The Curriculum

THE CURRICULUM

The school provides the following areas of learning for every child:

  • English – speaking and listening, reading, writing, handwriting, spelling.
  • Mathematics – number calculations, shape, space, measurement, handling data and problem solving.
  • Religious Studies – the aim of the Religious Studies (Islamic Studies) is for our children to inherit and develop the Muslim Tarbiyyah that the ethos of Leicester Islamic Academy portrays.

    Within the Religious Studies curriculum, children are taught about the Seerah as well as the World Religions. Therefore, we aim to provide all our children with the stimulus to be open-hearted and broadminded. These attitudes are for life, not just for school, and they equip our children to live in our plural city and in a wider world of diversity. This also allows them to understand the need for these agreed values and codes of behaviour in and around the school and the diverse community we live in. In addition, it helps adults and children to work together harmoniously. Through studying the topics in our syllabus, we also have cross-curricular links to PSHE (personal, social, health education) and citizenship. This enables our children to carry the Islamic belief, practices and values with the guidance from the Qur’an and the Sunnah in their everyday lives. The values help them understand that they can expect others to treat their needs, views, cultures and beliefs with respect and they, in turn, should learn to value and respect other people’s different views and ideas.
