A controversial Muslim school where staff were forced to wear the hijab has temporarily closed after concerns were raised by Ofsted inspectors.
They were called to the Al-Madinah free school in Derby to investigate a series of concerns, including claims that girls were made to sit at the back of classes.
It has not yet been confirmed whether other concerns, including the strict dress codes imposed on non-Muslim teachers and the segregation of girls and boys, were linked to the closure.
Nick Raine, a regional officer for the National Union of Teachers, who had been contacted by six teachers from the school with concerns about its practices, said shutting a school within hours of an inspection is ‘unprecedented’.
He added: ‘It must be quite significant for a school to be shut down so quickly.’ The school is already being investigated by the Education Funding Agency, from which it receives public money, over alleged irregularities over its grants.
How many times do we have to tell the British governments that Sunnis hide their real beliefs. When they meet ministers to get government funding they are nice and moderate but the truth is behind the scenes. For example, they say Islam does not force others to follow their rules but look at what this “Islamic” school was doing.

The police approached the community on Friday after a local cleric complained that three worship places for Ahmadis had features that resembled mosques, namely minarets and verses from the Quran written on the walls.
The minarets and verses were covered up, apparently to the police’s satisfaction, but a baying mob gathered at one worship place the next day and demanded that the minarets be torn down. The police did so. The group of protesters is now demanding that similar action be taken against two other worship places within a couple of days.
Persecution of Ahmadis in the name of Islam continues. September 7, the day of shame for Sunnis, is used to stir up mobs against the Ahmadiyya Movement and its holy founder Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. All manner of falsehood is propagated against Ahmadis without there being any opportunity to respond. The fact that in South Africa twice and in England once the courts of law have accepted Ahmadis as Muslims. This is the real face of Sunni Islam and sharia that they want to impose on the United Kingdom
