School Description

This is an Islamic school for boys and girls. The school is registered for 81 pupils aged 6 to 16; there are currently 120 on roll aged 5 to 14. The school plans to provide education for Year 10 pupils next year, and Year 11 in September 2020. The school was last inspected in October 2016 when it was judged to be inadequate. The inspection judged that the school did not met The Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and associated requirements. Pupils come from a range of cultural backgrounds and speak English as an additional language. The school does not have any pupils who have special needs or an education, health and care plan. The school does not use alternative providers. Inspection report: The School of the Islamic Republic of Iran, 25–27 September 2018 Page 7 of 13 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed teaching and learning in lessons across all year groups and subjects. Some of these were jointly observed with school leaders. Inspectors looked at arrangements at break and lunchtimes. Samples of pupils’ work were scrutinised. Discussions were held with senior leaders, including governors, teachers and pupils. A range of documentation and policies were scrutinised, including records of pupils’ behaviour and attendance, assessment information, complaints procedures and the vetting checks the school makes to ensure that staff are suitable. Inspectors reviewed records, policies and procedures relating to safeguarding. No parents responded to Ofsted’s online survey.
