OVERVIEW

The first years of schooling are extremely important in every child’s development.

Children develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially throughout this time. Starting school can be a daunting and difficult experience for any child, and it is therefore crucial that children be able to settle into the school environment as calmly, smoothly and comfortably as possible. For some children it is harder than for others, and it is essential that all children see the environment as being a warm, welcoming and happy place.

At Awfaz Global our small class sizes are able to provide the small group nurture that means that our pupils will not get ‘lost’ as they may have done in other larger schools in the past. We provide children with a planned, co-coordinated program based on the English Early Years and Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We have a separate campus for the Early Years groups and provide age appropriate resources for each of our cohorts.

The Early Years and Foundation Stage is a program designed to develop key learning skills and to allow children to learn to work together with other children. This is achieved by planning activities which enable each child to reach Early Learning Goals at the end of the Foundation Stage.

One of the most important aims of the Foundation Stage is to prepare the child for Key Stage One. As every child develops at their own pace, the Foundation Stage encourages them to reach their full potential as well as giving them the intellectual, physical, social and emotional skills needed at Key Stage One. 

In the first year of the Foundation Stage, in our KG 1 the program focuses on each child’s intellectual and social skills. Encouragement is given for the child to develop at their own pace, and much of the focus is on the individual needs and interests of the child.
