This
is the first picture of an RE teacher who called Islam ‘sick’ and ‘a
plague’ in a Facebook rant and accessed pornography on his school
laptop.
Nicholas
Hall, 53, who was a teacher at Soar Valley College in Leicester for 15
years, also let children as young as 12 and 13 watch an 18-certificate
film.
Hall,
who also attended Britain First marches at least once, resigned earlier
this year after being suspended by the school – and has now been banned
from teaching.

A
National College for Teaching and Leadership panel investigated a
series of accusations and found him guilty of ‘unacceptable professional
conduct’.
The teacher has now been struck off indefinitely by the Department for Education.
Hall
admitted all the allegations, including saying on Facebook that Islam
is a ‘sick religion’. He also described Islam as a ‘plague’ that needed
to be eradicated.
Hall
also failed to act after a student made a comment about taking drugs and
feigned illness so he could work as a security guard.
But
he denied an allegation that he had expressed anti-Islamic views to
another member of staff, and the panel found that not proved.
The
panel heard the first incident was when Hall showed year eight pupils
an 18-certificate film, which had reference to drug use and explicit
language.

There
was an internal disciplinary hearing in 2012 after a vicar wrote to the
school to complain children had been shown a film of an ‘extremely
crude and sexual nature’.
In
2014 and 2015, Hall took sick leave to work as a security guard, and
also attended a Britain First rally in March 2015 when he was off sick.
In
its report, the panel said: ‘Having found a number of the allegations
to have been proven, the panel is satisfied that the conduct of Mr Hall
in relation to the facts found proven, involved breaches of the
teachers’ standards.
‘The panel is satisfied the conduct of Mr Hall fell significantly short of the standards expected of the profession.’
They
found he had breached several of the official standards, including
those requiring teachers to observe ‘proper boundaries’, to safeguard
pupils’ well-being and to show ‘tolerance of those with different faiths
and beliefs’.

Regarding
the religious intolerance, the report said: ‘The panel is of the view
the conduct displayed by Mr Hall in relation to these allegations
affects the way in which Mr Hall fulfils his role as a teacher, or may
lead to pupils being exposed to or influenced by his behaviour in a
harmful way.
‘The panel has seen no evidence of any insight or remorse from Mr Hall.’
The report said what Hall admitted to displayed an ‘attitude of vehement intolerance toward people of other faiths’.
It
said: ‘The panel believes such an attitude is completely incongruous
with Mr Hall’s role as a teacher, but particularly his role as an RE
teacher of the college.
‘The panel is satisfied Mr Hall is guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.’
Hall has been banned from teaching in any school, sixth form college or children’s home in England indefinitely.
