Primary curriculum

Rashid Primary Section provides an education for students from 3.5 to 11 years. All our students have English as a second language and are taught a modified version of the UK National Curriculum, with a strong emphasis on a multi-sensory, cross-curricular learning throughout the school.

Our students are enrolled at three and a half to four and a half years old and enter the Foundation Stage where they take part in a 2 year program following the UK Early Years Foundation Curriculum. The students are taught 6 areas of learning. These are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development 
  • Communication, language and literacy 
  • Problem-solving, reasoning and numeracy 
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world 
  • Physical development 
  • Creative development

The UK National curriculum is divided into core and foundation subjects and is taught by fully qualified, first language, English teachers. The core subjects are Language and Literacy, Numeracy and Science. The foundation subjects are history and geography, art, sound Technology and Physical Education. ICT is integrated across the curriculum and our students have discreet ICT lessons taught by a specialist teacher.

The Arabic curriculum is also an integral part of the education provided at RSB. There are two main areas of study taught by fully qualified first language Arabic teachers. The students learn Arabic language and literacy and are taught about Islam and Islamic values, including their cultural identity as citizens of the UAE.

The school has a dedicated Learning Support Department that responds to the individual needs of particular students and offers support both in and out of class.
