“Very good school, good rules and manners. Teachers are fair and equal, and teach lots” [Mohamed Daahir]      “A huge Jazakallahu khair to all of Date Palm Primary Staff, Masha’Allah the work and effort you all put into teaching was phenomenal.

Welcome to Date Palm Primary School

Date Palm Primary school is an independent Islamic primary school established in 2012. We are privileged to provide a primary education to a community with a high demographic of muslims in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets amidst a very few Islamic schools in the borough. Our school has over 200 children with a wide range of educational needs.


The School applies the regulations on admissions as fairly and equally as possible to all those who wish to attend this school. If the number of children applying for entry exceeds the places available, we enforce the procedure set in our admission policy in order to determine whether a child is accepted or not. It is our wish to allow parents the right to have a place at the school of their choice. However, this is not always possible, due to the excess demand on the school places available.


Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them
to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s
experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life
chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. 


The curriculum includes planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. 


Code of conduct

With Qur'an and Sunnah
The function of education is to teach one to think independently and to think critically. Children are also taught to love Allah and His prophets (peace be upon them all).

Good conduct benefits us both in this world and the next. It has a positive effect on people around us and the wider society. At Date Palm Primary School, we place great emphasis on building Islamic manners, morals and good character (Akhlaaq) development. Some of the key aspects we expect from our children are to:

The moral and Islamic personality of a child can only be effective with the co-operation and support of their parents. The school has set rules which must be adhered to by all pupils and supported by parents. (see school behaviour policy)

About us
The Muslim was likened to the Date Palm due to the abundance of it’s goodness, the continuity of it’s shade, the goodness of it’s fruit and it’s presence throughout the year. Just like the Date Palm Tree we want to cultivate children who can be fruitful wherever they are.
