In the Primary School, teachers make formal assessments of the students' progress three times a year in September, January and May. These are done through internationally recognised testing methods.
We share our learning intentions and success criteria with the children so they understand what they are learning, why they are learning it and how to be successful learners.
In addition student knowledge, understanding and skills are assessed throughout the year through written assessments and further informal, continuous assessment is made by the teachers through weekly quizzes (e.g. spelling and mental mathematics / check-ups), assessed activities and through observations throughout the year.
EIS-Jumeirah does not provide an exam based curriculum in the Primary School however we will run externally moderated evaluations of students' language and mathematics skills.
You will receive reports on your child's progress two to three times in the in the academic year. Parent / Teachers Conferences which are also held twice a year provide additional information relating to your child's progress and give parents the opportunity to meet all of the relevant teachers.
