Our Primary teachers are qualified and experienced to make your child feel at ease and settled in this big stepping stone in their school life, so that they can progress and develop their skills, especially in Literacy and Numeracy.
Edison International Academy Muaither follows the National Curriculum of England in teaching English, Mathematics, Science and Social studies. Music, Art, ICT, PSHE and PE are incorporated into the curriculum to provide all children with a broader, more balanced education. In addition, we offer daily Arabic lessons from Year 1 to Year 6, and Muslim children will also have Islamic Studies lessons. Children are also introduced to the Modern Foreign Language of French, with one lesson a week in Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2), and two lessons a week in Key Stage 2 (Year 3 – Year 6).
Homework is given to all children in Primary, which is designed to complement and enhance the learning in the classroom, and children are expected to complete this diligently.
Throughout the Primary classes, there is a system of internal assessment, so that each child’s progress and development can be documented. These may include regular spelling tests, end of unit tests, etc. In accordance with the National Curriculum Guidelines for Student Assessment, there will be more formal assessment at the end of the school year (see Assessment Policy).
There are Parent-Teacher-Meetings towards the end of each term, where parents have an opportunity to discuss their child’s academic progress with the teacher. However, our teachers are happy to speak to parents at other appointed times, too.
The Primary department offers learning support, but does not have a special needs department at this time.
To complement the curriculum, our teachers offer a variety of extra-curricular activities and after-school clubs throughout the school year.
ESL Program (English Support Lessons):
As part of the ongoing support provided to pupils, the school provides additional support for pupils who are not making the expected progress in English and Math. The aim is to ensure that all pupils achieve a minimum of a (55%) D grade in these subjects. These lessons take place four times a week.
ASL Program: (Arabic Support Program):
As part of the ongoing support provided to pupils, the school provides additional support for pupils who are not making the expected progress in Arabic. The aim is to ensure that all pupils achieve a minimum of a (55%) D grade. These lessons take place twice a week.
FSL Program (French Support Lessons):
These extra lessons were implemented by popular demand of parents who would like to enhance their children’s French language skills. These lessons take place twice a week.
We believe that extra-curricular activities is a great support system for our curriculum. Not only does it give students an opportunity to discover and explore their talents, it is also a wonderful socialising tool, which allows students to strive for excellence and contribute positively to the global society. There are a variety of activities ranging from reading, art and robotics to football, taekwondo and gymnastics.
