Welcome to Al Mizan School
Al Mizan has benefited greatly from being housed in one of the largest and most prestigious Islamic centres in Europe: The London Muslim Centre. The centre provides the students with a much valued identity and they have come to appreciate the great part it plays in their lives.
Our aims, vision and ethos are all centred around instilling strong Islamic values and raising the educational standards of children in Britain particularly in the fields of Science, languages and Islamic Studies. We welcome the challenge and aim to deliver an education that will provide every student with the qualification and skills necessary to become successful during their time at universities and in their professional careers. We want our students to become good citizens of Britain by caring for the wider community through charity and social justice.Visit Us

At South Malling, we aim for all children to have a confident, positive attitude towards mathematics and an enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion. Children learn to become number fluent and seek patterns and relationships. They develop a wide range of problem-solving techniques and use the language of mathematics to reason and explain how they solved problems, applying their learning to practical situations so that they understand the importance of mathematical skills in everyday life.
A child who learns to write at South Malling will develop a passion and curiosity for the craft of writing. Through studying inspirational writers, they will learn the impact and importance of the written word. Our writing curriculum enables pupils to express their own voice, writing for authentic purposes – to entertain, to inform and to persuade – and is underpinned by rigorous teaching of spelling, grammar and punctuation that will equip them with the skills an expert writer needs in life.
At South Malling we aim for every child to develop a love of reading. This begins with the teaching of phonics in our reception class where we use the Letters and Sounds scheme as well as Jolly Phonics to engage the children in a rich variety of kinaesthetic and musical activities. The school uses a wide range of books in the teaching of reading that are banded to support growing reading ability; daily guided reading sessions in each year allow us to support each child’s progress.
PE & Sport
At South Malling we believe that the physical curriculum should lead to a sense of well-being, a greater understanding of health and fitness, a healthy lifestyle and a feeling of self-confidence. Our RealPE curriculum is a child-centred approach that transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge every child; supporting each child in our care to develop the physical literacy, emotional intelligence and thinking skills to achieve in PE, sport and life.
At South Malling we recognise that individuals are unique and we have a mission to help each pupil fulfil their potential physically, academically, socially, morally and spiritually. Although we are a Church school, we are inclusive to all members of the community we serve. Our aim is that pupils from all faiths and those without a faith feel safe and happy, secure in the knowledge that their beliefs are respected and valued.
Our computing curriculum equips our pupils with the knowledge and skills to use technology safely to find things out and explore ideas at both local and global levels. Authentic experiences link with other areas of their learning inspiring children to work at their challenges with all their heart. We aim to give children the skills and knowledge to communicate their thoughts and findings considerately, to recognize when something is unsafe or unkind and to know what to do next.
Art and DT are practical, curious, creative subjects, which we value at South Malling as lifelong skills. Pupils at South Malling have the opportunity to express their ideas, attitudes and values and to reflect on those of others, as they recognise the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from many different times and cultures. Our DT curriculum ensures children design, make and evaluate products using a broad range of materials and components within a range of authentic contexts.
We teach PSHE (personal, social and health education) and RSHE (relationships, sex and health education) under the child-friendly term of ‘Life Skills’. The whole school shares the same ethos, with the children’s development at its core. We have a rigorous approach, starting from what the children know and building on this so that they can assess their own learning and know their next steps. Our aim is for each child to be self-aware, confident and equipped to deal with life safely.
Our science teaching at South Malling fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our world both in the classroom and our wider grounds. Throughout our practical programmes of study, the children acquire and develop a wide range of scientific skills and learn how real scientists behave. Our use of oracy-focused teaching also equips children with the key vocabulary and allows them to develop their knowledge and become eloquent scientific communicators.
