Awfaz Global School follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales, and models itself on an English Curriculum school. We follow the National Curriculum objectives for English, Mathematics and Science. History and Geography are merged together to form Social Studies. However, the breadth of the study as mandated by the National Curriculum of England and Wales lacks geographical or social relevance for our students hence adapting the Qatari cultural and history preservation. This is in line with our vision, mission and objective statements, which seeks to create global citizens who are compatible with Qatari, Arabian and Islamic society. Religion is not compulsorily studied in the National Curriculum so is taught by specialist Islamic teachers to both Arabic and Non-Arabic students.
Our computer lab managed by specialist ICT teachers is fully equipped to cater for our student body needs. The ICT lab contains sufficient set of desktop computers and an interactive white board. The ICT specialist follows the National Curriculum but with amendments to cater for our student needs and 21st century requirements and changes. The fully functioning and equipped art room provides teacher and students freedom of creativity and inspiration during their lesson.
The art curriculum is based on the National curriculum of England and Wales but is at times altered to cater for the cultural and geographical background of our students and for special events such as Qatar National Day celebrations.
English, Mathematics and Science, the school currently uses Pearson’s Active Learn, Abacus, Science bug and Edexcel with the introduction of Twinkl and Wordsmith for 2018-19. This will continue in the Academic Year 2019-2020. These resources support the National Curriculum of
England and Wales. The resources provided include, but are not limited to online lesson plans, homework sheets, reading books, interactive tasks, worksheets and assessments. Teachers implement relevant features into their lesson planning.
Differentiation is an important part of the teaching and assessment within AGS. Lessons are planned to focus on the needs of the students, taking into account different learning preferences, ability levels, social and ethnic composition of the class. The learning objective of every lesson is clearly stated. It is an expectation that teachers use a variety of teaching methods in which to engage their students.
The pedagogy which aims to comply with the philosophy of our school mission and vision has to demonstrate the various learning styles such as critical thinking order so that our students can make future decisions and collaborate with others in the context of student-centred method of working.
