JMS1kiddz's curator insight, October 23, 2013 9:28 AM

Most people listen to music every single day and some people prefer their music to be enhanced by a good set of speakers. Furniture is not the only thing that can be made of wood these timbre speakers prove exactly that. Despite being a block of wood as some would see it, these speakers remain elegant and clean in design.

5 reasons the Middle East is the next big mobile market | UAL | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that the majority of countries in the Middle East consume goods and services more than they produce them, leaving many Arab countries dependent on the products we import from China, Europe and the rest of the world, ...

Al-Madinah free school parents 'had doubts' before Ofsted report

Al-Madinah free school parents 'had doubts' before Ofsted report | UAL | Scoop.it

More than 60 parents had asked Derby City Council about moving their children out of the Al-Madinah free school before a damning Ofsted report was released, the BBC has learned.

The figures pre-date the report, which said the school was failing in all areas and was "dysfunctional".

Enquiries were made by 67 parents, with 33 making formal applications to put their children elsewhere.

The school said it accepted the findings and would use them to move on.

On Thursday, Dr Stuart Wilson, the acting head teacher, said there were serious problems at the school and accepted some of the lessons were not meeting necessary standards.

The Ofsted report said teachers at Al-Madinah were inexperienced and had not been provided with proper training and that the school required special measures.

'Fix everything'

Parent Razwana Bibiakbar said she would not be taking her child out of the school but added that it had let the pupils down.


Are free schools succeeding?Of England's 24 first free schools, three-quarters were rated good or outstanding by OfstedFour - outstanding14 - goodFive - require improvementOne - Discovery New School, West Sussex - inadequate

She said: "Something has to be done [like bringing] new leadership, new team, new staff - qualified - into Al-Madinah school to run it properly.

"Why should I pull my daughter out of that school? Why can't they pull their socks up and fix everything?"

The Ofsted inspection had been due to take place by the end of the year but was prioritised following initial allegations that female teachers were obliged to wear hijabs and boys and girls were segregated.

David Cameron told BBC Radio Derby on Thursday that the Al-Madinah situation should not be used as a stick with which to beat the whole free school movement.
