The Deputy Mayor, James Murray, has agreed to come to a London Citizens assembly on 15th November 2017 at Oasis in Westminster. This is our chance to demonstrate to those in power, and to our members, that the reason London Citizens can make significant change is because we are willing to put in the time and energy to hold politicians to account throughout their time in office. Without real progress at this meeting, which requires a strong turnout from our member organisations, we simply will not be able to make significant change at our local assembly on affordable housing in April next year. We have the opportunity to take the fight for CLTs on Olympic Park; Landlord Licensing and Rogue Landlords to the London Deputy for Housing, James Murray, on Wednesday 15th November from 6.30pm-8.30pm at Oasis, 75 Westminster Bridge Rd, London SE1 7HS.

November marks Islamophobia awareness month. In acknowledgement of this the school will be tactfully discussing the topic with the older children to evade any concerns. In tribute of Islamophobia awareness month, there will be exhibitions held throughout London and beyond. Please encourage your friends, families and neighbours to attend to help eradicate hate crimes.

Pupils were very busy this week with two themed weeks in one: Interfaith week and Anti-Bullying week. On Tuesday we had the pleasure of having teachers and pupils from IJPS (Ilford Jewish Primary School) to talk to the children about the Judaism. This was followed by a teacher from Avanti Court Primary on Hinduism. Children were asked to reflect on how learning about others and talking with them breeds understanding and respecting for one another.

 

 

Monday’s Anti-Bullying assembly also asked children to respect others, whatever the differences, including their peers in their classes. They considered a new definition of bullying:

Bullying is the use of face threat or coercion to abuse intimidate or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is rejected and habitual. One essential pre-requisite is the reception by the bully or others of an imbalance of social or physical, over which distinguishes bullying from conflict.

 

In addition they were asked to think about hidden bullying behaviours and whether they had even a small element of any of them. These are behaviours that are often very difficult to detect by adults but cause problems in interactions with their peers and can lead to behaviour that can be perceived as bullying, if not out-right bullying itself:

1) a need to control and dominate others, 2) being quick to anger, 3) having poor impulse control, 4) having a lack of empathy for others 5) being intolerant of differences, 6) not accepting responsibility for their actions, 7) having feelings of superiority, 8) blaming the victim.

 

Children have enjoyed learning about other faiths and reflecting on Anti-Bullying. They have been engaged in discussions and dialogue in school and we would strongly recommend parents to continue the discussions at home, jazakAllahu khair.

Last Tuesday the student council and a group of parents and staff attended the meeting to present the school’s top two local concerns and join the vote to select three that all eight member organisations will work together to tackle in the run up to local elections, bi-idhnIllah. The school had voted the following as its top concerns, at 19% and 16% respectively:

1) crime rates; 2) safety in local parks.

 

The Student Council did an excellent job presenting these creatively and succinctly masha’Allah and were warmly commended by many present. The school (and assembly) was also delighted by our turnout of 28 people – challenging the host organisation for the top spot (Trinity High School) who had 30 people present.

 

After voting the final top three local concerns adopted by the Alliance were:

1) Crime (including Islamophobia/Hate Crime and anti-social behaviour);

2) Affordable housing;

3) Facilities for young people.

 

Three teams were set up to begin work with a research phase to help us narrow down each category to concrete goals and actions. The next meeting is on 10th January insha’Allah and we urge you get involved and join us in working practically to serve and care for our neighbours, change munkar around us and improve local society for everyone. Please drop Umm Anisah an email on office@al-noorprimary.co.uk, citing ‘Citizens’ to be part of this work – that many parents present described as ‘inspiring’.
