Faith

The Eden Girls’ School, Waltham Forest is a school with an inclusive Islamic faith ethos. We are proud of our faith, its values and its emphasis on a shared view of humanity – one family and one world for which we all share responsibility. We take a progressive, outward-facing, inclusive and globally-orientated interpretation of the Islamic faith.

Everything we do is designed to enable all our students to live their lives according to the values of self-discipline, compassion, mutual respect for all people regardless of difference and respect for the earth itself. These fundamental values underpin the Islamic faith and our British way of life.

The school aims to celebrate all that faith has to give and instil a sense of joy at being part of the local and wider community. We have an inclusive approach to faith, welcoming people of all faiths and none and recognising that we are all part of, and contributing to, something far greater than ourselves.

We place great emphasis on character development – promoting values such as respect, care, tolerance, self-discipline and love for each other. We promote an ethical lifestyle, enabling our learners to feel empowered to fulfil their responsibilities to themselves, their families, wider humanity and the environment around them.

Regardless of their religious beliefs, we want to prepare all our students to become high achieving, fully engaged citizens in multi-cultural 21st century Britain. For our Muslim students, we want to help them to explore how they can apply faith values in their everyday lives as committed and tolerant members of British society. We want them to become model British citizens, inspired by faith to uphold fundamental British values, reject extremism in any form and to prosper as part of British society. We want them to make a genuine and determined contribution and, by their actions, to demonstrate the best of what the Muslim faith can contribute to British life and culture.

We are not associated with – or subscribe to the views of – any faith organisation or movement.
