Summary: 

A private Muslim school has been forced to change its curriculum, overhaul teaching standards and improve child safety following a Sky News investigation. Education watchdog Ofsted served a statutory notice on the Institute of Islamic Education in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, after its strict Sharia code for pupils was made public, including the threat of expulsion for mixing with outsiders. Documents handed out to parents warned that boarders were forbidden from watching TV, listening to music, or reading newspapers, while pupils were taught not to speak to the media. The school, which is run by the secretive Deobandi sect, has now been told it is meeting the required standards, but it has no website and it is unclear whether the policies are still in place.
