How it started
The Association of Muslim Supplementary Schools was established in 2008 to coordinate the work of Muslim Supplementary Schools and share best practice in advancing the education of Muslim children in the United Kingdom. It is an organisation founded by the supplementary schools to serve the movement as a collective of supplementary schools.
There are over 2000 Muslim Supplementary schools in the United Kingdom (IPPRC 2011). Majority of the membership are part time supplementary schools operating evenings and weekends. Typically the curriculum provision includes Islamic study programmes, as well as support lessons for the National Curriculum subject areas within an Islamic values context and ethos.
