The English curriculum is broad and balanced and provides for the academic, moral, physical, creative, personal and social development of every child. In our school we recognise that learning consists of:
In order for this to take place the students must:
• be active in their learning • be encouraged to think for themselves and become independent learners
• be encouraged to work with each other • make progress and be challenged in each area of learning
Children are taught in small classes, by fully qualified British teachers who deliver the curriculum in the English language.
Some year groups are currently combined due to low student numbers. We anticipate that this will change next year as student numbers increase, giving us the funds to employ individual teachers for most year groups.
Specialist subjects are taught by different teachers, who are all qualified in their particular field of teaching. The school follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales, together with the Cambridge International curriculum, to ensure consistency throughout the whole school.
The Arabic curriculum is taught throughout the school.
Students in Year 1 to 6 follow programmes of study in the core curriculum subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT, together with the foundation subjects of Humanities, Modern Foreign Languages, Art & Design, Music and PE.
Some learning is delivered through topics, whilst other aspects are dealt with on a subject basis.
Students in Secondary follow more advanced programmes of study in the core curriculum subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT, together with the foundation subjects of History, Geography, Modern Foreign Languages, Art & Design and PE.
