British school bus drivers have ignored pupils who weared Muslim hijab in a racist move in Merseyside, according to British reports.
 
The problems centre on Merseytravel and pupils attending West Derby's Holly Lodge Girls' College in Merseyside, where 10 per cent of the 11,274 11 to 18-year-old students are from ethnic minorities, Daily Mail said.
 
Young girls have claimed they are being bullied on board for dressing in the traditional veil which covers the head when they wait at bus stops.
 
But police officers will now be drafted on to board the buses to protect the students from ‘racist’ taunts of other passengers after an investigation, according to report.
 
Holly Lodge has previously won praise from Ofsted for its ‘promotion of equality and diversity’.

Headteacher Julia Tinsley was quoted as saying that ‘It is completely unacceptable and very upsetting for those involved and we have provided support to those affected."
