Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

ABC Private School has been established for the purpose of teaching children, not only what they need to succeed in the real world by way of practical skills, but also to teach them the values that they need to cherish and uphold all their lives. This was essential, in our opinion, if children are to have the wisdom to deal with the world with a sense of balance. ABC always felt that knowledge must be accompanied by the wisdom to use that knowledge in the right way. Without this balance, the knowledge can often be destructive, both to the author, and to those for whose 'benefit' it is being used.

ABC Private School strives to bring about this sense of balance in its students, to help them apply what they learn with humility and wisdom, so that the end result will be harmonious and productive. Children are taught, through classroom teaching and other innovative methods, to become responsible citizens for the world of tomorrow.To this end, the school espouses a Value Based Spiritual Education Program (VBSE), that endeavours to teach children the values that they need, so that they go into the world as balanced and excellent individuals.

Teaching approach of the school

The ABC Private School will deliver the National Curriculum of England. The curriculum establishes clear guidelines and standards for the subjects that children study while allowing teachers the freedom to shape the curriculum to meet the needs of the pupils.

From KG Stage through to Grade 8, all students will inquire and explore and develop the knowledge, skills, talent, character and attitudes that will empower them as global citizens.

Guiding Principles for teaching and learning throughout the school are:
- Every child is a unique, who is constantly learning and will develop resilience, capacity, confidence and self-assurance.
- Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
- Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between teachers and parents.
- Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
