Key Stage 1

Ensuring an outstanding learning

Welcome to Key Stage 1 at Deira International School.

Our staff are committed to ensuring your child continues on their learning journey in an environment that provides stimulating and exciting learning experiences. Our strong patrol ethos allows each child to feel safe, secure and happy coming to school each day.

Transition from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 is vital and our supportive program ensures every child settles into their new environment. We cultivate a love for learning by nurturing each child’s personal strengths and interests within the broad and balance curriculum provided at DIS. This is achieved through creative and stimulating learning experiences where children feel valued, confident and reassured. This is underpinned by our staff’s commitment to supporting each child’s social, emotional and cultural development.

Cross curricular links are embedded within the Year 1 and 2 curriculums with a focus on the acquisition of learning skills. Teaching strategies are varied according to the purpose of a task and personalised to reflect the needs of the child. At DIS our teaching reflects our belief that happy and confident children learn most effectively.
