Section 48 Inspection
The school had a Section 48 inspection on 16th January 2017. This is an OFSTED style inspection on the faith provision of the school. It was conducted by three inspectors sent by the AMS (Association of Muslim Schools).
You will be pleased to note that MashaAllah the provision was graded ‘Outstanding’ in all areas. It is a credit to all our pupils, parents, staff, governors and school community!

Parking around the school
Parents are reminded to kindly ensure that they take due consideration of our neighbours and other road users, when dropping off or picking up their children from school.
Please do not inconvenience others by parking your car inappropriately.
We strongly recommend that parents walk to school or utilise public transport when bringing pupils to school. We are part of the ‘Air Mazing’ journeys programme run together with Sustrans. This project aims to create awareness of environmental issues relating to air pollution, etc. We are encouraging our children to help protect the environment and consider alternative ways to travel to school, wherever possible.
