Primary

Nothing brings greater joy than to see our children experiencing success and enjoying their learning whilst at school. We aim to achieve this through high standards of learning and teaching within a happy, structured and caring environment besides providing opportunities through a cross-curriculuar and technology driven approach.

Teaching methods are deployed to ensure that children receive personalised learning in both ability-based or mixed ability classes. As a result of this individualised learning approach, it is quite common for children to be learning different things and at different rates compared to other children in the same or different class. Gamification and active learning are ways by which we ensure that students are engaged in the learning process and their knowledge is secure.

Our curriculum strives to ensure breadth and balance by using a variety of resources from various sources. We do not encourage or prescribe set textbooks. We plan topics carefully so continuity and progression are smooth and aid development. Topics enable us to identify skills, concepts, knowledge and ideas from individual subjects and bring them together in a cohesive way.

Every student and parent in KG2 to Grade 5 receives a Weekly Letter outlining the topics and content being covered and clarify the learning focus for that period.

The primary curriculum is divided into two stages:

Key Stage 1 (KG2 to Grade 1)

Key Stage 2 (Grades 2 to 5)
