MADNI Muslim Girls’ School staff says they are “thrilled” with the school’s latest Ofsted report.
Inspectors gave the school a good rating in all areas following a visit last month.
Under the new Ofsted framework all schools are judged on a common inspection framework, and this inspection represents a progressive step for the school.
All three of its schools (early years, primary and secondary) were graded as good with outstanding features. In a statement, the School’s head teacher said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the result and feel this is a reflection of the combined efforts and dedication of all the staff, parents and children over the last few years.
“At Madni Girls’ School we aspire to motivate, inspire and challenge our students, empowering them to achieve their social and academic potential in a safe Islamic environment. We are committed to making rapid progress on the areas identified for improvement in order to become an outstanding school, and the latest inspection report and feedback from the Inspection team leads us to believe we are already on the way.”
Inspectors praised the students at the school commenting: ‘their behaviour is outstanding; furthermore pupils are committed to their learning and value their education. They are self-disciplined, confident and proud of their school.’ Inspectors added that ‘pupils make good progress from their starting points and that progress is above average in the majority of subjects. GCSE results are improving over the years.’
The school was commended by Ofsted on its Social, moral, Spiritual and cultural provision, stating that the school ensures that pupils are well equipped for life in modern Britain.
The leaders at the school were also praised in the report and described as being ‘enthusiastic, driven and passionate leaders that have improved teaching, learning and assessment since the last inspection…their actions are driving up standards across the school.’ The full Inspection report can be viewed on the Ofsted website.
Madni Muslim Girls School is based in Savile Town, Dewsbury, providing education to children from the ages of 2 to 16. The school comprises an Early Years unit for 2-5 year olds, a primary school and a secondary girls’ school.
