Our Primary School is a distinct and self-contained zone, housed on the ground and first floor, separate from Foundation Stage and the Secondary School. Years 1 to 4, along with the primary Arabic, Islamic and Inclusion Department are on the ground floor, with Years 5 and 6 and other primary specialist facilities above on the first floor. Each year group is arranged in an organic cluster design, with classrooms for every year, grouped together. Distributed between year groups are the communal indoor activity areas, which are used in a variety of ways, ranging from focused, small-group teaching sessions, to collaborative, student-led group work to project-based activities, as well as for break times in the warmer months.
On the first floor, in addition to the Year 5 and 6 classrooms and indoor activity areas, are the dedicated primary specialist facilities, including a Music Room, a STEM suite consisting of a Science Lab and Computer Lab, an Art Studio and a Primary Library. These specialist facilities have been designed exclusively for the use of our primary school children and are accessible only to them. Our primary specialist facilities are integral to delivering the high-quality, all-rounded British education that has been such a well-regarded feature of our sister school, Victory Heights Primary.
The primary school premium facility has been designed to promote children’s independence whilst ensuring a safe and secure environment and has therefore been designed with a high level of passive supervision in mind. There are separate boys and girl’s toilets visibly and strategically placed off the indoor activity areas, and offices for the academic leadership team are scattered throughout the primary school, in the heart of the teaching and learning areas, facilitating a high level of observation and monitoring.
