Pre-Reception, Reception and Years 1-6 of the English Stream at NISL follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales primarily for core subjects; Literacy and Numeracy.

We very much promote thematic teaching which means that our students meet all learning objectives related to other subjects such as Science and History, in a cross curricular and topic based fashion. We call this learning for life and proudly integrate The International Primary Curriculum into our weekly timetable.

Our teachers provide a natural progression through the six years of primary education as well as differentiation within the year groups to meet varying abilities/learning styles. We promote an enquiry-based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement. Our curriculum aims to enable learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop critical skills in order to respond to a range of information, media and texts with enjoyment and understanding.
