A head teacher who was accused of racism after she tried to scrap separate assemblies for Muslim children at her school has resigned.
Julia Robinson's departure follows an 18-month dispute over her attempt to hold a single weekly assembly for all pupils at Meersbrook Bank primary school, in Sheffield, regardless of their faith.
More than 20 per cent of the school's 240 pupils are Muslims.
Parents from the local mosque said that the Islamic services started ten years ago after they withdrew their children from the daily service.
One said that the split came after a teacher tried to force a Muslim pupil to sing a Christian hymn.
