Ofsted has told the Court of Appeal that if it wins its sex discrimination appeal, it will re-visit all schools that keep boys and girls apart
Last November, the High Court cleared Al-Hijrah, an Islamic mixed-sex faith school in Birmingham, of operating an unlawful policy of segregating the sexes from Year 5.
Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman is appealing the verdict, as the watchdog believes Al-Hijrah's policy of segregating boys from girls amounts to direct sex discrimination.
