Primary Curriculum Overview

‘As pupils progress through the school, they become reflective learners who are critical thinkers and can work in teams. They are confident and resilient learners who show a deep enjoyment of learning.’

BSO inspection report 2022

The Curriculum at Safa British School comprises of all learning and other experiences that we plan for our children, and it works in collaboration with families and the local community to provide opportunities for all children to learn and to achieve. We consistently promote children’s social moral, spiritual and cultural development and prepare all children for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of life. 

The curriculum of the school is organised so that children are stimulated, encouraged and challenged to develop their individual potential and personality to the full. Curriculum overviews and schemes of work are aligned with UK expectations outlining a clear progression of skills for each year group.

Learning Gears

There are 6 Safa Learning Gears – the skills of collaboration, curiosity, self-management, GRIT, creativity, research and thinking are ‘assets’ for all learners. Children bring these assets to school in some form – our job at Safa is to help grow them to add value to the capacity to learn. These assets can be nurtured and deepened throughout their time at school.

Our SBS Learning Gears are interwoven throughout the Plan It curriculum and daily life at Safa. The Learning Gears provide the learning skills and values that our students need not only to successfully shape their own lives but also to contribute positively to the lives of others.
