Crisis-hit Muslim school bailed out with state funding
by Tim Ross
A Muslim school has been given state funding to save it from closure.
Teachers at Iqra primary in Brixton have been working for free because of a cash crisis. But now it has received £250,000 from Lambeth council and joined the state sector.
It has become one of six state-funded Muslim primaries in England. Pupils will follow the national curriculum but have lessons in Quranic studies and be taught in accordance with their beliefs.
