A CHAREDI school in Stamford Hill remains open, six months after the Department for Education called for it to be shut down.

Unregistered independent school Talmud Torah Tashbar was criticised in February for failing to meet “minimum standards required” and promoting “cultural and ethnic insularity” owing to a curriculum “almost exclusively rooted in the study of the Torah”.
