As parents, you entrust your children to the care and guidance of their teachers during their crucial early years of education. Our teachers at Mougins British international School play a vital role in shaping not just academic skills but also fostering social and emotional growth. In this article, we'll explore the various ways teachers support primary children in the classroom at our school. 

Creating a Nurturing Environment

We understand the importance of creating a safe and nurturing classroom environment. They strive to make the classroom a place where children feel comfortable expressing themselves, taking risks, and learning from both successes and failures. A positive classroom atmosphere is fundamental to fostering a love for learning.

Supportning Primary children in class

Individualised Attention

Every child is unique, and teachers recognise the importance of acknowledging and celebrating these individual differences. In a primary classroom, we work to provide individualised attention to each student, understanding their strengths and areas that may need extra support. This personalised approach helps children develop at their own pace and feel valued as individuals.

Building Strong Foundations

Primary education is the foundation upon which a child's future academic success is built. We focus on laying a solid foundation in subjects like literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking. They use engaging and developmentally appropriate teaching methods to make learning enjoyable and effective.

Social and Emotional Development

We play a crucial role in supporting children's social and emotional development. We teach essential skills such as communication, cooperation, and empathy through various activities and group projects. Creating a sense of community within the classroom helps children build positive relationships with their peers.
Weekly Positive Education lessons are based on the Jigsaw scheme of work developed in England.

Encouraging Curiosity and Creativity

We understand the importance of fostering a child's natural curiosity and creativity. We design lessons that encourage exploration, questioning, and problem-solving. Creative expression through art, music, and play is often integrated into the curriculum, allowing children to develop their imaginative and innovative abilities.

Differentiated Instruction

We employ differentiated instruction strategies to meet the diverse needs of their students. Recognising that children learn in various ways, teachers adapt their teaching methods to cater to different learning styles and abilities. This approach ensures that every child receives the support they need to succeed.

Getting this Information to You

Communication between teachers and parents is key to a child's success. As a school we are brainstorming more ways to show you the inner workings and processes that are occurring within our school and classroom which demonstrate these six key ways that we support your children in school.

New information has been added to the Parent Room (internal website) with a variety of links to documents that will help you in supporting your children at home.
