Our aim is to create an outstanding learning community that promotes a culture of educational excellence

We are proud of our faith, its values and its emphasis on a shared view of humanity as our Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us saying, “The whole creation is (like) the household of Allah and the most beloved person in the sight of Allah is the one who is the kindest to his creation”. Hence, we all share responsibilities.

We take a progressive and globally-orientated interpretation of the Islamic faith. Everything we do is designed to enable all our students to live their lives according to the values of self-discipline, compassion, mutual respect for all people regardless of difference and respect for the earth itself. These fundamental values underpin our Islamic faith and our Islamic and British way of life.

Our school aims to celebrate all that faith has to give and instil a sense of joy at being part of the local and wider community. We place great emphasis on character development, promoting values such as respect, care, tolerance, self-discipline and love for each other. We promote an ethical lifestyle, enabling our learners to feel empowered to fulfil their responsibilities to themselves, their families, wider humanity and the environment around them. Regardless of their backgrounds, we want to prepare all our students to become high achieving, fully engaged citizens in multi-cultural 21st century Britain. For our students, we want to help them to explore how they can apply faith values in their everyday lives as committed and tolerant members of British society. We want them to become model British citizens, inspired by faith to uphold fundamental British values, reject extremism in any form and to prosper as part of British society. We want them to make a genuine and determined contribution and, by their actions, to demonstrate the best of what the Muslim faith can contribute to British life and culture.

Bahr Academy British Values statement:

To promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and none. Our values are based upon the teachings of the Qur’an and our Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Allah the Almighty says in the Holy Quran:

1. ‘O Mankind! We have created you from a single male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable amongst you in the sight of Allah is the one who is most god-fearing (god conscious) of you.’
(Surah Hujuraat, verse 13).
(Mutual respect and Tolerance)

2. ‘O Muslims! Stand firm for Allah, witnesses in justice and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Practice justice; that is closest to Taqwa (God consciousness) and fear Allah (be conscious of Allah); indeed, Allah is fully aware of what you do.’
(Surah Maaidah verse 8).
(Rule of Law, Justice)

3. ‘Whosoever wishes, he/she may believe (i.e. embrace Islam) and whosoever wishes, he/she may not believe.’
(Surah Kahf, verse 29).
(Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect & Tolerance)

4. ‘Allah does not forbid you from behaving cordially and justly with those who do not fight you on account of faith, nor expel you from your homes. Verily Allah loves those who maintain justice.’
(Surah Mumtahina, verse 8).
(Justice, Mutual Respect and Tolerance)

5. ‘(These people who shall have Allah’s eternal rewards are) those who respond (to the commands) of their Lord, establish prayers, who’s affairs are (decided) by mutual consultation (council) between themselves and who spend (in charity) of (the wealth) that we have provided for them.’
(Surah Shura, vesre 38).
(Democracy, Rule of Law)

The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ says:

1. ‘O people! Your Lord is one and your father is one. Listen carefully! There is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab, a non-Arab over an Arab, a Black over a red (white) or a white over a black except through piety.’
(Musnad Ahmad)
(Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect & Tolerance)

2. ‘The whole creation is (like) the household of Allah and the most beloved person in the sight of Allah is the one who is the kindest to his creation.’
(Baihaqi in shu’abul imaan)
(Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect & Tolerance)

3. ‘The (true) believer (is someone who) loves and is loved (by others). There is no goodness in the one who does not love nor is loved, and the best of people is the one who is the most beneficial to people.’
(Tabrani in mu’jamul awsat)
(Mutual respect, individual liberty)

The above are some of the many Islamic basic values and characteristics which we passionately teach in our school which also happen to be British Values. Within Bahr Academy, not only do we focus on academic education but we include within our focal point, ‘adhering to the Qur’anic injunctions, the Prophetic traditions and British values.' We teach our future generation of leaders and scholars respect and tolerance, alongside the behaviour that they must have amongst different faiths. We employ those of different religious and cultural backgrounds and accept students of different ethnicity. Students are strictly prohibited against racial abuse and against the neglect of respect with all. In addition, we make emphasis on applying the Qur’anic, the Prophetic and British values within the SMSC (Spiritual, moral, social and cultural) points of our lessons and other lessons across the whole board.

Relationships & Sex Education

What is RSE?

RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. RSE involves a combination of sharing information, and exploring issues and values. RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity. 

Our curriculum is set out in the RSE policy but we may need to adapt it as and when necessary. We have developed the curriculum in consultation with parents, pupils and staff, taking into account the age, needs and feelings of pupils. If pupils ask questions outside the scope of this policy, teachers will respond in an appropriate manner so they are fully informed and do not seek answers online. 

Delivery of RSE 
RSE is taught within the personal, social, health (PSHE) and Citizenship education curriculum. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum, and other aspects are included in religious studies (RS).  RSE focuses on giving young people the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds including:

Parents’ right to withdraw
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from the non-statutory components of sex education within RSE up to and until 3 terms before the child turns 16. After this point, if the child wishes to receive sex education rather than being withdrawn, the school will arrange this. Requests for withdrawal can be made by contacting the school. The headteacher will discuss the request with parents and take appropriate action. Alternative work will be given to pupils who are withdrawn from sex education.
