ADMISSIONS POLICY – 2020-2021
IQRA Foundation was established in 2017 to promote the Islamic education of children over the age of 4. The teaching will take place in a Madrassah environment between the hours of 5:15pm and 6:45 pm.
IQRA aims to inspire our children in a way where the teaching and love of Islam becomes a part of who they are. All children will be taught in accordance with the teachings of the Sunni Muslim faith and therefore preference is given to those of this faith.
However, this is only a preference and we are fully committed to equal opportunities in education. IQRA will not discriminate against any child on the basis of race, creed, colour, nationality or ethnic origin.
Intake for 2020-21
The admission number for the new intake in September 2020 will be 20
In order to enrol, parents are required to submit a completed application form together with a valid copy of the child’s Birth Certificate or Passport.
All applications MUST be in writing; any form of verbal communication will not be accepted.
The admission criteria for the year 2020-2021 will be as follows:
Association to IQRA
This is where the parent/s of the child are either employed by IQRA or associated with IQRA in a management capacity.
There is a preference in respect of the siblings of current pupils at IQRA. Please note that the child MUST be living at the same address as the current pupil and be either a brother / sister, half brother / sister, adopted brother / sister, step brother / sister of the current pupil.
Remaining places are allocated according to where a child lives. Those living nearest to the preferred school by a straight line (radial) measure will have priority.
The closing date for applications for the academic year 2020-2021 will be 31st August 2020.
False or misleading Information
Any special circumstances regarding the child MUST be disclosed prior to admission, e.g.
a) The child is an orphan or a foster child.
b) The child suffers from a serious medical condition or disability.
c) The child is dyslexic or has any learning or behavioural issues.
Providing any false or misleading information may invalidate the application/ admission and can result in dismissal.
If the child is allowed to continue at the school, even though the information was false, their sibling/s will not be given priority for place/s under the admissions criteria.
If a place is not immediately available, the parents may wish to register their child on the Waiting List. We cannot guarantee when or if the child may be granted a place.
The Waiting List will be arranged according to the criteria above and, if and when a place becomes available, the child at the top of the list will be offered a place first.
Unsuccessful applications will not be automatically considered for the following year. A new application will have to be submitted.
