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.
