School Description

Hafs Academy is an independent day school with a Muslim ethos. It is located in a residential area of Stratford in the local authority of Newham. The premises consist of a commercial building converted for educational use. The school makes use of a local park for pupils’ social times and the teaching of PE. The school is registered to provide education for pupils from the ages of seven to 16. Currently, the school is providing education for boys aged 11 to 16. Since the previous full inspection, the registration authority granted a material change request for the school to admit pupils to Year 10 and Year 11. The first cohort of these pupils joined the school in Inspection report: Hafs Academy, 11–13 December 2018 Page 10 of 14 September 2018. There are currently no primary-aged pupils on roll. The school’s provision for primary pupils closed earlier this year. A new headteacher joined the school in September 2018. The previous headteacher remains at the school as a member of the senior leadership team. The school’s last full standard inspection took place in December 2016, when it was judged inadequate. The school submitted an action plan, which was evaluated in April 2017 and was not approved. In October 2017, a progress monitoring inspection judged that the previously unmet standards were met. In June 2018, Ofsted conducted an additional inspection at the request of the registration authority to consider the school’s application for a material change to include a new key stage 4. This inspection found that the school is likely to meet the relevant independent school standards if the material change was approved by the registration authority. The school does not make use of any alternative provision. The school aims to: ‘provide a safe, peaceful and well-organised environment for pupils to receive a broad, balanced curriculum based on the national curriculum, through the teaching of, and practice of, Islam.’ Inspection report: Hafs Academy, 11–13 December 2018 Page 11 of 14 Information about this inspection This full standard inspection was conducted with one day’s notice. Inspectors met with leaders and trustees and checked a range of documentation, including school policies, safeguarding records, behaviour logs and the admissions register. Inspectors visited classrooms and looked at samples of pupils’ work across a range of subjects, including English, mathematics, art, citizenship, PE and Islamic studies. Inspectors also visited tutorial sessions provided as part of the school’s PSHE programme. Inspectors toured the premises and checked health and safety records. They also observed pupils’ behaviour around the school site, including at social times. The views of pupils were taken into account through three meetings with pupils, as well as informal discussions throughout the inspection. Too few responses were received through Parent View for meaningful analysis. One written comment was considered. There were no responses to Ofsted’s survey for staff. Inspectors took into account the views of staff through a meeting with teachers and through informal discussions.
