يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). (Q. 49:13)
Our Muslim faith teaches us the importance of mutual respect for all people, regardless of difference. Equality of opportunity will be at the heart of our values as a school. We are against all forms of discrimination – whether that be on grounds of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, disability or age. We oppose all forms of intolerance towards any group, however manifested – including Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia or racism. We have zero tolerance of any form of discrimination or prejudice.
We will teach our pupils about the importance of respect, tolerance and community service. Our pupils will understand their responsibilities and learn about the importance of ‘giving something back’ to the community. Our staff model the sort of behaviours and attitudes we want our children to learn.
We will regularly review our systems and procedures to make sure they are fair for all pupils and enable all groups to make the sort of fantastic progress we want for all our pupils.
