Admission Procedures and Policy
- Everyone must submit the online admission application form.
- The office will send an acknowledgement email/message to the applicant with detailed instructions.
- TARBIYAH teachers and admission team will interview the applicant to decide whether a place can be offered to a particular child for a particular level or course.
- TARBIYAH teachers may ask versatile questions to understand the applicant’s learning attitudes, abilities and family backgrounds to determine the ways TARBIYAH may give utmost personal care to each student.
- Once a place is offered to an applicant, a deadline will be given to parents to confirm the acceptance of the offer by paying the advised fees and signing an acceptance contract.
- Applicants will be admitted to a class or course for at least one year or other full duration of the course.
- If for any reasons TARBIYAH needs to withdraw the course or class, refunds will be made for uncompleted duration, but an admissions fee may be applied.
- If an applicant needs to withdraw from a class or course, no refunds will be made unless there is a reasonable replacement for the vacant seat.
- Applicants must follow the deadlines for application, acceptance, and payments. Failure to do so may result in the offer being retracted.
- Each applicant will have to meet all academic and behavioral standards of TARBIYAH in order for them to transit to the successive year and parents have to confirm their continuation in writing, and by paying the required tuition and admission fees.
- Siblings will have a preference in admission consideration subject to the positive track records of the existing sibling/s at TARBIYAH. A sibling is defined as a brother or sister, half brother or sister, step-brother or sister or adopted brother or sister whose main residence is at the same address. This criterion will apply to applicants with a sibling living at the same address who is already on roll of the TARBIYAH.
Assignments and Homework Policy
It is a well-established fact that simply providing lessons for students is not enough. Students learn in a variety of ways and thus it is crucial that a range of other activities are offered to aid learning. With this in mind, students will have the opportunity to complete extra work in the form of assignments, group tasks, homework etc. All work will be marked, and students will receive feedback signposting them towards how to improve further.
The expectations at TARBIYAH are designed to focus on positive action rather than what a student should not do. The expectations are agreed actions so that there is consistency and fairness in all areas of school life. However, we recognize that all students may have specific needs. Therefore, within this consistent approach is an element of flexibility to address the needs of specific children. TARBIYAH promises to:
- Treat all students consistently and fairly.
- Support will be made available to aid students’ learning and behavioral needs.
- Students will be encouraged to make positive choices.
- All students will be given the chance of a new start throughout the classes.
- All successes will be appreciated.
- High expectations will consistently be maintained, supported, and promoted.
- Students will always be listened to.
