A Trip to the School Farm
You are warmly welcome to Golden Foundation School
At GFS, we have a team of qualified and experienced teachers, who go through sporadic professional development trainings.
Our classes are small and teachers are able to cater to the individual needs of our learners, nurturing their well-being and fostering a strong sense of community. We encourage our learners to develop independence and responsibility in their learning and acquire not only a life-long love of learning, but also an inquisitive nature and a keen interest in the world around them. To build this inclusive environment, we respect and value the differences and diversity within our community.
We offer a safe, nurturing environment where we promote a love for learning. We want each one of our learners to be inspired and to enjoy their time with us, as we equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to live full and enriching lives every day, now and in the future.
Your Career Path Begins Here
All learners will be assigned to a tutor who will be responsible for monitoring their overall progress both within and outside of class. This is to ensure that the objective of a rounded education remains integral to the learning process of all learners. Learners will be provided with homework, which must be submitted to their class teachers on due dates. It is the responsibility of both learners and parents that all homework is completed and handed in by due dates without exception.
Cambridge Programmes and qualifications set the global standard for international education. They are are created by subject experts, rooted in academic rigour and reflect the latest educational research.
The four stages of Cambridge Pathway lead seamlessly from primary through secondary and pre-university years. Schools can shape the curriculum around how they want students to learn.
We develop our Cambridge learners to be confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged - equipped for success in the modern world.
The physical well-being of children has a direct impact on all aspects of their lives, therefore all children will attend physical education. In addition, the extra curricula activities offered will include various sports that pupils can participate in after school.
The success of learners in school depends largely on the support they receive at home. It is therefore crucial for clear channels of communication to exist between parents and class teachers as well as the school at large.
In addition parents will be invited to Parent-Teacher Conferences at the beginning and end of every academic term to discuss expectations and evaluate the performances with class teachers and also to review the work of their children. Aside these formal arrangements, parents should always feel welcome to book an appointment with class teachers whenever they wish to discuss issues about their children.
Our Pre-School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) programme from the UK. The EYFS curriculum is rich and varied, reflecting the school’s mission, and is rooted in a culture of inquiry. This is particularly important for learners as it is during these early stages that they develop essential skills in reading, writing and numeracy. Learners are also supported at a variety of reading levels. The Foundation Stage covers seven areas of learning and development which are interconnected:
- Communication and language development
- Physical development
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive art and design
From Year 1 to Year, our students follow the Cambridge Primary Curriculum. The Cambridge curriculum focuses on the three core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. There is a clear framework for each subject in which teachers have the flexibility to adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of their students. Progress is measured by use of the Cambridge Progression Tests given each year from Year 3, and the externally marked Cambridge Checkpoint assessments at the end of Year 6 in English, Mathematics and Science.
We also take keen interest in subjects like French, History, Geography, Music, PE and Global Perspective. The curriculum promotes the development of international-mindedness and personal learning goals which are focused on:
