Curriculum Aims

Nursery

The National Curriculum is delivered with an Islamic ethos. Islamic practices such as daily duaas, sunnats, Islamic terms, manners of greeting, attitudes and behaviour are promoted and developed in each child consistently. This forms an integral part of the nursery day.

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 nursery setting.

  • 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 group.

  • 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 quality standards of education which is broad and balanced; covering the core of religious, social, linguistic, mathematical, scientific, geographical, and physical knowledge and skills. We work together to meet the statutory requirements for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

  • 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 nursery seeks to free pupils from all prejudice and inspire in them the universal values of equality and fairness.

  • Ensure they enjoy their time at Nursery, 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.

  • Support the acquisition of general knowledge and skills, so to enhance personal growth and confidence.

  • 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.
