ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

PATHWAY TO ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

At Jaffaria Academy we offer a structured educational program for Years 1 to 10 GCSE (Year 10 starting Sep 2021).

Classes run Monday to Friday from 9am to 3:30pm. Our primary students have the option of ending their day at 1:30pm. This shorter day option will still cover the national curriculum but will exclude the optional academic clubs that run daily after lunch, from 2:30pm to 3:30pm (i.e. English Club, Maths Club, Science club and Computer Science club).

For more information on the timetables please contact us.

We follow the UK school term dates (September to July), and will accommodate elements of the Islamic Calendar (i.e. The holy month of Ramadhan, Day of Ashura)

We deliver the English National Curriculum in addition to Islamic education, the Holy Quran, and Arabic.

Our learning resources (syllabus) is sourced from the follow institutions:

  • Oxford University Press
  • Rising Stars
  • Hamilton Trust
  • Twinkl
  • MCE Tarbiyah Curriculum

Parents Support

At Jaffaria Academy we believe that parents are at the core of their children’s educational journey. We provide support to parents in various ways to help them be effective at their role which includes support to the academic aspect of their child’s education as well as other elements (explored further in the Wellbeing and Islamic Education sections of this website). We do this through various events, seminars, and workshops.

In the following section you can see some examples of the kind of support we provide which includes Parents Evenings twice a year, multiple feedback sessions, coffee mornings, academic workshops, and Podcast episodes dedicated to topics around education and the role of parents.

 

The Journey from KS3 to GCSE: An online workshop which aimed to help you understand your child’s journey from Year 7 to GCSE.
