We want children at Al Huda Primary & Little Gems to learn, to lead and to make a difference

Child Protection & Safeguarding

At Al-Huda we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and young people.  Our school expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The outcomes of this are that children and young people at Al-Huda feel happy and safe.  We, therefore, aim to provide a caring, safe environment in this school alongside a curriculum in which children’s self-esteem and independence are nurtured, alongside an understanding of how to keep themselves safe.

Our school designated safeguarding lead is: Zeenat Patel (Assistant Headteacher)

  • The school will refer all allegations or concerns that a child has been or is likely to be abused or neglected to Social Care within the Pupil’s Services Department.
  • The school will consult with other agencies when it has concerns that a child may have been abused or neglected.
  • The school will discuss with parents any concerns they have about their pupil.


Information from parents about possible child abuse cannot be kept confidential as this is done for the welfare of the pupil.

Information and records about pupil on the Child Protection Register will be given only to those people who need it and will be kept strictly confidential by them. If parents have concerns about their child, they should contact the Head Teacher.


On 1 July 2015, The government published “advice on the Prevent duty”. This document explains what schools and childcare providers can do to protect children and young people from the risk of radicalisation.

At Al-Huda Primary school we ensure that all staff have an awareness of Prevent and the relevant procedures to follow if needed.

Children grow physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through activities relating to themselves and others. Within our school, we have a wealth of diversity of thought, experience and culture, which enhances each child’s development.

It is our intention to create a very happy ‘family school’ where there is a sense of purpose and well-being, a connection with our precious pupils and their families, a place where children and adults are glad to be. Good behaviour is looked for, acknowledged and always rewarded.

By consistently focusing on the child’s strengths and achievements. We aim not only for academic success but also to build a tradition of respect, good manners, and a sense of responsibility amongst our children. Your children will have the widest possible curriculum in a positive climate that enables everyone to succeed.

Al-Huda has many factors within the school to inspire all our children to become strong, enthusiastic and happy learners

At the same time, to also revive holistic Islamic Tarbiyah, and by using the Qur’an and Sunnah as guiding beacons we educate children on Islamic knowledge, creed and morals.

In regards to our Islamic faith throughout our daily life. We provide a religious syllabus which develops our children’s knowledge and understanding of our faith.

In a responsible manner, showing respect, courtesy and consideration at all times in accordance with the teachings of the Prophet (ﷺ). We have very high expectations of our pupils in this regard and all children are encouraged to act as Ambassadors for Islam, throughout primary school.
