School Description

Cardiff Muslim Primary School is an independent day school, educating boys and girls from the ages of 4 to 11 years. The school was founded in 2006 and is a limited company, owned by Cardiff Muslim Primary School Ltd. The school is managed by a board of trustees and a new chair of the board was elected in April 2014. The school has a Muslim ethos and the curriculum includes the teaching of Arabic, the Qur’an and Islamic Studies. The school accepts pupils of all faiths and none. Currently, all pupils and staff follow the Islamic faith. The school is situated close to the centre of the city of Cardiff in premises that had formerly housed a maintained primary school. There are currently 106 pupils in the school, including 59 pupils in the Foundation Phase and 47 pupils in key stage 2. There are currently six classes in the school with a mixed age class in years 5 and 6. Most pupils live in Cardiff and the surrounding area. Many pupils join the school at different stages either from other schools or from overseas. The school operates through the medium of English although very few pupils speak English as their first language at home. Almost all pupils come from minority ethnic groups, with the majority from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Their home languages include Arabic, Bengali, Somali, Urdu and a range of Pakistani dialects. About 17% of pupils receive support in learning English as an additional language. No pupils speak Welsh at home and the school does not include Welsh language teaching in the curriculum. Pupils are interviewed by the headteacher for admission to the school. Pupils who enter the school have a wide range of ability. The school identifies about 8% of pupils as having special educational needs. There are no pupils with a statement of special educational needs. The school was last inspected by Estyn in May 2008. The headteacher was appointed in September 2013.
