Head of Primary School
“Authentic projects that provide ‘real purpose’, capture our students’ imaginations, provide them with real challenges and the opportunity to drive their own learning, and deliver wonderful learning opportunities.”
- Glenn Hardy - Head of Primary School
In the Primary School, your child will be inspired to learn in a happy and stimulating environment.
Learning at BSM
We ensure that your child is challenged on each step of their learning journey, by getting to know each one both as an individual and as a member of our community. In Primary, your child/ren will be empowered to reflect on and drive their own learning, be encouraged to become inquiring and independent, and will be supported as they develop high quality communication skills. We value and promote the development of your child’s collaborative and thinking skills, using our class-based and co-curricular programmes.
The BSM Primary school provides children with a safe, nurturing environment where they can grasp opportunities to develop key learning skills and where they are inspired to be lifelong learners and emerging global citizens. As our vision and mission says “we aim to develop students who are equipped with skills, understanding and values to be able and willing to contribute positively to their world.”
The curriculum we follow
The Primary curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum, for English, Mathematics and Science and we integrate Information Communication Technology (ICT) into all that we do. Your children will follow inquiry-based units on identity and diversity, interdependence, sustainability, human rights and equality and ethics and morals. These aim to develop young people who want to make a difference in their world. Each Primary year group also has a service learning partner, which gives our students the opportunity to contribute to their local communities. In addition, we place a strong emphasis on Sport and the Arts - with specialist teachers in these areas - a comprehensive Co-Curricular Programme that offers additional opportunities to develop creativity and collaboration, and a Residential Programme from year 2 onwards that fosters resilience, independence, leadership and social skills.
