Date Palm Primary School focuses on its pupils’ Strong Foundations (Character Development), Lofty Branches (Educational Excellence) and Fresh Fruit (Service to Communities) – just like a Date Palm tree. Located in Tower Hamlets, the School comprises three premises within walking distance of each other, with the main premises at Greenfield Road catering for pupils aged 3-11, additional Nursery and Reception classes on Philpot Street, and the youngest children aged 2 & 3 at the site on Mile End Road.

The co-educational independent school was established in 2012, and caters for a wide range of educational abilities, with a full-time SENCo, and a policy in place for children with Autism, Dyslexia, Speech and Language Difficulties, Sensory & Physical Difficulties and SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs). Admission is not selective at Date Palm Primary School, though class sizes are limited to a maximum of 25 children. Preference is given to applicants with siblings at the school, early applicants, locals, attentiveness/punctuality at nursery, ability to pay the fees and supportive parents.

Date Palm Primary School utilises the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as a play-based curriculum for children. Following Reception, the curriculum for Years 1-6 extends alongside the national curriculum subjects, and covers aspects of the Seerah of Prophet Muhammed (SAW) and other Prophets, pillars of Islam with a strong emphasis on Tajweed and Hifdh. As Ofsted reports, though, ‘the school provides a full and broad secular curriculum as well as Islamic studies’.
