- Mission Statement
Our objective at Madrasah Taleemud Deen is to develop the personalities of our children so that they are conscious of their responsibility to Allah (God the Creator) and to fellow humans. We want to see our children grow and develop an Islamic personality and an emotional attachment to Islam. We aim to achieve this by helping them develop their intellectual and spiritual potential and we believe parents must play a vital role in this process.
Currently all our classes are held within the Mosque. Our approach to Islamic Studies is comprehensive and covers all relevant topics such as the Qur’an, Sirah (Prophetic biography), Hadith (Collection of traditions containing sayings of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon Him), Aqidah (Beliefs), Fiqh (Theory of Islamic law), Akhlaq (Morals or manners of a person) and Arabic Language* for the purpose of Islamic studies.
The textbooks we use offer a balanced Islamic syllabus written and developed by the education board of Jamiatul Ulama Taalimi Board, South Africa and Based on the Hanafi Mazhab (Islamic school of thought within fiqh – Islamic jurisprudence).

- Key stages
We know that children are all different and at Madrasah Taleemud Deen we assess the level of your child individually in each subject on a regular basis and tailor our program to meet their needs.
An annual examination is held once a year before the month of Ramadhan. Exam preparations are organised by the madrasah a few weeks in advance to help prepare the children for the exam. Parents are encouraged to get involved in this regards. Madrasah rounds up each academic year with an award ceremony and performances produced by the teachers and presented by the pupils. Gifts are also awarded to the children.
- Term times
The Madrasah Taleemud Deen term time follows the standard Lincolnshire school terms and holidays with a slight variation. Exact dates are communicated every year.
The Madrasah opening times are from Monday to Friday from 06-07.30pm.
Please note that these times are subject to change according to the season of the year.
Any change will be communicated duly and can also be viewed on the website. Parents’ views may be sought to help us find the most convenient time.
The tuition Fee for the Madrasah is £120/year for every child. The fee can be paid in full or in 12 monthly installments (£10/month). Please note that parents must also cover the cost of each book provided to the child by the Madrasah or alternatively they can procure the books themselves.
We encourage all parents to send their children to Madrasah. We welcome your contribution and would greatly appreciate any donation to help us continue and improve this service. Donations are essential to help cover the cost of teachers’ wages, teaching material and stationery. Please check our donation page.
- Madrasah Rules and Policies
- The Madrasah is open to all children, boys and girls.
- The minimum admission age is 5
- Dress Code
We recommend all children wear the following when attending Madrasah:
– Boys: A jubbah or Thawb (a long outer garment with long sleeves), preferably white and a hat.
– For girls: An Abaya (is a loose over-garment, essentially a robe-like dress) along with a headscarf.
- Drop off and Pick up
The Madrasah is not liable for children outside of lesson times. Please ensure that your child is supervised before the class starts and promptly collected.
If you are running late, please notify the Madrasah as soon as possible, preferably 15 minutes in advance.
We will only admit children in the class up to 10min after the starting time. Late pickups create a serious problem for our teachers due to their professional and family commitments. A pattern of late pickups may result in a formal warning letter sent to the parent. We strongly advise you (parents) NOT to “honk” your horn or obstruct the pavement with your vehicle as this could endanger someone or cause unnecessary inconvenience when picking/dropping off your child.
A parent must notify the Madrasah if a child is unable to attend. Occasionally, the class is cancelled due to adverse weather or teacher’s absence; in these circumstances we will do our best to give you as much notice as possible (via text or email).
- Safeguarding Children
The Madrasah fully recognises its responsibilities for safeguarding children. The Madrasah liaison officer acts as the first point of contact for parents, pupils and the teacher. The officer liaises with the mosque committee in all matters of child protection.
All Madrasah employed teachers are required to have a DBS check, to have attended a safeguarding children training course and an approved basic first aid course.
During Madrasah performances, photographs or videos may be taken of your child and may be used on the Madrasah website. If you wish to opt out of this please contact using the online contact form.
- How and when to apply
The application closing date for each academic year will be communicated appropriately and displayed on the website.
Prospective students and their parents are welcome to book a visit to the Madrasah beforehand where they can meet the Teacher/ Madrasah Liaison officer and see the class in action.
