Primary

Primary

Our children are encouraged to be creative and therefore every opportunity is taken to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills through technology, physical education and the creative and performing arts.
Our teaching and learning environment enables our children to fit into any board or curriculum, as we prepare them beyond the expectations of a single board or curriculum.

From the Foundation Stage (LKG & UKG) the children move into Lower Primary (1st, 2nd, 3rd std) followed by Middle School (4th and 5th std). They then move on to Upper Primary ( 6th and 7th std), followed by High School ( 8th, 9th and 10th std). The core subjects of Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History , Political Science, Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and additional languages (Kannada and Hindi) as well as the supporting subjects PE, Yoga, Arts and crafts.

It is our intention to seek a better balance and give more equal status to all the subjects we must cover while recognizing that proficiency in Literacy and Numeracy underpins a person’s ability to make sense of the world. Accordingly, our children are encouraged to be creative and every opportunity is taken to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills through technology, physical education and the creative and performing arts. Through the curriculum we aim to celebrate diversity and challenge discrimination.

Assessment

Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process and is a tool which aids our planning for learning. We track children’s achievement, attitude and progress closely. Children are encouraged to work with teachers to identify where they are with their learning, what their targets are, and what steps they need to take in order to achieve their targets. We set medium and short term targets with the children which personalizes their learning so that they can achieve their full potential.
