Closed Derby free school to re-open on Monday

The Al-Madinah free school in Derby has announced it will re-open on Monday, after it closed due to a 'Health and Safety' issue on Tuesday this week.

Reports had suggested the school had been closed by an Ofsted Inspection Team, but the Interim Principal of the school claimed on the school's website that this was not the case.

Unsurprisingly, there has been a number of rumours circulating. While unfortunate, my decision to close the school related to a short-term Health and Safety issue that has now been completely resolved and will not reoccur.

Our closure was not the result of our Ofsted Inspection Team deciding to close Al-Madinah School, now or in the future. The full findings of the Inspection Team will be published by Ofsted, in accordance with the time-scales laid down by them for all schools, which will be in the next few weeks.
