It has been suggested several times that I stop speaking english (my husband French) to our children and speak the German, which I can get by in, but in which I am no means fluent.

They are taught by the teacher to pull their eyes into slits whilst singing in chinese.
Just these two points on their own are entirely unacceptable. The first is utter nonsense - speaking to your children in your mother tongue is vital to their entire language acquisition.

The second... words fail me.

Since the headmaster seems to not understand the issues, I think your best option is to move to another community. The only other route is to go to his bosses - and it won't end prettily, I think.
