Islamic Education is delivered in three ways: through dedicated lessons, through our Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) curriculum, and throughout the School day through our emphasis on tarbiyya.
More information on the LOtC curriculum and tarbiyya provision can be found on dedicated pages. Below is more information about our dedicated Islamic Education subjects:
RE in Years 7 and 8 focusses primarily on Islam and teaching pupils the basics of Fiqh, Aqidah and Hadith, as well as looking at some themes across religions. In GCSE, we follow the exam board course structure, with Islam as the main religion taught.
Living Islam is a blended subject, covering Sirah, Islamic history, Tafseer and Hadith. These are intertwined and presented to pupils in a way to interest pupils and relate these topics to their daily lives.
Quran is taught in Year 7 to 9, starting with ensuring that all people know the basics, for example, their prayer, daily du’as and kalimahs. We then move onto the shorter surahs of the Quran and then the more commonly recited ones, with memorization and a brief study of their tafseer so that pupils can gain a better understanding of the Quran.
