CURRICULUM & ASSESSMENT

Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum (2014), we adapt and enhance this with Arabic, Islamic, Holy Q’uran and Makarim lessons. Learning is always exciting and is taught through a meaningful context for children. Where commonality exists between subjects and aspects, learning is linked and lessons taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not achievable, subjects are taught discretely. The rehearsal and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum is a driver for the entire curriculum.

We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident independent learners and successful adults. Children rapidly begin to read independently in our Year 1 classes by following a phonics programme. All children engage in daily literacy skills session where they develop their reading and comprehension skills in addition to developing a command of all aspects of the English language. In addition, all children take part in a daily English and Mathematics lessons.

At Al Jazeera Academy Primary School, children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect and understanding of all people. A rigorous, well planned curriculum, delivered by excellent staff in an ethos of care and support enables our pupils to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a thirst for learning and respect for all around them.
