In line with the English National Curriculum for Foundation Stage, we use a thematic approach to teaching, based on the Early Learning Goals:
Communication and Language
Listening and attention
Moving and handling
Health and Self-care
Personal, social and emotional development
Self confidence and awareness
Managing feelings and behaviour
Shapes, space and measures
Understanding the world
People and communities
Expressive arts and design
Exploring and using media and material
As an international school in Spain we are committed to teaching Spanish as a core subject from early years through to A-levels and University access.
From the age of 2 children are immersed in a bilingual environment, stimulating the early acquisition of both Spanish and English. Spanish is taught as a subject to all children from Foundation 2. From Year 3 it is taught at different levels – as a modern foreign language and at advanced/native level. All Spanish and many non-native children follow our first language programme in Primary.
