Update on the Potential Re-opening of School

Dear Parents / Carers,

I hope you all had a wonderful Eid and are all keeping well, staying safe and making the best of the current situation. Following on from the Government announcement and further guidance from the Department of Education, The Governors, SLT and I have been working on a risk assessment / action plan for the possibility of reopening.

Given the level of planning and changes to the school environment that need to be put in place in order to reduce the risk of infection to staff, children and you at home, we will Not be opening on the 1st June 2020. We are working very hard to prepare the school so that we can open as soon as it is safe for us to do so.

In the meantime the school will continue to be open only for the vulnerable children and the children of critical workers.

Parent Surveys

Thank you for responding to our survey for Early years, year 1 and year 6 pupils. If you have not done so yet, please do so as soon as possible. This is detail which we will need to input in our action plan.

Home school learning

For children who are staying at home, home-school learning will continue in the same way through the online learning platform – Class Dojo and Google Classroom.

We will keep you updated as to when we will be able to reopen the school. We know this is a difficult time and there is a lot of concern about the impact this is having on children’s learning and on our community. It is important that we work together to keep each other safe.

Yours sincerely
Mrs. Jakhura
Head Teacher

Assalaam Alaikum,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.  Leicester Islamic Academy was founded in 1982, and has a rich history of success for all. Many of our alumni have gone on to be successful in the fields of Medicine, Accountancy, Pharmacy, Teaching, Dentistry and many other professional careers. We offer a friendly, happy Islamic educational setting for your child to thrive in.

We are blessed with well-equipped classrooms that are resourced to provide an ideal environment in which young minds can achieve to the best of their potential. We are situated on a large site, in the leafy area of Stoneygate, Leicester.  We are ideally located near to the main transport routes into Leicester and are in walking distance of the City centre and the Universities. We are fortunate to have a Pre-school Unit, LIA Gems, that provides a caring and nurturing environment from the age of three months to three years.

For Primary school age children from age three in Nursery to age eleven in Year 6, Leicester Islamic Academy provides a stimulating education that allows children to thrive spiritually and reach their full academic potential.  Children end their LIA school journey in Year 6 with excellent academic skills and an Islamic education based on the Quran and the Sunnah.

Our motto is ‘Excellence Everyday’, this is lived out by our wonderful pupils and our dedicated staff team. Our Mission statement is a clear reflection of our values and ethos.  We have an LIA school vision that is based on every child developing a strong deen and growing up to be a responsible British citizen who gives back to society through hard work and service.
