Jamiatul Ummah in top 50 Schools in the UK



Jamiatul Ummah is committed to offer a broad and balanced curriculum within the Islamic ethos. Our students have never been taught or exposed to ideas which would encourage them to disregard the laws of England and Wales.

Our position in respect to extremism is very clear; we condemn all forms of extremism unequivocally and this is recognised by Ofsted.

‘The policy is very clear about the school’s commitment to provide a curriculum that will produce good role models in society; the essential knowledge that students need to be educated citizens in democratic Britain; and promote an awareness of and respect for a diversity of cultures, values, beliefs and abilities’.

Furthermore, Ofsted continues,

‘Inspectors found no evidence to support the promotion of extremist views or radicalisation of students or staff. To the contrary, the students and staff present well-informed and positive views about the role of British Muslims and their responsibilities within the local community’.

We recognise the concerns raised by Ofsted in respect of three books in the library, however, as Ofsted rightly noted, the library is locked and current students have no access to it. Ofsted also recognised that the content of these books, ‘do not reflect the schools ethos of tolerance and integration’. Nevertheless, we are taking steps, and are at present auditing all materials in the library and those available within the school.

Jamitaul Ummah is a high performing school, and has consistently been at the top of the Tower Hamlets league table. The mosque is not part of the school and our students have separate provisions for performing prayers. We are managed by an independent board of governors, and cannot therefore possibly comment on which speakers may have been invited by and have attended the mosque.

I’d like to congratulate and thank every student for his efforts in achieving immaculate results that would make any and every school proud.” He thanked parents, the staff, management and supporters for their relentless sense of purpose and cooperation. “The staff have been amazingly resilient in the face of unprecedented pressures placed on our faith school this year.”

Sheikh Abu Sayeed, the Chairman of Jamiatul Ummah board of trustees, was most impressed with the results and said, ‘Dawatul Islam strives towards excellence in Education and Jamiatul Ummah is the best example of that.’ He wishes continuous success for Jamiatul Ummah in the future.

The Chairman of the Governing Body, Mr Shabbir Kawsar, also congratulated students and praised staff for the hard work and loyalty to the organisation.  He also expressed gratitude to parents for their trust and ongoing support for the school.

Ofsted Report 2014

Jamiatul Ummah (JU) School was the subject of an unannounced OFSTED inspection over three days in the early part of October 2014

Unfortunately, the OFSTED inspectors have downgraded JU from an outstanding school to inadequate.

It goes without saying, that both the School Leadership Team and the Governing Body are profoundly disappointed by the report......
