Introduction

The primary curriculum, catering to students from Years 1 to 6 reflects the very best of British education, enhanced and enriched by our international context. Our students are encouraged to become proficient lifelong learners through the explicit development of the KLASS learner attributes - Happy and Healthy, Respectful, Community Minded, Independent Learners, Communicators and Problem Solvers.

Our flexible, learner-centred curriculum is personalised and designed with our students in mind, to better meet the needs of each individual learner.

We believe that Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is also a vital part of our students’ education and that it should underpin all their learning. For this reason, PSHE skills are embedded in both our curriculum and everyday life at the school. We believe that our unique PSHE programme enables our students to become healthier, develop a sense of self-worth and learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive, responsible member of our diverse and multicultural community.


Courses

Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2)

In Years 1 and 2, your child will experience free flow classrooms enabling them to select the activities planned by our teachers that interest and stimulate them the most. Your child will develop skills more quickly by engaging them in this way than in a formal class setting.

 

Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6)

In Years 3 to 6, our flexible, well planned cross-curricular units encourage students to make sense of their learning by creating links between subjects and the real world. Learning initiated by student questions is encouraged, celebrated, tracked and recorded as part of the connected and authentic learning process.

Planning is based on the teacher’s reflections and their knowledge of your child. Content is not fixed each year which allows for a genuine connection with our ever changing student body and current affairs around the world, in addition teachers have clear skills that your child should learn each year. After an initial period of baselining, our teachers plan to meet their abilities, needs and interests in class.
