At Al-Khair Preparatory School, our dynamic and experienced teaching staff provide an environment that inspires, encourages, develops, and above all cares for our children as individuals. The depth of the curriculum combined with the breadth of opportunity is designed to help them grow into independent individuals who are adaptable, resilient, creative, and motivated to continue learning throughout their lives.
At Al-Khair, we place the wellbeing of our children at the forefront of all our decision making especially when faced with challenges. This year we have dealt with possibly our biggest challenge of the COVID-19 situation.
Al-Khair Preparatory School has been fortunate in ensuring that all the children within our care have received a structured education since lockdown.
The online remote learning systems were set up at the beginning of March in preparation for any such occurrence enabling us to begin teaching as soon as the government made the decision to shut all schools. The children were taught a varied curriculum via online lessons with the support of their class teachers. Maintaining this link with their teachers has allowed the children to maintain some sort of normality.
At Al-Khair Preparatory School, preparations have been made for September whereby course content will be revised and assessments are undertaken to ensure all children achieve their potential. The small class sizes and attention to detail will all be instrumental in developing the core skills so essential in their formative years. Our recent Ofsted inspection highlighted this as a key strength “Leaders discover quickly when pupils are not remembering enough. They then take steps to change the way teachers put the agreed plans for learning into practice”.
“Leaders and staff project a strong desire for every pupil to achieve well. They speak with a common voice when describing what they want pupils to learn and remember. Teachers make sure the agreed subject plans are taught accurately.” (March 2020).
The staff and management at Al-Khair Preparatory school have always prioritised the emotional wellbeing of each child. We will be working hard to assist the children to readjust back into school life as well as helping them cope with any trauma, loss or anxiety they have experienced throughout these last few months. Ofsted saw this as an area which they rated as outstanding “Leaders consider pupils’ well-being thoroughly. Pupils told us they feel confident to tell an adult if they think they are being bullied. They remember what teachers explain to them about different types of discrimination.” (March 2020).
We are excited about the new academic year and are looking forward to seeing all our students as well as welcoming all the new admissions. We hope that schools can remain open but in the event of another lockdown, we have all systems in place and are confident to continue teaching a full timetable.
