Welcome to our Primary School
Our Primary School caters for learners from Nursery (aged 3-4yrs) to Year 6 (aged 10-11 yrs), providing them with a transdisciplinary education. We are an IB PYP school and deliver the English National Curriculum through an inquiry based approach. At NCBIS, pupils can experience the joys and challenges of learning as we guide them to develop skills and attitudes essential for their future. Creativity and curiosity are fostered as expanding minds wonder, question, and eagerly tackle new challenges.
Small class sizes allow our well trained, professional teachers and teaching assistants to focus on individual student needs. Children experience active, well supported and resourced lessons often driven by their own questions. Classes have regular opportunities for outdoor learning as well as educational visits to locations around Cairo.
We recruit only the highest possible caliber teachers from all around the world and all our teachers in the Primary School are qualified to teach in the UK. Our staff represent 7 nationalities and are made up of over 60 dedicated child-centered people, including a dedicated learning support team. Fluency in English is a requirement for the staff working with the pupils.
Home School Partnership
Developing a partnership with our parents is very important to us and extremely important for our pupils’ success. We communicate regularly with all our parent community through whole school newsletters, our Twitter feeds and also regular year group blogs. Our pupil planners also provide daily communication between home and school.
In addition to our formal parent-teacher conferences, which we hold throughout the year, we invite parents to participate in workshops, and to share their ideas and feedback from our units of inquiry at regular meeting opportunities throughout the year. We also ask the pupils to share and reflect on their learning with their parents in a Student Led Conference, which is a highlight for the year. Additional to this, parents are welcome to visit the school at any time.
