At Al-Furqan we believe in supporting our families. By supporting families in make the right choices, accessing early help as needed, and looking after themselves, we are investing in our future generations.
Our children are our future and we need to ensure we do everything we can to help them grow into strong, capable and confident young people and adults.
We have a family support worker who is available every Tuesday afternoon for support surgeries. Please ring the school office to book an appointment if you need support.
Messages will be sent out via Expressions updating parents on the latest topic and booking info.
Since October half term, Muslim Sports Foundation have been delivering ladies fitness sessions at Al-Furqan. These are ongoing until the start of Ramadan 2023. They take place every Wednesday at 1.40pm, in the parent’s room. These sessions are delivered by a qualified, professional female coach. Please come along, dressed in loose clothing, or speak to Ustadha Saima for more information. These sessions are great as they help to work-out whilst having fun. They are targeted at all ability levels. The sessions end at 2.45pm, and the ladies enjoy a relaxing tea coffee and a chat until home time for the children.
Coffee mornings are held every last Wednesday of the month in the morning, in the parent’s room. These are informal sessions, refreshments are provided.
Coffee afternoons are held every last Thursday of the month, in the afternoon at 2pm. These are held in the parent’s room, and usually will have external guests coming in to deliver a session, or to inform of community services that are beneficial to parents. They start at 2pm and finish at 3.15pm. Our last session, in January, was based around looking ways to improve mental health and anxiety in our children.

We have had some really positive feedback for our parent’s wellbeing sessions. Delivered by Ashiana Community Project, these sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons from 1.30pm in the parent’s room. They have focused on looking at parenting styles, parents own wellbeing and the impact childhood can have on how young people grow into adults.
