OUR COMMITMENT TO SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
At school, we are consistently developing each child’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning. This is evident throughout the day and can be seen through our topics, visits and other activities; we encourage our parents to get involved at home with these areas by promoting tolerance, independence and extra-curricular interests, as well as developing them as an active British citizen and a positive Islamic role model for the community. In this section you can view how we enjoy doing this at school.

SOME EVENTS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
The week of 16th - 20th November is Anti-Bullying Week which is marked with special activities and events throughout the school. This puts an extra emphasis on our "zero tolerance for bullying" policy.
One of the activities this week was for each child to design an anti-bullying poster. A winner would be be selected from each year group and their poster would then be displayed on our Anti-Bullying Board. Well done to all children for taking part and we will look forward to hearing about the winners!
ROAD SAFETY WEEK

These included both theory and practical activities inside and outside the classroom. We welcomed visitors to remind us how to cross safely and we enjoyed learning off each other while working in our mentor groups.
School Partnership to Clean up the community
The children in Year 3 joined forces with the Year 3 children from Madni and went out on a mission to clean up the community.
They worked very hard clearing up rubbish and gathering leaves from a local area in Savile Town. It was a great and very rewarding experience by the children and a wonderful opportunity to link with another local school. We will look forward to more projects together in the future.

She expressed her enjoyment at visiting our school and hopes to return again very soon.

On May 7th, National Election Day, the children of Paradise all took part in the experience just like all the politians throughout the country!
Each class were allocated one of the main political party's, learnt all about them and developed their own manifesto, elected their own leaders and made election speeches for the whole school. The whole week the school building was transformed with bill boards and posters advertising the various parties.
Teachers and children both enjoyed this whole experience and Year 4 reigned victorious!
Visit to Barnfield Residential Home
The children from Year 5 paid a visit to the residents in Barnfield one morning in March. They brought buns and snacks are prepared some musical performances for the the ladies and gentlemen there. Then they stayed and chatted a while about each others lives and different things they had in common. The children and staff loved the visit and made some friends there. After the visit one resident contacted the school to say how much they had enjoyed meeting the children and came and took an assembly for the whole school. We hope to visit again soon.
