The interim headteacher of Al-Madinah school in Derby has said he and his staff accept the damning Ofsted report "with a heavy heart," but that they are determined to make improvements.
He admitted that some "basic" systems were not in place, but that progress was being made every day and that parents were supportive.
Asked about previous allegations of female staff being required to wear the hijab and boys and girls being separated in classes, he said these issued - "if they ever existed" - had now been resolved.
