part of the curriculum."

Maybe this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given that in the last Ofsted inspection, the school was given a "requires improvement" rating:

“Provision for history (...) especially requires improvement” is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
