Developing A Citizenship Curriculum Through An Islamic Perspective

Welcome to the Islam & Citizenship Education Project

It gives us enormous pleasure to welcome you to the ICE website

The Islam and Citizenship Education Project has been developed and coordinated by the School Development Support Agency and was jointly funded by then Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Department for Communities and Local Government. The SDSA is a not-for-profit company, and is best described as a leader of partnerships and projects that improve outcomes for children and young people.

The project team has taken the national citizenship programme of study that UK schools use and added the Islamic guidance. Our approach is essentially to teach citizenship values through the Islamic perspective. Our overarching conclusion is clear: citizenship values and Islamic values are broadly compatible. Indeed all participants agreed-that to be a good Muslim is to be a good citizen.

If you have any suggestions or comments please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thanks
