Statement on behalf of the Al-Hijrah interim executive board:
“Interim Executive Board (IEB) members and the executive head teacher have met the acting head teacher of Al-Hijrah at the school premises. There has also been a staff meeting at the school and a management meeting between the leadership teams of both schools.
“The chair of the IEB, executive head teacher and senior council officers last night met parents at the school to update them and listen to their concerns. The executive head teacher and his team will now be working alongside Al-Hijrah staff in the school. The chair of the IEB has written to parents expressing his commitment to Al-Hijrah and its Islamic ethos and working together to ensure the highest educational standards. The new leadership of the school showed their commitment to the parent community both by making sure there are regular means of communication with all parents and by the establishment of a parent consultative group.”
