According to Daily Mail, a private Muslim primary school has been shut down after pupils were deemed under threat of radicalisation and its owner, the head teacher’s husband, was once linked to funding Al Qaeda terrorism.
Birmingham Muslim School in Small Heath had been repeatedly criticised by Ofsted and its headteacher, Janet Laws, was temporarily banned from interacting with pupils because she was a ‘potential risk’ to them.
The Department of Education informed the school in November last year that it would be removed from the register of independent schools. As the school did not appeal the decision it was forced to close, with a date set for December 16.
In July 2019, Ofsted reported that Mrs Abdrabba had been temporarily banned from teaching after she was deemed at risk of ‘promoting views that undermine fundamental British values’.
