Primary is the five years of education. Students are placed in classes depending on age.

This Key Stage upholds and promotes the Mission Statement of Ghars International School.

Primary Curriculum

We offer an International Curriculum based on the English National Curriculum which is a balanced curriculum including the following subjects:

Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Information Communications Technology, History, Geography, Art, Physical Education, Arabic, Islamic Studies and Personal Social and Health Education.

Within the curriculum areas, we ensure that we:

  • Provide a wide variety of educational opportunities.

  • Offer challenges, enjoyment and success in the pupil’s work.

  • Plan breadth and balance of curriculum.

  • Provide equal access and opportunity.

  • Provide a curriculum that will be well-matched to the student’s needs.

  • Will show differentiation, progression and continuity in learning.

  • Will provide a curriculum relevant to society today.

  • Teach how to learn (i.e. processes, not just acquisition of knowledge).

  • Complete curriculum documentation is available at the school in the Key Stage 1 Curriculum Booklet.

In addition to the curriculum, we aim to develop confidence, independence,

self-discipline and positive working, and social relationships.
