Parents have condemned a school's decision to ban all pork products from the menu and replace other meats with halal versions.
Pupils aged between three and 11 at Brinsworth Manor Infant and Junior Schools in Rotherham - which Ofsted identifies as having only a small number of pupils from minority ethnic groups - will no longer be able to enjoy sausages, bacon or ham.
Parents at both schools, which share a site, were told of the decision in a letter from Rotherham Councils principal catering officer Ron Parry, who wrote that there had been minor adjustments to the lunch menu.
The move comes as Britain's vet John Blackwell called for Muslims and Jews to use more 'acceptable' methods of killing.
And parents have branded the decision 'a scandal' as only twenty per cent of the 600 pupils are Muslim and the decision to provide halal meat was up to individual schools in the town.
A mother with an 11-year-old girl at the school, who asked not to be named for fear of being branded racist, said: 'At home I pay more for organic and free range food. I am a Christian but I dont do it because of that, its more for the respect of how animals are killed.

England = I don’t care
It’s like looking thru a time portal into our future. Ten or twenty years, and we’ll be reading about Cleveland or Atlanta doing this.
Brits have been eating pork sausages for thousands of years and now, because some fanatics from the desert show up on their shores, they cannot eat their long-established traditional foods because it might culturally offend the interlopers? Drive them into the sea and don’t look back.
From Front Page Magazine, 2008:
Meanwhile, in the United States in 2007, several school districts removed pork products from their cafeteria offerings. Dearborn, Mich., schools banned pork completely to avoid the possibility that Muslims students might unknowingly eat it. The district later added special halal foods to its menu to cater to the demands of its Muslim population. An elementary school in San Diego that offers Arabic, single-gender classes and Muslim-only organized prayer, no longer offers pork to any of its students. And in Oak Lawn, Ill., where the administration is debating elimination of Christmas holiday celebrations, pork has already been banished from the school lunchroom.
Orthodox Jews, who follow kosher laws that prohibit the consumption of pork, have never demanded such special considerations for their chosen dietary habits nor have Jews feared accidental pork ingestion. They privately moderate their consumption according to their religious observances and often consume food prepared at home according to prescribed regulations.
Your ancestors from 1066 are rolling over in their graves.
Bangers and mash? Bush bye!!
That’s buh bye
Mmmmmmm pork sausage!
What were we discussing?
Well, England is just ever so slightly more stupid than America, but really, not by much at all.
Is Islam a race?
Hmmm. Horsemeat is on the menu.
Well, technically, you might want to say 1065, because in 1066 they had a HUGE immigration problem with the some ex-Vikings from Northern France!
Dagnabbit, now I’m craving a dish of Bubble and Squeak.
Next they will require the girls to wear the Muslim bags over their heads and the guys to wear those guy dresses that the Muslim Imam spooks wear.
Well, there ya go. It seems like it is limited to isolated schools or smaller, probably Muslim-heavy, towns here at the moment. I don’t doubt we’ll see some big cities going that way soon enough, if we keep on this course.
