Teaching approach of the school

Al Rabeeh School is trialling ‘setting’ in core subjects of English and Mathematics, in some year groups. This enables students to develop and progress according to their individual needs.

The curriculum is planned in detail by class teachers and grade leaders to ensure work is well matched to meet the learning needs of the children. Every child is challenged to reach their full potential. Whole school theme days are held over the year e.g. history days, culture and creative arts days, book week, book fairs, science, environment and maths days. Al Rabeeh School holds annual charity events and other fundraising events.

All students are assessed on a regular basis to monitor progress towards meeting the standards required for entry into the next phase of their education. UK standardised assessments are now being used to help support reporting and measure progress and attainment.
