Slough School Receives Ofsted Material Change Inspection

The Slough School was visited by an Ofsted inspector on Tuesday 22nd November, who carried out a Material Change inspection. Alhamdulillah, although we are awaiting the official report, we can comment that the inspection went very well and the inspector was happy with the suitability of the building for our school. Please note, that this type of Ofsted inspection does not give a school a grading, as it only checks and evaluates the suitability of the new premises and how it meets regulations.

Closure of Tifly, Slough branch on 30th September 2016

With a heavy heart, we have decided to close Tifly Day Care for the foreseeable future. Sadly, we were unable to relocate it to Dawson House, Ladbrooke Road, Slough, SL1 2SR.  We would like to send our duas and well wishes to all families that were a part of our Tifly community.

End of Lease at Lion House, Slough branch

This is the end of an era which saw our school expand from 50 children in 2005 to the current capacity for 120 children. Tifly Day Care was also established here in 2007. During the last 11 years, we have seen our children partake in many amazing feats and achievements, and I am sure that Lion House will be missed by the entire school community. Alhamdulillah, we are temporarily relocating to Dawson House for the next 2-3 years inshaAllah.

Enforcement of New Registration Policy

It has been noticed that on some occasions parents do not inform the school when their child is absent and as a result the teacher is not able to authorize the absence. School timings are 8.45am to 3pm. Morning registration occurs between 8.45am-9am, any child arriving to school after 9am is marked as late. In the event your child is absent please observe the following procedure:

-Email or call the school by 9.15am to inform us of the reason for your child's absence. Email is preferred as we can then save it for our records. If no one attends to the school phone please leave a message, which will be listened to by 9.15am.
-Send in a note explaining the reason for the absence with a sibling to give to myself at the door.

If we do not receive any notification as to why a child is absent, we will be contacting parents at 9.30am to find out the reason for the absence.

Please note unauhorised absences are an extremely serious matter and any absence not explained can become an issue of Safeguarding and Child Protection. Please note that reasons such as absence due to a previous late night or lack of transport do not constitute valid reasons for lateness or absence.

Enforcement of New Parking Policy

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents who have been mindful to adhering to the new parking policy. Although the fundamental problem is that essentially there are not enough parking spaces, we appreciate your patience in this matter as this is something we cannot do anything about. Since the policy has been put into place, there seems to be an improvement in the parking situation in the mornings. It is hoped this will help in easing the drop-off congestion and ensure that all children arrive to school/Tifly on time and safely insha Allah.

London and Slough:  Change in the Morning Routine

To implement new teaching and learning strategies across the school, children now began their learning ten minutes before assembly starts, at 8.50am promptly every day. During these ten minutes, the children go through mental maths, CLIC and VCOP games and activities. These additional learning slots will enhance the children’s learning at the start of the day, and will aid their concentration during assembly too.
