Academics Curriculum Information
We follow the National Curriculum for England for the subjects taught through the medium of the English language (English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Geography/History, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education, and Citizenship). The Ministry of Education Curriculum for the UAE is followed for the teaching of Arabic, Islamic Education and National Education.
We use the framework supplied by the Cambridge Primary to develop English, Mathematics and Science skills and knowledge in young children. The Cambridge Primary provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning, and allows teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress.
The Cambridge Primary consists of a number of components that fit together to provide schools with tools they can use to help students acquire knowledge and skills.
The Cambridge Primary Curriculum Framework which helps teachers develop high quality programmes for teaching English, Maths and Science.
The Cambridge Primary Progression Tests which are available for the last four years of primary education and designed to allow teachers to follow the progress of their students over time and analyse performance within their classes and against an external benchmark.
Cambridge Checkpoint which will be taken by students at the end of their final year of primary education. CIE will moderate this test and issue students with Certificates of Achievement.
Primary Teacher Support Services.
Preparation for Secondary School
Students are assessed at entry to the school and then on a continuous basis throughout the year. Teachers keep parents updated on their children’s progress through individual appointments, the school diary and on Parent/ Teacher Conference days.
