Darul Hadis Latifiah Northwest is a secondary school for boys and began to operate as a school from September 2011, Alhamdulillah.
It's important to note that the resources we provide are not an exhaustive list; rather, they supplement our curriculum. One of the key ways we enhance the learning journey for our students is by utilising a diverse range of modern learning platforms. These platforms, such as MathsWatch, Seneca, KayScience, and ReadTheory, play a pivotal role in expanding and reinforcing their knowledge base.
MathsWatch empowers our students with interactive maths lessons and tutorials, even outside of the class, ensuring they grasp mathematical concepts effectively. Seneca provides an engaging platform for a wide range of subjects, helping students excel not only in core academic disciplines but also in others. KayScience offers valuable resources for students exploring the world of science, fostering a deep understanding of this essential subject. Meanwhile, ReadTheory helps students develop strong reading and comprehension skills, which are vital for success in all academic areas.
By incorporating these cutting-edge learning tools into our teaching methods, we supplement our commitment to providing a well-rounded education that prepares our students for future endeavours, whether it's entering the workforce, pursuing higher education at college or university, or embarking on a path of lifelong learning.
At our school, we believe in harnessing the power of technology and innovation to empower our students to reach their full potential academically and spiritually. We are proud to offer a dynamic learning environment that combines traditional values with modern educational resources, ensuring that our students receive the best of both worlds as they embark on their educational journey with us.
At this school, we strongly believe that homework is an essential part of learning. Homework also strengthens the relationship between learners, parents and the school.
The aims of homework are to help the learners develop independent learning skills and researching skills. It helps to build upon concepts and skills taught in class. Homework helps a teacher to assess a student’s understanding and it builds a habit of working regularly. Homework also involves parents in their child’s learning.
Homework will be clearly identified in all schemes of work. It should involve a variety of learning styles including writing, reading and research. It will also be achievable, i.e. it should not require material which the learners are unlikely to have.
Clear deadlines will be given to the learners when to hand in work. Not all homework needs to be marked. All homework should be checked according to the homework diary. Every learners should have a planner/-diary where he will write a description of the work and the deadline. The homework diary should be signed weekly by the parents and the form tutor and the diary should be with the pupil every day.
At Darul Hadis Latifiah Northwest, we hold the well-being of our students in the highest regard, both in terms of their mental and physical health. We understand that nurturing a strong mind and body is essential for personal growth and spiritual development, in line with Islamic teachings that emphasise holistic well-being.
We acknowledge that mental health is a serious matter that affects individuals of all genders, including males, and we firmly stand against the stigma that sometimes surrounds it within the local community. We believe that addressing mental health is not only compatible with our faith, a religious duty to care for one another, and in line with the British Values.
Through various support mechanisms, we strive to create an environment where students can openly discuss their mental health concerns, seek guidance, and receive the support they need to flourish academically, spiritually, and emotionally. We encourage students to turn to both their faith and the resources we provide to navigate life’s challenges with resilience and strength.
In addition to mental well-being, we are equally committed to promoting physical health. We emphasise the importance of maintaining a healthy body as a trust from Allah, encouraging regular exercise and good nutrition habits. Our Islamic values guide us in caring for our bodies and ensuring their well-being.
Overall, at our school, we aim to nurture well-rounded individuals who not only excel academically but also possess strong mental and physical health. We believe that by addressing both aspects of well-being and countering the stigma surrounding mental health in the Islamic community, we are following the teachings of our faith and providing our students with the tools they need to lead fulfilling lives.
