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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Noor ul Islam Primary School follows The National Curriculum for Primary Schools in England.
The subjects we cover are:
Design & Technology / Food Technology
Creative Performing Arts
Personal Social & Health Education
Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning
In addition, we teach Islamic Studies, Qur’an, Tajweed and Arabic.
We also offer an optional Qur’an Hifdh class.
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.
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.
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.
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 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:
The school strongly advocates healthy eating. Chocolates, chewing gum, fizzy drinks and sweets are not permitted.
