Key Stage 1: Approach
Empowering our youngest learners to achieve their goals

In Key Stage 1 at Regent International School we offer personalised education for each child. We achieve this through delivering an Outstanding curriculum which centres around each child’s passions, interests and needs. We know that children achieve Outstanding academic results in the EYFS so we believe we should continue this style of engaging, creative and explorative learning. Though the skills and content taught progresses and the challenges increase we believe our children can tackle these skills using a range of skills taught in a creative and purposeful way. We believe that children need a reason and a purpose to learn and therefore lessons are based around real-life outcomes and achievements. For example, when teaching children to write we do not just practice to write letters, instead, children write letters asking to go on trips, they write advertisements for shows they have created and ‘wanted posters’ for lost toys. This approach means that children are engaged and fully invested in their learning and it also ensures that they are applying skills that they have been taught in lessons.

At Regent International School we believe that children should not be judged on academics but how they progress holistically. Each child has an individual target based on something that they want to achieve whether that be performing a dance in front of the class, learning to paint or throwing a basketball into a hoop. This empowers children at a young age to see that they can achieve goals that they set themselves which is a powerful message to send to our youngest learners. This approach combined with our Positive Education philosophy ensures that children learn how to progress and assess their individual character strengths in order to face every day challenges both inside and out of the classroom.

We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.

We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.

Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.

There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

RIS Parent

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,

it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.

Regent has given my daughter a new start.

This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
