At DUSS homework is integral to the syllabus. All parents are expected to spend at least 30 minutes every week talking to their children about the school, and the work which they are doing. Children have a diary so that parents know what homework has been set and are expected to give additional time with their children. Parents are requested to communicate with the teachers using the homework diary and sign the diary on a weekly basis.
We create a stimulating and effective learning environment, using modern teaching methods and technology. Pupils leaving Jamiatul Ummah are securing places at prestigious universities. Our Ex-Pupil Moudud Hussain has recently completed a Masters Degree in Integrated Bio Science at Oxford University and another current pupil Jayed Alam Sarkar from our Sixth Form has been offered a place a Oxford University to study Law.
Teachers assess children through observation as well as setting structured tasks as and when appropriate. At the end of the year children have the final assessment which is used to decide whether individuals are ready to move to the next level or need to remain in the same class. A re-sit can be organised should there be a need.
Parents are responsible for providing packed lunch/snack for their child[ren]. Parents are responsible for dropping and collecting their child[ren] from school. The school does not have a strict uniform policy; however, pupils are expected to dress modestly. Students must respect their teachers, staff and other pupils at all times.
