Summary: 

An Islamic school that hosted radical clerics and segregated teachers by gender is accused today by the Charity Commission of mismanagement and misconduct. The regulator expressed concern that the Rabia Educational Trust, which caters for 128 pupils and charges up to £2,300 a year, had failed to protect pupils from potentially harmful views. Ofsted has inspected Rabia girls’ and boys’ school in Luton four times since 2014 but it continues to fail to meet educational and management standards and remains under regulatory action by the schools inspectorate. The commission today publishes the findings of a 13-month statutory inquiry.
