Bloomfield Hall School - Academic Standards
Junior School to A Level
Pre-school years (Reception, Foundation & Pre-1)
The early years require a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment for children’s physical, mental and emotional development. Children are born ready to learn and their brain development is hugely influenced by their experiences with people and the world around them. Care-givers (parents, teachers, guardians) have a crucial role to play in providing a safe, wholesome and creative environment for young minds to thrive.
The curriculum for Pre-school includes English, Urdu, Number Work, Sensorial activities, Music and Art & Craft.
Children are continuously assessed for the skills they are expected to have acquired as well as personal development. Assessment is based on activities in class and at home. Homework is set only on Fridays to be completed over the weekend. At this stage, there are no formal tests or examinations.
Only in exceptional cases and in consultation with parents, a child may be asked to repeat a year.
Classes 1 – 3
The subjects taught include English, Maths, Urdu, General Knowledge (Science and Social Studies), Islamiyat, Art, Global Outlook and Computer Studies. Music lessons are also part of the curriculum.
Assessment in English, Maths and Urdu is based on classwork, homework and quarterly tests. In most other subjects, assessment is based on classwork and homework.
The curriculum of a school reflects its aims and ambitions. Bloomfield Hall has two major targets: at the academic level it prepares students for O-Level, and at the cultural level it is a liberal institution which encourages independent thought and critical enquiry among its pupils.
