Iqra Slough Islamic Primary School has been judged South East Primary School of the Year in the 2014 Pupil Premium Awards;

The Pupil Premium Awards, which are run jointly by the Times Education Supplement and the Department for Education, aim to reward and celebrate schools that have done the most to raise the aspiration and achievement of disadvantaged pupils through sustainable and evidence-based school improvement. The awards underline the importance placed on breaking the link between poverty, success at school and future life-chances to ensure every pupil reaches their full potential.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg congratulated Iqra Sough Islamic School in his letter to Deputy Headteacher Noeman Anwar;

“This is a huge achievement and reflects the hard work of you, your team and your pupils. We received nearly 200 entries this year and the standard was very high. We expect this public recognition and demonstration of effective practice in your school will encourage other schools to think more ambitiously about their use of pupil premium funding and I would encourage you to work with other schools in your region ”

The Deputy Prime Minister went onto invite the school to the awards ceremony at the end of June where it will be in with a chance of winning the National Award.
