Sikh school, where faith is integral to education

Sikh school, where faith is integral to education

In London this cover supervisor feels valued by the pupils at her Sikh school, where faith is integral to education. And she loves the unpredictability of a timetable that spans all ages and subjects. My day starts at 5.30am when I wake up and get ready. Then I rouse my children and help them prepare for school. My son attends the school where I work, so we make the short journey together, alongside other pupils who merrily wish me a good morning. As we walk, my son and I discuss the advantages of leaving the car at home – by avoiding the queue of traffic we manage to arrive on time. Guru Nanak Sikh Academy is based in the borough of Hillingdon in West London. It’s a faith school that was established in 1999 as a voluntary-aided institution. In November 2010 it became an academy. Two years later, it merged with the local primary to become an all-through academy catering for four- to 18-year-olds. It is heavily oversubscribed, with a large waiting list across all year groups.
