AN independent Muslim boys' boarding school has turned its fortunes around just two years after it was branded inadequate by Ofsted.

Darul Uloom Dawatul Imaan, Harry Street, off Tong Street, Bradford, was rated good in every category following a visit from the education watchdog in November.

Since the previous inspection in October 2015, there has been a restructuring of senior leadership, with the six members of the senior leadership team now having clearly defined roles, Ofsted said.

Inspectors outlined: "Following the previous standard inspection in October 2015, leaders have worked tirelessly to improve the school and now ensure that the school consistently meets the independent school standards.

"Leaders are passionate, enthusiastic and committed to continually improving the school.

"Leaders and directors are successfully improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in the school because they embrace opportunities to work with, and learn from, other school leaders. Through this, pupils are making more progress in most subjects, but there is further work to do to ensure that progress in science improves quickly."

The report also says pupils feel safe at school and make good progress from their starting points in most subjects.

"Leaders ensure that pupils' personal development and welfare is a priority at the school," the report outlines.

It adds: "Through Islamic studies, citizenship and religious studies, pupils learn how to stay safe and lead healthy lives. The school is rightly proud of the work it does to produce well-balanced citizens of the future."

The report praises pupils' behaviour and they are described as being respectful, polite and courteous. And it is said development of post-16 provision is "ensuring that a broader curriculum offer is now in place, which enables students to study vocational and academic qualifications which match their career aspirations".

Ofsted says the school must now "further improve the quality of leadership and management by developing the school's self-evaluation, so that leaders are astutely aware of what the school does well and what it can continue to develop".

It has also told the school to continue to develop the quality of teaching and learning.
