The Primary Curriculum

 

At G.E.S. we try to create an environment in which children immediately feel welcome and a significant member of their class group. Teachers make every effort to get to know the students quickly as individuals and as learners. It is our belief that only when a child feels comfortable and secure can they give of their best academically.
The school teaches the English National Curriculum. At the end of each Key Stage ( Year 2 and Year 6) the children take the same assessment tests as the UK, known as SATs.
Parents receive regular communication on what their child is learning in school.
Children are regularly assessed and targets set. Students take home targets which they are working on in Maths and Language. Parents are encouraged to help their children to achieve these targets. Children receive a formal, written report at the end of terms one and three.
All classes are mixed ability groupings. Class sizes are a maximum of 29.
Children in Pre-KG (aged from 3 years) followed by KG, undergo a school readiness programme which prepares them both socially and academically for the more formal work starting in Reception.
The school day consists of nine lessons with two breaks. All text books and equipment used in the school are imported directly from the UK and represent a cross section of the most up to date subject material available.
Written homework is given weekdays for all children in Years 1 – 6.
Specialist help is available for children joining the school who may need extra support. We also provide specialist support for children who are having difficulty keeping up with the study programme.
