Within our community, there is a lack of Islamic special needs provisions available therefore we have made a commitment to provide those children with the support they desperately need. We aim to embed Islamic values and etiquette which may be otherwise missed and forgotten amongst mainstream education إن شاء الله تعالى.

In conjunction with the Local Authority, our Centre for Exceptional Children will focus on supporting students with Educational, Health and Care Plans (EHCP), formerly known as a Statement of Special Educational Needs. 

Staff

Staff

The centre will cater to 20 students over two classrooms, with a class ratio of 3 staff to ten students as a minimum. We also have Speech and Language Therapists, and Occupational Therapists assessing the students on a termly basis, and staff will use these reports to ensure students are making maximum progress.

Support

Support

Students will enrol with us already having an EHCP in place therefore staff will follow a special learning programme tailored for each individual student. As students will be working in much smaller groups, care and observation will take place to ensure extra encouragement is provided as necessary. Staff will also empower students by aiding their communication skills with their peers, other teachers and colleagues, which will aid their progression pathway.

Autonomy

Autonomy

Being an independent school, we have the autonomy to allow for a creative, bespoke curriculum الحمد لله. The National Early Years Curriculum is used, with added Islamic Studies, Arabic and Quran Recitation classes offered as standard. Students have Quran classes daily, teaching the alphabet to joining letters to sound out words; to memorisation of duas and short surahs.

As parents we are responsible for providing our children, not only with good education but more importantly an understanding of the most important values and principles to the excellent way of life that is Islam. We all strive to Please Allah, and we supplicate to Him Alone that our children strive forward in this way.
The Prophet Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) also said: “Each of you is a shepherd and responsible for his flock…”
