Pastoral Care

Basic Principles

The Pastoral Care system at any school is based on a fundamental principal of Islamic education – the care of the whole person. The Holistic person!

Purposes

  • To create a caring happy atmosphere in which the highest moral standards have priority.
  • To help pupils to recognise the equal value of all persons.
  • To foster in pupils feelings of self worth and a sense of their own dignity as Muslims.
  • To facilitate learning.
  • To promote understanding.
