The Education Minister, Lord Nash, has said some teachers have been suspended for causing harassment amid the so-called "Trojan Horse" allegations of a takeover plot in Birmingham.
Lord Nash also said the goverment is in talks with Ofsted about expanding their whistleblowing arrangements.
Labour peer Baroness Bakewell asked during question time in the Lords:
"After the Trojan Horse allegations, it has been reported teachers who did speak out at the time are now suffering harassment and the threat of losing their jobs.
So what is the Government proposing as a way of protecting whistleblowers locally so that they are given enough courage to come forward and speak out?"
Lord Nash replied:
"You raise a very good point. We are doing all we can to ensure this is not happening.
Indeed, there are some teachers who we have particular concerns about who have now been suspended from their jobs, who themselves have been causing harassment, and we are talking to Ofsted about expanding their whistleblowing arrangements for exactly this kind of situation."
