School Description

Al-Risalah is an independent Muslim day school run by the Al-Risalah Education Trust. The Trust also runs a nursery school which has its own building (10 minutes’ walk away), and runs independently of the secondary school. The only commonality is the governing body. This inspection covered both the secondary and nursery schools. The secondary school is located in a converted cinema, and the nursery is housed in a renovated residential building. The secondary school is registered to admit 287 pupils. Currently there are 197 pupils who attend the school full time. Boys and girls are taught separately. None of the pupils has a statement of special educational needs and there are no children who are looked after. All pupils are Muslims, but are from a range of ethnic minority backgrounds. The school was last inspected in May 2012. Since then, there have been two changes in the headship. The current headteacher took up his post in September 2015, and has worked at the school for the last 10 years. In addition, four new teachers joined the school in 2014/15. The school does not make use of any offsite training. The school aims to ‘equip students with life skills in order to be role model citizens, ambassadors for Islam as well as good Muslims’. Information about the nursery school The nursery school accommodates 90 children (45 full-time equivalent), during the morning and afternoon sessions. All children attend the nursery for a total of 15 hours per week and are funded under the government’s nursery scheme. All children speak English as an additional language. There are no children with a statement of special educational needs. The school has identified 10 children who are most in need of support.
