Overview

Facilities

Our Primary school is equipped with facilities to cater for Art, Music, PE and ICT. All classrooms are fitted with an Interactive white board and projector, which allows for the use of interactive programmes used for teaching and learning. Classrooms have modern tables and chairs with lockers and cubicles for the pupils to store their bags, books and other equipment. We also have a large range of text and workbooks that are used in the classrooms for various subjects, all of which come from the UK. Added to this, the Primary school has a large range of effective resources to assist the learning process. Stationery required in the classroom is also provided by the school.

Home and School

All learners have Homework Diaries allowing messages to be transferred to parents and caregivers. In addition we use an online managerial system to link further with parents. Each week a ‘Curriculum Contact’ form is sent out giving parents the opportunity of viewing the work planned for the coming week. All teachers use the Class Dojo system which enables parents to receive added information. We also send a Reading Record Book home each day with a record books their children are reading. At the beginning of the academic year we have an orientation evening where parents are introduced to the teacher and the methods of teaching, our behaviour management system and the like. In the following terms there are also meetings between parents and teachers to discuss the reports. We also have open mornings where parents are invited to spend some time in the classroom to watch the teaching and learning taking place. Additionally, at certain times during the year, parents are invited to the school, for example for Science Day, the December Concert, Novruz Concert and the BSB Bazaar etc. The PTA is another extremely important area where parents can become involved in the school and we invite parents to join.
