Rt Hon Sir Stephen Timms MP (East Ham)

I have been in contact with ICSS since 2005, and I was proud to accept appointment as patron.

Thanks to an impressive team of committed volunteer teachers, ICSS provides effective supplementary schooling, and is building good citizenship among the children who attend. It encourages students to be creative, teaches them about charity and helps them think about future possibilities and their future careers. It is building bridges between Muslims and the rest of the local community – not least through their popular annual barbecue, which I enjoy attending

I welcome ICSS’s contribution in building cohesion in our community and helping to improve it. I have seen the school go from strength to strength, and believe it deserves strong support from the community.

I am happy to support and encourage ICSS; their efforts to support our schools in the work of raising attainment levels benefits the whole community.
