A BRADFORD secondary school "fails to give necessary attention to potential risks posed by extremism," according to a report published today.

Ofsted inspectors visited Carlton Bolling College last month over concerns on how the secular state school was being governed, and the watchdog has now released its findings - which see the school downgraded from "good" at its last inspection to "inadequate."

It says "leadership is hindered by some ill-judged decisions" and that a third of staff the inspectors spoke to said it was not well managed.

The school in Undercliffe has a large majority of Muslim students, but also a minority of non-Muslim and Eastern European pupils.

The report states: "Students and staff are not educated through the curriculum or training well enough to understand, respond to or calculate potential risks associated with extreme or radical.

It adds that some governors have exerted pressure to restrict the curriculum and pushed for "restricting religious education courses to the study of Islam".

Inspectors were told that some Eastern European students at the school had been called names they regarded as racist.

It calls for an "immediate review of governance" to allow the school to improve.

Bradford Council has asked the Department for Education to allow it to replace the governing body with an Interim Executive Board.
