In order for The Iqra Islamia School to succeed in helping our children become successful Muslims that make us all proud, the school and parents must work together towards the betterment of our children’s attitudes and behaviour, for their child.
The Discipline Policy is based on the principles of Islam derived from the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. As Muslims we are expected to behave with self-discipline and noble conduct in every situation. It is related that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “I was only sent to perfect noble character” (Ahmed).
Therefore, at The Iqra Islamia School, one of our main goals is to nurture self-discipline and noble conduct amongst our students. We are also committed to the development and maintenance of a learning environment that is safe, secure and conducive to effective learning.
Discipline at our school is an educational process in which a sense of responsibility, self-awareness and making good choices is fostered. We believe that the most effective discipline is using preventive measures. We continually work towards improving the school environment by establishing policies that promote morality and good conduct while minimizing or eliminating the causes of poor behavior.
We trust that the application of these rules will enhance our efforts in developing a strong moral system, help our students to take responsibility of their own actions and make positive choices throughout their lives. The parents must work with the school, as a team, to help promote self-discipline and excellence in the student’s lives.
Students must remember that they are expected to behave responsibly in and out of the school and to consider themselves as representatives of Islam and The Iqra Islamia School at all times.

- Students are expected to be on time for class. Unexcused tardiness is not permitted. Students are considered tardy when they are not in their seats, prepared for class.

- Whenever there is a guest in the room, he/she must be treated with respect.
- Students must have the correct books and equipment for the lesson.

- Food, drinks, snack, gum, etc. are not allowed in any classroom except in appropriate times, as allowed by the teachers.
- To keep the classroom neat and tidy.
- A basic right of each student at The Iqra Islamic School is the right to learn, without interference by the behavior of another student. This right must be protected. Students who continuously disrupt the learning of other students by unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Thus at The Iar Islamia School, giving priority to the teaching staff’s time to teach, as opposed to dealing with disciplinary and attendance problems is important.
- The bell does not dismiss the class – the teacher does. Before leaving class each student is responsible for cleaning the area around his/ her desk or work area.
