Nadeen School heading
Since 1978, Nadeen School has been dedicated to providing a nurturing, safe, stimulating, and encouraging environment in which children of all ages, nationalities, abilities, and strengths can develop a lifelong love for exploration and learning.

Welcome to Key Stage 2

Through all of our Key Stages we have a focus on the holistic child and the life-long learner. This ethos and continuity of practise unites all three Key Stages in to our "Small School - Big Family."

Student Council Meeting

KS2 comprises years 3, 4, 5 and 6 (ages 7-11).

The 8Cs' form the foundation of the educational journey that our children make:

  • Confidence - being able to take risks in our learning and tackle hard challenges
  • Curiosity - wanting to know about the world around us and always asking questions
  • Creativity - turning new and imaginative ideas into reality
  • Collaboration - working with others to achieve goals and overcome challenges
  • Communication - being able to express ourselves freely and respectfully
  • Craftsmanship - trying as hard as we can to produce the best possible outcome
  • Commitment - being resilient learners and never giving up
  • Critical Thinking - having the ability to solve problems and think independently.

We believe that if children are equipped with these interrelated skills, they can learn anything and will be successful, lifelong learners.

As children get older, we encourage them to take on more responsibility, both for themselves as learners and within their classroom and school environment. Just one example of this is our Student Council, who undertake responsibilities such as organising school fundraising events, helping to shape the vision of the school and liaising between children and the leadership of the school.

In years 5 and 6, we use Google Ed to inspire, challenge and motivate children to learn independently and develop our 8Cs. All children use a Google Chromebook to facilitate their learning.

We teach the English national curriculum, which we adapt to our needs and enrich with extra-curricular activities, trips and special days.

We believe in a holistic approach to learning and developing the whole child, not just a narrow focus on academic achievement. We do this in many ways but two examples are: we have a small farm where we grow vegetables and keep chickens and ducks (the year 6s sell the eggs in order to pay for the upkeep of the farm) and the occasional visiting goat! We encourage entrepreneurship through student-led businesses.

One of our 8Cs is communication. We use a number of different platforms to communicate with parents (such as Class Dojo, Classe365 and Google Classroom) because we believe that home / school communication is essential to ensure good learning. We have an open door policy at the school, meaning that parents can meet with class teachers and school leaders formally and informally on a regular basis.
