Organization & Planning
The curriculum delivery is in different stages:
PRESCHOOL: The curriculum is designed keeping in mind the physical and intellectual development characteristics of two to four year old children. In the Reading Curriculum, they learn, understand and use a variety of new words. In numbers, they count, identify and create patterns.
Arts and Craft introduce the young ones to expressing themselves through arts. Children also learn about things in their immediate environment which helps to build their interest in exploration.
Our Preschool Curriculum provides a strong foundation for a variety of subjects.
PRIMARY SECTION: The curriculum is broken down in different stages - Foundation Stage, Key Stage one and Key Stage two.
The Foundation stage is for the Reception class. Here, the curriculum is planned to meet early learning goals. Teachers teach by building on the Preschool experiences. Children are introduced to different subjects.
Key learning skills such as listening, speaking concentration and persistence in completing given tasks are developed here.
In the other Key Stages, subjects are taught separately and more in-depth. The curriculum is planned carefully so there is consistency and full coverage of all aspects of the curriculum.
Parents support is important for a balanced school progress. We work together to maintain a good relationship with the parents, keeping them informed about their children’s progress.
Monitoring & Review
The Director of the school monitors the way the school curriculum is implemented. Each subject is reviewed according to the policy review timetable.
The Director also liaises with the Head teacher and monitors the way subjects are taught closely.
The Head Teacher is responsible for the daily organisation of the curriculum. The lesson plans for all teachers are monitored to ensure effective delivery in all classes.
