SCHOOL ORGANISATION

The school is organised into;

Toddler
Nursery 1
Nursery 2
Nursery 3
Grade 1

Where there is more than one class in a year group, pupils are assigned on the basis of both their ability and compatibility in term of individual need. As such, pupil grouping, together with Baseline Assessment on entry, allows work to be closely matched to each pupil’s stage of development.

THE CURRICULUM

We are committed to developing the cross-curricular elements of a child’s education. In common with many other schools locally and internationally, we have adopted the international primary curriculum which is a blend of Montessori, British, American, Frobel and local content curriculum. This promotes, exciting topics based learning that has a global understanding and relevance to the children. This enables the children to explore a concept from different subject perspectives without putting up unnatural boundaries. It also encourages the teaching of transferable skills and a love for life learning.

        We teach the children in 3 different stages.                                                    
A.     The Foundation stage (nursery and reception classes)                                                                                   
B.     Key stage 1 (grade 1-2)                                                                                    
C.     Key stage 2 (grade 3-6)

                         THE FOUNDATION STAGE

          The children in the Nursery and Reception classes follow the foundation stage of the international curriculum. The Foundation stage has to 6 areas of learning:
