“Pupils are polite and courteous and show great care and respect for each other. They are very confident, self-disciplined and self-motivated learners who are proud of their achievements. The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils’ behaviour around the school is exemplary. They show much kindness and respect to each other. The behaviour records show very few incidents of poor behaviour.” Ofsted 2017
As a school, as well as playing a vital role in our student’s academic development, we also play a significant role in their social development. Our aim is to create an environment where students may work purposefully, feel secure, happy and confident and where relationships between staff and students and between students themselves are based on Islamic values of mutual respect and tolerance.
Beyond this, we hope to instil in our students a respectful behaviour towards parents, elders, siblings, relatives and the wider society.
Reward and Encouragement is key!
Overall we believe in the importance of encouragement being central for the cultivation of good conduct, self-esteem and self-discipline. While there are sanctions for misbehaviour, we believe that positive reinforcement is more effective to motivate students to conduct themselves in a polite and exemplary manner.
Rewards, recognition and praise must be given at any opportunity where a student displays exemplary behaviour. House Points are rewarded regularly to students who fit into this category.
Students are encouraged to keep a record of their achievements both in and out of school. Students have the opportunity to partake in many courses and experiences such as a trip abroad to Spain, LAMDA and various other courses. The school encourages students to participate in as many of experiences as possible which will teach the students fundamental skills such as leadership, teamwork and confidence which will positively impact the school and their behaviour.
In every Form group there is an opportunity for leadership and teamwork. Each Form will elect a Prefect, a member of the Student Council and a Representative from each House.
Through positive reinforcement and giving students responsibility across the Form groups, they will be encouraged to look for opportunities to show maturity and care of the school environment.
