Character Building Management (CBM)


SANABIL is bound to set up high aspiration for each and every child. Our children are given wings to hatch high aspirations for life in this 'Dhuniya and Aakhira'. We want to create not the followers but the Leaders for the society. We lead the child through a step by step process in which he realize his potential, set up his life ambition and direct him how to achieve those ambitions and trains him to excel in which he wants to be. For example not a doctor but a great sincere and kind doctor whom a patient really wants to, An honest politician whom people admires. So the main objective of the school is to induce these values to achieve the Will of ALLAH by excelling their chosen profession. . Salah Diary We strongly believe that the early years is the best time to lay down the stone of faith and religious routines and the love for Masjid in a child's mind. Prophet (SAW) said if you knew the reward for Fajr salat and Isha salat in the Masjid, they would come crawling. We can only find a few people during the Isha and Fajr in the masjid. So Insha Allah we need to change the statuesque. The salat times falls within the school timing we pray them inside the masjid. Boys will pray the Salah at the Masjid while girls in the school. School monitors the children whether they pray their salat at five times a day. During the school hours class teachers mark in their salah Diary and while they are at home parents has to mark it. Those who score more will be rewarded every week at their golden time and there will be monthly rewards as well. We could encourage the quest for prayer through salah diary. Islamic behavior chart Instead of forcing the children to practice good values and behaviors we are giving them small rewards and generate the love for Islam by the means of Islamic Behaviors chart, stickers etc. It is been psychologically proven that positive reinforcements will be more effective to form and reform the character formation. Environment Sanabil provides an ideal environment which is based on strengthening one's bond with Allah resulting in stimulating positivity and the desire to learn, grow and succeed. Practice Days; Although every day is a practical day for a Muslim yet some days are mentioned here to make Islamic environment in our society..Quran Day,Dawa Day,Parents Day,Hurmat Day,Event Day,Salam Day,Help Day,Kalima Day,Salat Day,Zakat Day,Teachers Day. All these days are a practice for making practical Muslims.

Parents We love to work with and involve the parents of our students. Beneficial parent support programs are offered in the form of workshops and Tarbiyyah sessions which provide valuable knowledge on child psychology and Islamic parenting in addition to supporting parents to reinforce their child's learning at school. Mothers are offered Fahm al-Qur'an certificate course through which they get an understanding of the Qur'an and learn important aspects of Islamic upbringing of children.

Students must enter the prayer area quietly and prepare to line up for prayer properly. Unnecessary conversation is discouraged.

Behaviour Policy RISE reshapes its Behaviour code on the basis of Islamic values. We expect children to be polite, cooperative and considerate of others. Members of staff are committed to creating a school environment where these qualities are seen to be important and are positively encouraged. We expect all our students to; Maintain good behaviour; Have a positive attitude towards learning; Respect school premises, property and staff Listen to and respect teachers and other students. Our behaviour policy provides a framework for the creation of a happy, secure and orderly environment in which children can learn and develop as caring and responsible people. It is written for all members of the school community to allow each one to understand the policy of the school and to apply it consistently and fairly. It meant to to promote self-

discipline and consideration of others. It should reflect in their behavior and language and to release their maximum potential in all activities. Behavior policy is designed in such a way that, it is used and approved by all the teaching and non-teaching staff and school ensures that parents are well aware of these disciplinary measures. It also provide a system of rewards to encourage good behavior. This policy is used to try and reverse continuous and habitual offenders by using assertive discipline techniques and ensure a safe, caring and happy school. Therefore school promotes good citizenship and prevent all kinds of bullying. The establishment of a sound, positive and caring ethos is an essential prerequisite for learning. It depends upon trusting relationships and a process of cooperative team work and the school welcomes and encourages the involvement of the RISE, governors, parents and carers and others in the community.

We aim to make all those connected with the school aware of our opposition to bullying, and we make clear each persons responsibilities with regard to preventing bullying in our School. If bullying does occur, all children should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING School. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff. All adult members of our school community should be vigilant to recognize where bullying is taking place, and deal with it thoroughly and with sensitivity. School Visits SANABIL has a detailed policy to safeguard and promote the health and safety of the pupil on activities outside the school. This covers the full risk assessment and the associated information. Educational visits are arranged on average once a term, to various places of interest to support Childrens learning. Parents/guardians may be asked to contribute towards the cost of the trip and occasionally to assist with the trip. For the most part, the school provides materials and equipment that the children need. Sometimes certain educational activities involving sports, food, game and art may require small contributions from parents for the visits to take place. SANABIL is pledged to meet all the health and safety measures in prior to all the educational visits. Pupils as well as parents are given with sufficient awareness classes about the particulars of the visit. Academic Performances SANABIL will assess each student thoroughly at the time of admission. There will be continuous and comprehensive evaluation criteria to assess the performance of the students throughout the academic year. At the end of the academic year the school will send reports to all the parents. Homework SANABIL believes that children learn the best when parents and teachers work together. Parents can help in the classroom by hearing children read, sharing their skills and also participating on outings. At home, we hope parents are able to share the enjoyment of books, puzzles and Maths games which children take home on a regular basis every week, and to hear them read regularly. Parents can also help support class work when teachers ask

children to do some research or to try to collect objects to enrich school projects. Details of such and other homework are provided to all parents by the class teachers at a team meeting at the beginning of each term. Homework is a collective responsibility of the class teacher, pupil and the parent. Teachers should inspect that the homework demands should not infringe on childrens rights to play, physical activities and rest. The school views home work as an extension of the learning process and not as a test or competition. Attendance, leave and illness School has a strict policy on attendance and punctuality as it has great influence on the discipline. Parents are required to inform the school on the first day their child is absent from school. The school requires an explanation in writing for all absences on the childs return. The school discourages holidays during term time. Permission for holiday leave must be requested in advance from the Principal. Should your child suffer from a medical condition, it is imperative that the school is notified immediately. .
