Pupils at the school are banned from watching television, listening to the radio or reading newspapers. They are also being taught to avoid speaking to the media.
Despite that, the education watchdog gave the school a ‘good’ rating in its latest inspection and explained how pupils are ‘dedicated to their Islamic studies’.
…Sky News obtained copies of documents given to parents which said pupils ‘socialising with outsiders…will be expelled if there is no improvement after cautioning.’
The school’s Pupil and Parent Handbook contains a Sharia section which lists ‘Items that are prohibited in Islam…such as portable televisions, cameras, etc’.
