Primary School

A warm welcome to PACE British School

At PBS Primary we believe in a safe, nurturing, positive learning environment for all to learn. We have a collaborative, inclusive learning culture whereby we support everyone to be their best. We believe in nurturing the whole individual both children and staff – socially, emotionally and academically.

As head of school, I have high aspirations for our school community – children, staff and parents alike. We are a smart school with children who are proud to wear our PBS uniform. The pupils apply themselves in the classrooms and demonstrate exemplary behaviour throughout the school environment. More importantly, we are a happy school with pupil and teacher wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.

Academic excellence for all is what we aim to achieve. The high calibre academic staff go above and beyond to ensure the children excel and progress beyond curricular expectations. Extra curricular activities enrich our curriculum and allow the children to engage in a range of activities.

Do be sure to visit our campus soon.

Warm regards,

Mr. Rajivsinh Jethiji

The primary curriculum includes; English, Maths, Science, Arabic, Islamic (optional), Moral Education, Social Studies, Humanities, PE, Expressive Arts, IT and French. The children also have a range of extra curricular activities to engage in at the end of the academic day. The primary years involves two milestones: key stage one and key stage two.


Key Stage One

Key stage one consists of the first two years in lower primary: year 1 and year 2. Year one is a transitional year where the children enter, having graduated from foundation stage, and require to be transitioned from continuous provision to a gradual increase in formalised learning. In year one the children build on their foundations, learning to read and write independently. Their mathematical abilities are significantly enhanced as they begin to explore numbers up to 100 and begin to skip count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. By the end of year 2, the children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. They should be able to confidently read and write and spell words that are phonetically plausible, in addition to most high-frequency words. During key stage one, all children embark on a reading and writing programme known as Read Write Inc. By the end of KS1 most children should have graduated from their phonics intervention ready for Key Stage 2.

Key Stage Two

Key stage two consists of Year 3 and 4 (lower key stage 2) and Years 5 & 6 (upper key stage 2). Throughout the key stage two years (Y3-Y6), the children learn to; write with flair, acquire mathematical skills and scientific knowledge that they will begin to apply in real life situations. The primary curriculum is a constructive, progressive, skills-based curriculum which allows children to build on what they know and learn new skills along the way. Key stage 2 will progressively become more complex without overwhelming the child. The children learn to code in IT, explore new languages such as French, Arabic and English and study topics involving History and Geography. By year 6 the children will have a firm foundation and strong skill set which will enable them to embark on their secondary school experience with ease. Transitional links between the primary and secondary departments and both Heads of Schools enables a smooth transition for all pupils in our care.
