Student Welfare

Al Rabeeh Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the care and welfare of children. Strong pastoral care is central to the ethos and aims of the Academy. 

The personal and social development of students is a central aim of our curriculum. We want our students to be able to:

  • Make and sustain good relationships
  • Have a healthy lifestyle
  • Be safe
  • Be able to co-operate with others
  • Have clear values and attitudes
  • Make choices with a moral context
  • Take responsibility
  • To be self-disciplined
  • To be self-motivated
  • Express opinions sensitively and confidentially
  • Think critically
  • Be self-reliant

We provide learning support for identified pupils, however specialist resources, classroom environments and staffing are limited. Parents of students requiring special educational needs are advised to discuss the needs of their child with administration before registration to ensure Al Rabeeh Academy can meet the needs of their child.
Children who are placed on the "Special Educational Needs" register at Al Rabeeh Academy will be provided with termly Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The SEN Teacher, Class Teacher and parents will work together to set the targets in the IEP.

All forms of bullying and harassment are considered to be unacceptable and are not tolerated within the school environment. All incidents are taken very seriously, recorded and monitored. Challenging bullying effectively will improve the safety and happiness of pupil"s and show that the school cares and makes clear to bullies that such behaviour is unacceptable.
We believe bullying is best prevented through the ethos based on mutual respect and equality. The raising of children"s self-esteem and self-confidence is central to the work and life of the school.
