Summary: 

I am writing to you not only in your capacity as Secretary of State for Education but also as Minister for Women and Equalities. As you know, I wrote to you on 24 November 2015 to raise serious concerns about the segregation of staff and governors in independent schools. I am writing again to report that Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) continue to find that staff are being segregated because of their gender in Muslim independent schools.
