Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
We are pleased to publisher out October Half term Newsletter for pupils and parents to see what the school has been doing during this term.

In the simplest of terms, anti-racism refers to actions which actively oppose all forms of racism. It is a commitment to fight against systems and behaviours that allow racism to continue. Unlike non-racism, anti-racism is about making an active, conscious effort, rather than just disapproving but remaining passive.
In fact, anti-racism acknowledges the fact that no one (of any race) is perfectly ‘non-racist’ – it would be impossible to be while we still grow up and live in a world where racism exists in many forms – but it gives us the tools to work both on ourselves and on society.
Inshallah, on Thursday 12th October our school is holding its annual 11-a-side football tournament. The event will be held at Springhill Recreation Ground from 8:15 am until 2:30pm.
Your son must arrive at the Ground at 8:15am and will leave from the park at 2:30pm.
If you are responsible for picking up pupils, you must pick them up from the Ground at 2:30pm and NOT from the school at 2:55pm.
Our students know where the Ground is from their school PE lessons. However, should you require further assistance, we have printed the post code of the park, as well as a map on the reverse side of this letter.
Please note, attendance at this event is compulsory. Failure to attend without a valid reason will lead to penalty charge as per School policy.
Your son can come attend in his PE kit or any similar sports clothing, but please ensure he is dressed modestly; we do NOT allow the wearing of shorts above the knee, or any clothing with inappropriate words or images. Please also ensure your son brings waterproof clothing in case it rains. In the event of very severe weather or any other unforeseen circumstances, the tournament shall be postponed until a future date inshallah.
You should provide your son with a pack-lunch which must of course be in line with the school’s healthy eating policy.
The carrying of mobile phones, hand-held games consoles or other similar equipment is strictly NOT allowed at the tournament unless there is a prior agreement with the school. If any pupil is found with any such item, it will be immediately confiscated and dealt with as per school policy. Furthermore, the school will NOT be held responsible if such items become lost or stolen, even AFTER their confiscation. I would also like to remind parents and pupils that the time of Asr salaah sets in quite early at this time of year, so all those who may not reach home in time to prayer their Zohr prayer are urged to carry with them a prayer mat and a bottle of water for wudhu. If you have any further inquiries, please contact me at the school.
Mr. OM Bilal Snell (Tournament coordinator)

As you may already know, our school encourages and promotes the use of bicycles as a healthy and eco-friendly mode of transportation. To celebrate this, we have organised a special breakfast for our young cyclists, where they can bring their bikes to school and enjoy a delicious meal along with their peers.
Not only will the students be treated to a scrumptious breakfast, but we will also have a team of experts on hand to service their bicycles. This will ensure that their bikes are in top condition, safe to ride, and ready to take on any challenge that comes their way.
