Gaining a Strong Foundation of Computer Science & Coding
Our bespoke curriculum enhances the National Curriculum of England, prepping students with a range of necessary digital skills of the modern world. As a Microsoft school, our students are power users of Microsoft Office365, SharePoint, Class Teams and OneNote. They also use a range of learning apps to support and augment their learning.
In Computing and Project-based Learning, students have access to high-quality convertible laptops and iPads to effectively combine both traditional and digital methods of reading, writing and learning, whilst accessing the latest software programmes.
Our state-of-the-art “X Lab”, “LaunchPad” and hi-tech publishing and media studio provide students with the provision they need to create the future and develop their collaboration and innovation skills.
Lower Key Stage 2
In Lower KS2, students gain a strong grounding of computer science and coding, developing a broader understanding & knowledge of the algorithmic process and computational thinking. They are introduced to SMART and block-based coding languages. They learn early word-processing and publishing skills, including Microsoft Office365, SharePoint, Class Teams & OneNote, not only for collaboration and publishing but also for app and website prototyping.
In our XTeam Junior, students take computing to a whole new level as they learn to apply STEAM thought processes. They invent and code their own physical games, toys, quizzes and prototypes, and become adept at analysing and solving problems.
Upper Key Stage 2
In Upper KS2, students broaden and deepen their understanding of computer science, learning a variety of programming languages such as HTML, CSS and Python to name a few. They code Raspberry Pi’s to and electrical components to produce real-world outcomes such as satellites and rovers They learn about Artificial Intelligence, robotics and SMART technologies. Squads hard-code live websites to publish, celebrate, share and enhance both their class and personal learning, whilst others learn about design thinking processes to create solutions to challenging problems.
Students are introduced to a broader range of Microsoft Office365 features including Spreadsheets and Forms. They develop leadership skills such as handling the technical lighting and sound for musical productions, teaching and supporting the XTeam Jr, and even publishing their own learning series on Youtube.
In the XTeam Senior, students expand on Project-based Learning, inventing and innovating with physical computing (codable electronics & Raspberry Pi) to create their products which we call “X”. They learn to use design thinking to produce answers to questions not yet asked – we call it “creating the future!”
By the end of KS2, students develop a strong foundation in digital literacy, design thinking and problem-solving as well as further their inventiveness and resourcefulness.
Challenges & Competitions
Throughout the school, Regent students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of coding competitions, hackathons, STEAMathalons and other events. Regent has won many firsts in STEAM and Edtech competitions some of which include the following: we were recognised by DEWA (Dubai’s government water and electricity authority) for creating a SMART Shoe for DEWA Robotics Competition; scored 1st place for Design an App Competition; won the Grittiest Award in the national #ParOne STEAMathalon; and scored 1st place in 5 categories in the national Unified Robotics.
Regent is an outstanding school
and provides an outstanding quality of education for pupils from three to 11 years
Very strong Curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
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.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative – they truly make primary school a memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
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.
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.
