Safeguarding

Noor ul Islam Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. Everyone working in or for our school shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:

• Providing a safe environment for children to learn and develop in our school setting.

• Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in our school setting.

Please also see our Safeguarding policy in the ‘School Policies’ section.

Internet Safety

Our school approach to E-safety is focused around the acronym SMART

 

S – Safe – never pass on your personal information to anyone you don’t know.

M- Meet – never meet anyone on-line you don’t know in real life!

A- Accept – never accept friend requests/emails/files/rewards from people you don’t know in real life, likewise avoid accepting any emails from suspicious sources.

R- Reliable -make sure you check the information you have gathered is reliable by checking through alternative sources both on-line and off line.

T- Tell someone if anything worries you or concerns you about any aspect of your experience on line.

Advice for parents

As parents and teachers we are always protective of our children but are we aware of the possible dangers of the internet? Here are a few tips to follow in order to keep our children safe on the internet;

 

Be in control

Make use of the parental controls on your home broadband and any internet-enabled devices. You can find out how at your broadband provider’s website or by visiting internetmatters.org.

 

Search Safely

Use safe search engines such as swiggle.org or kids-search.com. Safe search settings can also be activated on Google and other search engines as well as YouTube. You can find out more at google.co.uk/safetycentre.

Agree boundaries

Be clear what your child can and can’t do online – where they can use the internet, how much time they can spend online, the sites they can visit and the type of information they can share. Agree with your child when they can have a mobile device or tablet.

 

Explore together

The best way to find out what your child is doing online is to ask them to tell you about it. Put the family computer in a communal area so you can see what sites they’re visiting.

 

Check if it’s suitable

The age ratings that come with games and apps are a good guide to whether they are suitable for your child. The minimum age limit is 13 for several social networking sites, including Facebook and Instagram.

For further reading please refer to the following booklet produced by the UK council for child internet safety.

Assessments and reports

Children in Year 2 and Year 6 sit end of key stage assessments (SATS). Pupils in Early Years complete the EYFS curriculum by the end of the summer term. All other year groups have regular assessments including an end of year external assessment (GL assessments) to help teachers evaluate the progress of pupils. 

Parents will receive an annual report about their children’s strengths, progress and achievements and be informed about any gaps in their children’s progress and ways that they can help. Reports will focus on how well the child is progressing in terms of becoming secure in their learning. 

Curriculum Maps 2020-2021 

Below are the Curriculum Maps/Long Term Plans for all year groups. They provide information about what the pupils of  Noor Ul Islam Primary School will be studying over the coming academic year. 

Year 1

Year 2

Year 3

Year 4

Year 5

Year 6

Islamic Studies

Arabic Language

Pupils make strong progress throughout the school, especially in mathematics. In 2017, the proportion of Year 6 and Year 2 pupils that attained above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics was high. Standards are high because leaders, governors, teachers and parents expect all pupils to work hard, achieve well and be successful.

(Ofsted 2018)

Learning Journeys

At Noor Ul Islam Primary School we believe it is hugely beneficial for children and parents to be aware of what they are learning. Therefore we have created these Learning Journeys to paint a unique picture of what a child knows and can do. 

At the beginning of each year parents will receive a learning journal for the year that details the expected objectives that their child should meet by the end of that academic year. 

The Learning Journey will also be used by pupils in school to self-assess and plan their learning effectively over the course of the year. This approach of giving children control and oversight of their learning is key in developing their ‘metacognition’ skills and has been shown to have a major impact on their success at school.

Below are the copies of the Learning Journeys for each year group.

School Dinners

School dinners are £14.00 per week and freshly cooked by HMC certified caterers. E-mails will be sent out with information how to book and pay for school dinners. You may either pay for the entire half-term or choose which weeks you would like your child to have school dinners. Please note: there are no refunds for absences (including trips).

 

All pupils must bring a refillable water bottle to school in addition to any other drink, enabling them access to fresh drinking water throughout the day. This is not only much more hygienic but also ensures pupils can independently refill their own bottles especially at break and lunch time when plastic cups are not always readily available. Can we also remind parents that although it is not compulsory to bring in a snack for break time, we do recommend sending in two pieces of fruit or a healthy snack whether your child has school dinners or packed lunch. Please note that unfortunately our pupils are not encouraged to share their snacks with one another due to allergies.

Your child’s daily school food routine will be as follows: 

  • A light snack in the morning break. 
  • A balanced meal at lunch time. 
  • Another small snack for afternoon break for EYFS and Key Stage 1. 

The school strongly advocates healthy eating. Chocolates, chewing gum, fizzy drinks and sweets are not permitted. 

 

We are a nut free school, therefore refrain from giving your child nuts/nut containing snacks as this is hazardous for other children with allergies.
