At Safa British School, we believe that all students should be given a wealth of opportunities in all areas of the curriculum, inside and outside of the classroom.
The experiences in the creative arts encourage children to explore so much more than skills and knowledge; they develop confidence, self-reflection, problem solving, perseverance and empathy.
At Safa, we believe in introducing Drama at a young age. Our drama curriculum begins in FS1 and goes right through to secondary level drama.
Our Drama lessons vary from process drama (learning life skills and problem solving through role play and drama conventions) along with product drama (working towards an end product or performance).
Students are introduced to a variety of percussion instruments for the first time. They are encouraged to explore, through play, how sounds can be made and perform rhythmical patterns together. They learn songs that are repetitive, rhythmical, that help with counting and of course, for performance, such as Carols by Candlelight. Students listen to disco, funk, classical and romantic music, and are encouraged to respond to this music through movement.
At Safa British School the Primary Art department is a vibrant and creative place where our goal is to engage and encourage students, creating an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated. We aim to equip every student with the information and ability to work independently. In Primary Art at Safa students are introduced to a wide range of media including paint, clay and watercolor.
The Primary Art course is designed to set a strong foundation in the following areas, which we then build on in later years:
Safa British School have introduced food technology for the first time this academic year and our current Year 10s have been able to select this as a GCSE subject. We look forward to continuing to expand the access to this subject in the future.
As part of the GCSE course, students not only prepare food, but they also look at costings when buying food and preparing a meal. A vital part of the course is diet and nutrition, ensuring they are able to produce a balanced family meal.
We strive to deliver a curriculum that not only bridges the gap between secondary education and higher education, but ensures the tools, techniques and processes are of industry standard and practice too. We teach students how to think critically, conscientiously, and divergently when generating ideas, with the aim of manufacturing products with purpose and value.
