In Key Stage One, our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, creative and enjoyable curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow. At Jeddah Prep and Grammar School our planned curriculum has been designed to meet the diverse needs of all the children in our school community through:
At JPGS, we believe that ‘happy children learn well.’ Child and adult wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. We are a family. We use our Cambridge Attributes (Confidence, Responsible, Reflective, Engaged, and Innovative) to promote positive behaviours and attitudes to learning. We equip our children with a thirst for new knowledge and experiences, with the drive and enthusiasm to become lifelong learners.
Our Growth Mindset approach instils resilience, perseverance, self-worth and an ability to learn from our mistakes. Community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum, welcoming families and visitors to facilitate learning new skills and sharing experiences. They have the confidence and skills to make good choices and friendships.
How do we consider the content and teaching sequence in each subject?
The curriculum consists of many planned experiences in school and out, including lessons, topic days, assemblies, clubs, sports, educational visits, workshops, fund raising, and community work. Outcomes may be designed to meet the requirements of the new (2014) UK National Curriculum but also to develop the skills needed for learning and for life.
