We aim to be one of the best British Curriculum Primary Schools in Egypt. As such, we deliver the National Curriculum for England (NCFE).
The learning areas for Key Stage One are stimulating, beautiful and fun, encouraging children to play together. Whilst still supporting and enabling the critical social and learning behaviours from the Foundation Stage, children in Key Stage 1 begin to develop more sophisticated skills as they increase their confidence in academic skills.
Learning in Years One and Two maintains a play-based, inquiry-driven model, but with slightly more structure. Planned independent and pupil-led approaches ensure that our children’s individual contributions are valued and that they grow in confidence as they begin to realise their value and contribution to the wider school community. Children acquire knowledge and skills through questioning, exploring and discovery.
Your Key Stage Two child will embark with confidence on more challenging and goal-oriented learning opportunities, both independently and within collaborative teams. In Years Three to Six, they are encouraged to take more ownership and direction of their learning. Your child will grow and flourish through Key Stage Two into a confident, curious, independent learner.
In Key Stage Two, pupils are given various opportunities to participate in musical, sporting, artistic and academic activities. The Pupil Council and other leadership roles offer our older students leadership opportunities; sharing their ‘voice’ and contributing to the school and wider community through a number of valuable projects.
More specialised learning centres are availed to children in Key Stage 2, including a Science Laboratory, Food Technology Room, Art and Design Technology Rooms, EIT (Enterprise, Innovation and Technology) Lab, a PSHE Room and a dedicated Primary School Library.
Our GREAT (Gifted, Really Enthusiastic, Able & Talented) Program uses a ‘whole-child’ approach where each pupil has a GREAT profile across each subject so that we can assist them in developing their strengths and interests. Each subject area has a cohort to stretch and challenge, and pupils who are gifted and talented in 3 or more disciplines, join our whole school Talented and Gifted cohort where they will be given extra guidance and mentorship to truly fulfill their potential.
