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


Al-Huda Academy was established in 2005 to serve the needs of the Muslim youth and the wider community. The main work of the Academy focuses on developing the spiritual, moral and social well-being of the younger generation. We began with Little Gems Foundation Unit and now have developed further into Al-Huda Primary School.

Our mission is for every child to have developed the values, attitudes and skills which enables them to become compassionate learners and to understand the importance of a moral and spiritual life

For an Islamic community, this would evident itself in many ways such as tolerance, caring and a willingness to understand and learn and respect each other.

Within our school, the basis on which all relationships are built is this belief. Everyone in the school is a uniquely valuable human being whom the Almighty loves. They are all entitled to the love and respect which that fact demands.

In pursuance of this, the Chair of Trustees on behalf of Al-Huda Academy shall:

  • Serve as the key link between the school, parents/carers and the local community.
  • Champion the work of the school within the local community.
  • Advise the Principal and Senior Leadership Team as they plan the development of the school and represent the views of the school and local community within decision making.
  • Challenge extremism and promote fundamental British values.
  • Approve school-level policies.
  • Discharge duties with regard to Safeguarding in line with School policy.
  • Discharge duties with regard to SEN and inclusion in line with School policy.

The Academy is passionate about school and is here to make sure that every young person is given the best education, opportunities and experiences possible. Our Chair of trustees and Chair of proprietor body Alhuda Trust (Mr Shafwan Ahmed) plays and acts as a “critical friend” for the Senior Leadership Team and holds the school to account for performance and development.

  • Learning program with after-school
  • Positive learning environment
  • Learning through play



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.
