Islamic philosophy emphasises that education must be for the holistic development of the individual and of society. At Hujjat Primary school, we also recognise the National Curriculum as the national benchmark for excellence in all schools.
Our commitment to outstanding academic achievement therefore goes hand-in-hand with the nurture of values, which underpin the development of good character ("akhlaq").

To develop a curriculum which:
· Creates an aspirational high achievement culture;
The Board of Trustees recognises the National Curriculum (NC) as a national benchmark of excellence for all schools and a reference point for teachers and parents about what children are expected to learn. Hujjat Primary School therefore offers an ambitious, broad, balanced and vibrant curriculum with reference to the NC, whilst also giving time for children to extend their learning, building on their proficiency in their home languages and engage with local, national and international activities which reflect the diversity of our community both within and outside the school.
Our curriculum encourages high standards and ensures that pupils have the opportunity to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding in key subject areas and enable them to progress confidently and successfully through to the next stage of their education. We provide extension programmes for the more able/gifted and talented children, additional support for children with EAL and specialised support for children with special educational needs and disabilities. We also pay attention to the needs of all children who may be underachieving but additionally focusing on pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding ensuring that any barriers to learning are addressed and that they are given the best possible chance to succeed.
Together with the core curriculum, we implement a Values Based Curriculum through which a different value including tolerance, kindness, respect, integrity and resilience. This is introduced each month in assembly and discussed further in circle/carpet time and dedicated PSHCE curriculum time when the children have the opportunity to put their knowledge and values into action through pupil-led community service project work.
Each value is supported by a resource pack for all adults at the school and includes example activities and cross-curricular links, discussion topics, literary resources, relevant web sites, behaviour expectations and Islamic teachings to support the planning process and also to ensure that all children and adults at the school are aware that these core human values are also central to the Islamic faith.
We are committed to ensuring the highest quality of teaching and learning by recruiting qualified teachers with a passion for and commitment to developing children’s learning thus ensuring the best possible outcomes for their pupils. Partnership with Parents is a key feature of the school and we will work closely with parents to support their children’s learning and values at home. The school is committed to work alongside our partner schools (Harrow Cluster and The Elliot Foundation) to support and challenge the quality of curriculum provided by Hujjat Primary School.
