Primary School – Phases 1 and 2
(Early Years – ages 3 to 7)
The Primary School is both the longest period of a child‚Äôs education and the time when the most connections and discoveries take place. Our Primary School provides a rich and dynamic learning environment for children from the age of 3 to 11 years. To support the children in navigating this learning journey our Primary School is structured into four distinct phases as follows:
Phase 1 (ages 3 to 5) Nursery and Kindergarten
Phase 2 (ages 5 to 7) Years 1 and 2
Phase 3 (ages 7 to 9) Years 3 and 4
Phase 4 (ages 9 to 11) Years 5 and 6
During this critical time, children learn to read, write and build the foundations of numerical and scientific understandings.
To achieve this strong foundation, young learners need to be nurtured in a safe and happy environment, one where they can lead their learning – take risks and make mistakes and learn from every new experience. This is particularly true of learners in the early years (Phases 1 and 2) of Primary School.
The curriculum in our early years (Phases 1 and 2) is based on the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). Our PYP is an educational curriculum and philosophy that is authorised and evaluated by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
