British Educational Schools (BES), English National Curriculum education culminating in IGCSE, from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 11 IGCSE.
English National Curriculum
The Early Years Foundation Stage (3-5 years):
In Nursery & Reception classes (age 3-5 years) the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) programme, designed to provide opportunities for all children to succeed in an atmosphere of care and feeling valued.
Children gain knowledge and develop skills in 6 areas of learning specified in the British National Curriculum:
· Personal Social and Emotional development
· Communication, Language and Literacy
· Mathematical development
· Knowledge and understanding of the world
· Physical development
· Creative development
Key Stage One & Two (Primary)
In the 6 years of the Primary Level the pupils begin the process of formal learning alongside daily Literacy (English) and Numeracy (Maths) lessons. They are also introduced to the key concepts of Science, Geography, History, Information and Computer Technology (ICT), Art and Design, Design & Technology, Arabic, Islamic or Christian Studies, Music and Physical Education. We follow the Sudanese National Curriculum in Arabic, Islamic Studies and Christian Studies, and the English National Curriculum in all other subjects, and modify a portion the History Curriculum in each year group to ensure that all students study Sudanese history. English National Curriculum subjects are taught by generalist Primary Class teachers, while other subjects are taught by specialist teachers.
Key Stage 3 (Secondary)
After year 6, students begin Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9) and are taught by specialist teachers as opposed to the generalist class teachers in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.
