Primary Years Programme
At AUS, we wil be recognizing the importance of developing and maintaining students’ literacy in their mother tongue, English, Hindi and a Foreign Language. The primary language of instruction will be English. Students whose English language competency does not meet grade level requirements, will be supported with an English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme.
At AUS our Mathematics curriculum will aim to provide a sequential, activity-based programme that will enable students to learn through the provision of developmental experiences that relate to real-life situations. Teachers will provide Maths lessons in conjunction with national and international standards progression points. They will provide extra support through individual learning improvement plans where required.
Design and Technology
AUS will be providing a new and dynamic educational landscape where our student’s learning will be raised in digital spaces. Students will get to use and appreciate different kinds of information, related skills and digital platforms. The school community will ensure that students gain a positive educational experience by understanding how to use the internet and web-based devices safely, responsibly and smartly.
We will be providing a curriculum to every student with the opportunity to develop into a physically-educated person; one who learns skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities is physically fit and understands the benefits of involvement in physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.
Visual and Performing Arts
Our Arts programme will provide a way for each student to understand their own cultural context and create art within that context to explain their country, their culture and their society to the worldwide community. The language of arts, such as musical notations, gestures, images and movement will give our students skills of creative processes that are likely to be essential for 21st-century citizens.
Assessment and Reporting
Assessment and reporting will be an integral part of the teaching and learning programme at AUS. Assessment tasks will include tests, observations, peer discussions, work samples, presentations, performances and projects. Criterion-referenced assessment will be the basis of all formal assessments at AUS. We will be reporting to parents and students both formally and informally.
AUS will offer a mix of co-curricular activities that are age-appropriate, challenging and engaging. These programmes, be they performing arts, crafts or sports, will be open to all students so as to help them develop skills and an appreciation of life-long learning, having fun and learning to play as a member of a team.
As a core component for AUS students, the action-oriented approach will encourage our students to be involved in activities as individuals and as part of a team that will take place in local, national and international contexts. Through experiential and service-based learning, there will be an enhancement in their personal, interpersonal, social and civic development.
