Primary Years

Key Stage 1 and 2 - Years 1 to 6

Throughout the school there is a 3-form entry. Staff are fully qualified and experienced to make children feel at ease and settled in their surroundings, so they can progress and develop their skills thoroughly in reading, writing and arithmetic.

The school follows the National Curriculum for England in the teaching of English, Maths and Science. The International Primary Curriculum has been adopted to cover History, Geography, Music, Art, IT, PHSE and PE to provide children with a broader education.

There are daily Arabic lessons for all pupils up to and including Year 2. First language Arabic speakers will continue to receive Arabic from Year 3 onwards whilst French is offered to non-Arabic speakers. Muslim children also have Quran lessons. 

French is taught to Years 5 & 6 with an emphasis on speaking and listening, in tune with I.G.C.S.E. requirements.

There is a system of internal assessment and reporting so that each child's progress and development can be noted. Parents receive a report at the end of each term. There are Parents' Evenings in the Autumn and Summer terms when there is an opportunity to speak to the teacher about your child's progress. Teachers are happy to speak to parents at other times to discuss children's progress.

The school offers language support, but does not have a special needs department. Homework is given to all Key Stage 2 children and staff expect it to be done diligently.
