Dewsbury Islamic school praised by Ofsted

-A private Islamic school in Dewsbury, Paradise Primary School, has been rated as either good or outstanding across all areas of the curriculum, with literacy and numeracy being rated highly, following an Ofsted inspection in July.

From The Press:

“The school scored 100 per cent pass rates in SAT tests for English and Maths in 2010/11, well above the Kirklees average of about 80 per cent.  

“Ofsted’s report said: “The school’s curriculum successfully meets the academic needs of its pupils.

“There is a clear and detailed curriculum policy and the quality of planning for English and mathematics is outstanding.”

The founder of the school, Moulana Ilyas Dalal said,

“Our staff and governor team work hard to deliver a personalised curriculum that meets the needs of each child.

“Our approach is based around thinking, learning and having fun while ensuring basic skills are taught at the highest level.

“We strive to prepare well-balanced responsible children who are capable of meeting the challenges of living in 21st century Britain.”

Islamic schools in the UK have frequently received bad press, with reports such as this one from the Sunday Telegraph, and this one from the Daily Express.

Good then to see reports such as the one in The Press, and this earlier one in the Southern Echo, which highlight the hard work and teaching excellence Islamic schools strive towards as they provide Muslim parents with the option of a faith school education for their child.
