The National Curriculum is delivered within an Islamic framework.
Islamic practises such as daily duaas, sunnats, etc. are promoted consistently. Likewise, Islamic calendar, Islamic terms, manners of greeting, attitudes and behaviour will be an integral part of the school day. Islamiat curriculum is taught daily by qualified Aalimahs under the guidance of the school Principal Mufti Abdullah Patel.
We aim to:
- Develop the whole personality of pupils; with Islam as the main focus of their lives.
- We aim for all our children to have mutual respect, kindness and consideration for others and recognise a variety of cultures, languages, experiences, needs, views and personal attributes within our school community.
- Provide a rich and rewarding environment within which pupils may benefit from a cross-curricular approach to Islamic education. We will provide a positive environment for learning based on praise and reward, which reinforces every child’s ability to work independently or as a team.
- Provide opportunity for each pupil to develop, and reach their full potential through the teachings and practice of Islam, so to enforce confidence in their identity as young Muslims.
- Provide each child with high standards of education which is broad and balanced; covering the core of religious, social, linguistic, mathematical, scientific, geographical, and physical knowledge and skills. We will work together to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum.
- Support the acquisition of general knowledge and skills, so to enhance personal growth and confidence.
- Promote dignity of each young person by teaching self-respect, respect for parents, elders and others, through the development of personal responsibility.
- Aid and assist each pupil to comprehend the complexity of the world in which they live, and that their own well-being is closely connected to the well-being of others. The school seeks to free pupils from all prejudice and inspire in them the universal values of equality and fairness.
- Ensure they enjoy their life at school, and develop a love for learning, and the strong desire to continue their education as a lifetime experience. Through inspirational teaching and learning experiences, we aim to enrich and maximise all aspects of development- academic, spiritual, social, creative, physical, personal, moral, and emotional.
- Encourage children to choose healthy lifestyle options; through guidance and role models.
- Motivate each child to acquire a moral attitude to life through conscientious awareness (Taqwa) and practise of Divine Guidance in all their affairs and transactions.
- The school curriculum is based on the National Curriculum with the exception of music. Nasheeds (Islamic songs without instruments) are played during assemblies. Animate objects - Pictures of animate objects especially during Art lessons are discouraged unless used for genuine educational content. Educational programmes are occasionally shown to pupils which help to enforce class-work and prove to be useful learning material.
- The Deputy Head and Teaching Assistants observe general teaching materials/lessons and guide non-Muslim Teachers away from inappropriate material as well as making them aware of good Islamic practises within the classroom.
If at any time you feel something needs to be brought to the attention of the school staff, please contact our Deputy Head or the School Principal and let us know of your concerns.
