Grade 4

Cambridge Books Link:

Welcome to Disley Private School’s first upper primary class and we follow the Cambridge international curriculum.

At Disley School, Grade 4 is an enjoyable time for our students, as they begin to acquire more knowledge and skills such as independent learning, reflection and self-assessment. We develop not only children’s learning skills but their interpersonal skills. It is recognized that children learn most effectively through hands-on activities and such learning opportunities are provided in subjects across the curriculum. As well as being taught to apply practical skills, children are encouraged to think for themselves, solve problems through discussion and explain how they reach conclusions, whether this is in numeracy, history or science. Educational visits are usually linked to topics and are encouraged at least termly, taking full advantage of all that Suwaiq and the surrounding area has to offer.

At Disley Private School there is a strong sense of family and community, so we recognize that the personal development of pupils, morally, socially and culturally as playing a significant part in their ability to contribute to community cohesion. We therefore aim to provide an education that provides students with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, religious awareness, high standards of personal behavior, a positive caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures.

The academic and personal development and well-being of every child in our school is of paramount importance to us. This includes recognizing the importance of providing a range of opportunities for our pupils to respond to, that supports their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Fundamental to our school’s ethos is the belief that by educating the ‘whole child’ we are enhancing their life chances. Academic excellence is important in everything we do in order to help our pupils reach their full potential. We are looking forward to welcoming you here at this lovely school. You will see further information about the wide range of subjects offered at Disley Private School in the Curriculum.
