Year 1-6

Primary School

We cover aspects of the Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and other Prophets, pillars of Islam with a strong emphasis on Tajweed and Hifdh.

All the national curriculum subjects are taught with a greater emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. Greater use is made of specialist subjects such as Qur’an and Arabic. Both key stage 1 and 2 children are encouraged to read at home every evening and are given regular homework to consolidate their learning.
