Throughout this learning journey, our academic team will assist students establish a sound foundation of knowledge and experience a holistic approach to education through a wide range of integrated disciplines drawn from experimental sciences, activities (learn through play), sports and after-school enrichment activities (under development).

At Ramsis Private School, we believe that parents play a fundamental role in the education of their children. To be successful, we believe it is necessary to establish a strong partnership between the school and the family, where honest and open dialogue can be exchanged. Parents are encouraged to attend curriculum information sessions, read curriculum information provided via the school’s parent portal and meet with teachers to ensure a clear understanding of the learning goals, concepts and language specific to subjects and year levels.

At RPS, the concern and care for each child takes precedence, at all times. Our programmes offer a framework that aims to meet each child’s academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs.

At each stage in a child’s development, we aim to build self-confidence and a sense of independence, responsibility and ownership in what they do and how they do it.

EYFS Curriculum

EYFS curriculum is used to measure the progress through age related milestones in Foundation Stage. There are 7 aspects (Early Learning Goals or ELGs) of Early Years development. The Prime areas given below are fundamental, work together, and move through to support development in all other areas

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development.

 

The Specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children to participate successfully in society:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

 

The Foundation Stage curriculum is an integrated thematic approach that ties the separate disciplines together into studies of the physical universe, the world of nature, and the human experience. In this way, one lesson leads to many others.

Foundation Stage materials focus on a concept or skill and are designed in such a way that children are naturally drawn to want to work and learn, with little or no intervention from adults. Material is also designed so that a child can normally check his or her own work; we call this a built-in “control of error”. The intention of the materials is not to keep the children dependent on these artificial learning aids forever; they are used as tools to help children work and learn at their own pace, to see abstract ideas presented in a very concrete, three-dimensional way, and to help them grasp and understand what they are working on.

Foundation Stage students learn not to be afraid of making mistakes. They quickly find that few things in life come easily, and they can try again without fear of embarrassment.

Primary School

UK National Curriculum frameworks are used for English, Mathematics, Science and ICT. Arabic and Islamic Studies are taught through the curriculum stipulated by the Ministry of Education. The children are the center of the learning process and the best pedagogical practices worldwide are focused upon.

The school supports non-English speakers through our EAL programme which involves small group support to improve a child’s English involving speaking, reading and writing skills.

Secondary School (In Development)

This builds on the work in the Primary section. The programme follows the teaching of the UK National Curriculum for students in Year 7 to Year 9 offering a broad and balanced curriculum. This includes English, Mathematics, Science as well as Arabic, Islamic Studies, ICT, Art, French, PE, Humanities, and Music.
