On this stage we give importance to the development of working habits, autonomy and self-esteem. For this reason, we identify this stage with the premises of motivation, effort assessment, cooperative learning, sport, information and communication technologies, and a structured curriculum full of high level contents.
Pupil’s responsibility is improved with constant contact with the families, having personalised tutorials in which are monitored by our Educational psychologist. Every month, the tutor sends a report about the students’ evolution, allowing the parents to be informed about their continuous evolution and improvement.
What do we have on this stage?
ICT usage. Digital whiteboards are installed in all classrooms. Teachers have Internet connection which makes the learning process more dynamic as they can experiment with interactive educational resources. Teachers carry out their lessons through them achieving an excellent result in their pupils.
Fostering our school values. It is essential that children learn to respect the people who surround them, their environment, and the objects and resources that are at their disposal.
English as lingua franca. In Primary Education we follow the British National Curriculum. Most part of the academic time is taught in English by qualified English native speakers who own the QTS certification that is required by the British Government to teach the curriculum. In order that the learning process of the different languages is effective, it is important not to mix them. For this reason, the teachers use the language that they use to teach their subject to talk to the students in any part of the school. In the same way, the pupils talk to the teachers in the language that they are used to listen.
