A Muslim classroom assistant sacked by a West Yorkshire school for refusing to take off her veil during lessons is appealing against her dismissal.
Aishah Azmi, 24, was asked to remove the veil after Headfield Church of England school in Dewsbury said pupils found it hard to understand her.
She refused and was sacked after an employment tribunal ruled that she had not been discriminated against.
Mrs Azmi has now lodged papers with the Employment Appeals Tribunal in London.
In October, an employment tribunal dismissed her three claims for discrimination and harassment, although it did agree she had been victimised by Kirklees Council, the local education authority.
She was awarded £1,100 in damages. [Link]
