Parents with children at the Al-Madinah free school in Derby will meet with the school trust later on today, after Friday's shock announcement that the secondary part of the school will close.

The school, which was described as 'chaotic and dysfunctional' by Ofsted, will stop teaching the older students at the end of the summer term.

The issue is also due to be discussed in the House of Commons today.
