Head of Primary
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Primary & Foundation department of the International Academy of Kuwait School.
The Foundation of IAK is has two sections KG (Kindergarden) and REC (reception). We use in foundation the UK EYFS curriculum. In the Primary School (year1 to 6) we use the UK National Curriculum. The adjusted UK Curriculum develops English and Mathematics skills. In addition to these core subjects, the school provides a curriculum in Science, Humanities, PE, Art, ICT and KSS. The language of instruction is English. Arabic language and Islamic Studies curriculum is implemented in our school as required by the Ministry of Education.
Our students will be engaged in reading for meaning, writing for purpose, conversing for understanding, and presenting to inform, educate and entertain. These are the fundamentals of literacy and communication for life-long learning. We provide a safe and caring environment where every child is valued as an individual. We recognize the knowledge, skills and experiences which children bring into school and build on these to ensure that every child receives challenging and appropriate experiences to meet their individual needs.
We place high value on the acquisition of basic skills as well as ensuring that the pupils experience a broad and varied curriculum. We also believe that we can only achieve the best for our pupils by working closely with parents. There are many opportunities for parents to share in their child's education and visitors are always welcome into school. I am thrilled to work with such a dynamic and diverse staff of educators. Our teachers are committed to developing the whole child and to foster intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth in each of our students. Our teachers build relationships with students and target each student’s individual needs as much as we can. Each member of our staff is dedicated to help students to be successful students and to become life-long learners. The school serves a population of many nationalities and employs an international and culturally diverse qualified faculty.
As Head of Primary & Foundation, I look forward to meeting new and returning students and families of the IAK School.
