A group of parents at the troubled Al-Madinah school in Derby have come out in support of the school.
They criticised the negative media coverage that the school has received saying that:
Positive elements of the school have not been highlighted... it would seem that the media get the information [regarding the negative Ofsted report] before the school does.
They also said that they would like to be considered before the Department of Education make any changes to the structure of the leadership at the school.
However this group do not speak for all parents at the school with others having recently chosen to remove their children from Al-Madinah school following the revelations of poor performance in the recent Ofsted report .
