"Ofsted inspectors have criticised an Islamic independent school (previously described as 'inadequate' ) after discovering leaflets which claimed music and dancing were "acts of the devil"
"...The school rejected previous Ofsted criticism, saying that it promoted "both Islamic and British values".
An Ofsted inspection last year had found weaknesses with the school and inspectors returned without warning to monitor how an improvement plan was being implemented.
But inspectors found printed material with "extremist views".
It also warns that there is a lack of evidence that the lessons match the published curriculum.
For example, the policy states that the biggest timetable weighting has been given to English and mathematics, but inspection evidence and school timetables show that pupils study Arabic for approximately half of the school day."
The school was previously criticised by Ofsted for what appeared to the segregation of male and female governors.
Ofsted had reported that the school's only female governor sat in an adjacent room during meetings.
But the school challenged this, saying that the female governor was making a choice to sit separately and that this arrangement was respecting her rights.

Any school which puts islam before the curriculum will obviously be crap.

They should just shut it down. Stop trying to be PC about it and sort it out.

I thought if you get on the wrong side of Ofsted you get a fine or shut down. I wonder how many f***s they gave about "criticism".

Ofsted criticise their actions but do little to change these schools. Great.
