Teachers' extremist fears over boy, 10, after he complains about lack of prayer room
A primary school reported a ten-year-old Muslim boy to police on suspicion of extremism after he complained about not having a prayer room.
The boy, a pupil at Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, was on a residential trip when he came to the teachers' attention. He also told female Muslim pupils they needed to cover their faces with a head scarf.
The school referred the boy to police under the government's Prevent Duty initiative, which provides guidance to teachers on spotting signs of extremism.
