Who's Looking After Your Children?

concerned parentChildminder guilty of racially-aggravated assault.

The recent story of a childminder in Derby who scrawled the word nigger on the forehead of a mixed-race child she was looking after should send out a message to parents, to ensure the people their children are in the company of those that have their children's best interest at heart, and do not harbour racist views that could affect the welfare of their children.

The insult was still visible when the child returned home, and police and social workers were called in. The childminder Fay Stockley tried to laugh the incident off when first interviewed by officers, claiming that the girl had 'pestered' her to use the word instead of her actual name, which cannot be given for legal reasons.

Stockley, 57 was given a suspended sentence after she was found guilty of guilty of racially-aggravated assault by a jury at the city's crown court last month.

In her defence Stuart Lody said Stockley was grieving over the death of her husband and was too ignorant to realise that she had done wrong. 'In all other respects she is a thoroughly good and decent-living woman,' he added.

Recorder John Aucott told Stockley: 'You have been convicted by a jury of a wicked thing. You abused this girl by demonstrating the clearest hostility to her mixed race status by writing the word n***er.'

Stockley was not registered with Ofsted as a childminder but is likely to face a social services ban on looking after children in future.

It is not known how long Stockley was abusing the child in this way but it does make you wonder how many other people choose to take their hatred out on children.

Do you think the childminder got off too lightly?
