dress code Banner

It is our strong belief that every culture and religion has its distinct identity. As such attending this course provides an excellent opportunity to express our own outward Islamic identity and belonging as a Muslim.

We expect all our students to wear uniform at all times unless special permission is given.  Our school uniform is:

  • Abaya: Plain black loose garment closed at front (non button abaya) which reaches below the ankle.
  • Shawl (scarf): Maroon coloured (which will be provided by the academy at a minimal cost) hair, back and chest must be completely covered and the scarf securely fastened.
  • Sweaters, Cardigans and Jackets: Must be of solid colour free from  wordings or logos (Leather, pleather or jean materials will not be permitted)

The clothing under the jilbaab should be according to the Shariah. Please note; make-up may not be worn in school and outdoor clothing may not be worn in classrooms.  Pupils are not allowed to wear:

  • Shirts
  • Short skirts, or leggings (Leggings can only be worn under a long loose skirt or dress)
  • Dangling items of jewellery

attendance and punctuality

Good attendance is essential if your daughter is to get the best out of her education. Regular attendance ensures School work is always up-to-date and higher standards of education can be achieved.

Students who are not in the school by 8.30 a.m. will be marked late. If students are regularly late, they will be placed on an attendance report and the parents/guardians will be contacted.

Parents are requested to send in a note if their daughter has been absent. Please include the following information in the note:

– Name of your daughter.

-Dates of absence.

-Reason for absence.

If your daughter is likely to be absent for more than a day, please send in a note of explanation as soon as possible or contact the school by telephone. Even if you let the school know about your daughter’s absence, still send in an absence note.

Please try to make appointments outside school hours.

If you intend to take a family holiday during term-time, you must complete a holiday form and return it to the office. There is no entitlement to leave during term-time unless authorised by the Head Teacher. If leave is given and the pupil fails to return by the approved date then they may be taken off the admissions register. Parents are strongly advised to discuss term-time holidays with the Headteacher before booking any holidays.


If a student is ill or has an accident in school and needs to come home, we will contact the parents.  Please make sure that the school is provided with an emergency contact number and that the school is informed if the number changes.

If a pupil is taking medication during school hours, the medication should be left at the main office.

lunch time

All students are encouraged to bring in a healthy lunch consisting of fruits and vegetables.We will leave the menu to the discretion of each family but if any student is continually bringing unhealthy food the parents will be contacted.

Our facility is nut free, please do not send your child to school with any nuts.

rewards and sanctions2

We encourage good behaviour and a positive attitude towards work. Students who produce good work, show respect for the teachers, their peers and attend school regularly and punctually will be given recognition. Certificates will be awarded for good attendance.

Sanctions will apply to pupils who continually misbehave and break school rules. The following behaviour will not be tolerated:

  • Habitual lateness.
  • Disruption in lessons.
  • Failure to do homework.
  • Rudeness to staff and to other students
  • Bullying.
  • Theft.
  • Fighting.
  • Vandalism.
  • Not wearing school uniform.
  • Chewing gum.

Sanctions include detentions, behaviour and attendance reports and litter collection. Serious incidents of misbehaviour may result in suspension and ultimately, permanent exclusion.

The school expects to be actively supported by parents on disciplinary matters.

Homework and Personal Planners

All students are expected to do some homework. The amount of homework set will vary depending on the year of study, subject and time of examination. Planners are issued to all students and homework should be recorded in the planner. Parents are requested to check and sign the planner every day.

It is our aim to enter all pupils for all examination courses they are studying. However, in the case of poor attendance, low ability and in the event of a pupil not completing the coursework requirements, she may be withdrawn from a particular examination. Problems about examination entry will be fully discussed with the pupil and the parents.

Students will receive a full report every year. Parent’s teacher meetings will be held during the course of the year and parents will get a chance to speak to the teachers about the progress of their child.

If the school is concerned with a student’s progress, the parents will be informed and a meeting will be arranged to discuss this. If you wish to meet one of the staff, please call and make an appointment. If you arrive without an appointment, you may not be seen.
