How we promote and develop Children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural wellbeing.
- Pupils are encouraged to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life.
- Children are giving opportunities to have an interest in, and respect for; different people’s faiths, feelings and values.
- A sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them is key.
- Opportunities are made for children to be imaginative and creative in their learning and show a willingness to reflect on their experiences.
At IQRA Academy pupils and staff work together to create a fun and happy learning environment. We like to provide children with experiences that will prepare children for life in modern Britain.
Educational visits offer children opportunities to be imaginative and creative in their learning. At IQRA Academy pupils are given the opportunity to experience and have fun in different social settings. Every year parents are invited into school to take part in activities with their children.
- Pupils recognise the difference between right and wrong and readily apply this understanding in their own lives and, in so doing, respect the civil and criminal law of England.
- Children understand the consequences of their behaviour and actions.
- Children are actively encouraged to investigate and offer reasoned views about moral and ethical issues, and are able to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others on these issues.
Pupils behaviour at IQRA Academy is celebrated through a range of activities which also include parents.
- Pupils use a range of social skills in different contexts including; working and socialising with pupils from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
- Children participate in a variety of community and social settings, including; volunteering, cooperating well with others and being able to resolve conflicts effectively.
- Children have the ability to use modern communication technology including; mobile technology, the internet and social media, safely.
- Pupils are taught the fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Pupils also develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in, and contribute positively to, life in modern Britain.
As a school we contribute to our community through donations from pupils, families, governors and staff which are distributed to our local food banks.
We provide opportunities to link with schools from different backgrounds.
- Children have an understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own heritage and that of others.
- Pupils understanding and appreciation of the range of different cultures within the academy, and further afield, as an essential element of their preparation for life in modern Britain is promoted.
- Pupils understand Britain’s democratic parliamentary system and its central role in shaping our history and values, and in continuing to develop Britain.
- Pupils have a willingness to participate in and respond positively to: artistic, sporting and cultural opportunities.
- An interest in exploring, improving understanding of, and showing respect for, different faiths and cultural diversity is adopted.
- Children understand about acceptance, respect and celebration of diversity, as shown by their tolerance and attitudes towards different religious, ethnic and socio-economic groups in the local, national and global communities.
At IQRA Academy we celebrate the festivals of all religions. Every year we also participate in artistic and musical activities to enhance our understanding of other cultures.
We celebrate different religions and beliefs in fun and exciting ways. Children in Year 3 visited a Gurdwara as part of their RE work on Places of worship.
