During the next academic year, I continue my role through school overseeing Arabic and Islamic. This role offers me the chance to continue to raise the profile and promote Arabic and Islamic culture and heritage within the school and wider community. Alongside this role, I will also oversee Secondary Assessment, taking the leading on ensuring there are clear assessment and reporting procedures in place within the school, enabling us to provide timely and accurate reports to our parental community.
Having worked closely with Rehab Khalifa and Feras Al Tahaineh over the past two years, I look forward to continuing our journey moving forward. My role is to support, assist and continue to build upon the excellent foundations to achieve our goals. Importantly, as a school built upon a community ethos, I also look forward to meeting and building strong relationships with our Arabic and Islamic Parental Communities, recognising the important role our parents play in reinforcing the pillar of community at Safa. With my new role leading on Secondary Assessment, I hope to make a clear and coherent assessment and reporting cycle that helps to clearly showcase the outstanding attainment and progress of our students from Year 7-13.
Since becoming a teacher in 2011, I have had experience as a Middle Leader, leading both History and Humanities Departments in the UK and UAE and have now completed my second year as an Assistant Headteacher. During my career, I have overseen the development of teaching staff at various stages of their teaching journey, providing them with the necessary coaching, guidance and mentoring to become reflective practitioners in their subjects. I have also had Whole School Responsibility in the UK overseeing Key Stage 3 (Secondary) reporting, leading staff INSET, teacher training and the tracking/analysis of Key Stage 3-5 (Secondary) data and have had two years Whole School Responsibility overseeing the Arabic and Islamic Departments at SCS. I look forward to using my previous experience with assessment and reporting to support Safa in its journery to achieving ‘Oustanding’.
