Curriculum

Iqra Pre-school follows the British National Curriculum for the foundation stage, children from the age of three up to the end of the Reception year. The early learning goals set out in this curriculum set high expectations for the end of the foundation stage, but expectations which are achievable for most children

We provide learning experiences of the highest quality throughout the foundation stage while allowing flexibility to the unique needs of each child, ensuring a secure foundation on which future learning can build. Our contribution to this critical stage in the early development and learning of the children is a hugely positive one. Children develop rapidly during this time - physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. The foundation stage is about developing key learning skills such as listening, speaking, concentration, persistence and learning to work together and cooperate with other children. It is also about developing early communication, literacy and numeric skills that will prepare young children for key stage 1 of the national curriculum.

The development areas are as follows: 

  • personal, social and emotional development;
  • communication, language and literacy;
  • mathematical development;
  • knowledge and understanding of the world;
  • physical development;
  • creative development.

Continual individual support is provided by classroom assistants who are also qualified to teach. Support children follow the same learning plans as the rest of the class but at a slower pace.

The very full academic curriculum is supported by extra activities both inside and outside the school. There is also a weekly exercise session, an annual sports day, weekly assemblies and other outside educational and fun trips.
