Our goal is to create a fun and safe learning environment that engages our students aged 5 to 16 years. We recognise that some children may not have previously received any Islamic education. This should not be a barrier to joining our school! We will adopt a flexible approach, supporting and encouraging every student whatever their age and starting point.
We have a robust curriculum that provides students with a solid foundation in authentic and traditional Islamic principles and practice. We teach using a series of structured textbooks and corresponding workbooks which are age appropriate. The highly regarded Safar Publication syllabus has been carefully chosen as it is informative, creative and designed to facilitate children’s interest. The learning goals, language and images of each book are therefore appropriate to the student’s age and designed to maximise learning.
Our curriculum extends beyond Islamic education. Integrated within it, is the development of skills that will assist students with their mainstream education. These include confidence building, learning discipline, note taking and presentations. We also develop their life skills to support them with modern life. These include include mental health awareness, physical health education, social media use and awareness of the need to positively contribute to society.
In addition, our experienced teaching team supports students to become comfortable and confident in their identity as British Muslims. Emphasis is placed on respect for individuals, the environment and the wider community.
It is important to highlight that parents have a very important role to play to reinforce the learnings at home through leading by example and providing additional coaching using the books provided.
