Head of Primary School

“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.” - Gilbert K. Chesterton

Warm Welcome from the Head of Primary!

Guided by the philosophy that a holistic approach to learning in the formative years of a child’s education is absolutely vital, I firmly believe that it is important for educators in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) to recognize the uniqueness of each child. With this in mind, it is essential that teachers develop learning and teaching strategies that suit every child’s learning style and ability.

The early years of a child’s education sets the foundation and becomes the cornerstone of all future learning. It is at this stage that students must begin to take responsibility for their own learning. At Jeddah Knowledge International School, our aim is to develop a safe and secure environment where students will thrive, work to their maximum best and become lifelong learners.

The curriculum in the PYP affords our students the advantage of a well-rounded, global and holistic education and also allows them to remain rooted in their culture and faith. Our focus is to celebrate who our students are and develop in them a sense of pride while at the same time preparing them to function effectively in a constantly changing international environment. While we recognize the importance of academics, we also emphasize the development of our students’ personalities through the promotion of social skills and personal attributes which will serve them well into the future.

A hive of activity, the PYP offers a range of curricular and co-curricular activities such as sports clubs and school-wide campaigns which provide students with the opportunity to develop their skills and talents while at the same time keeping them on par with the highest international standards.

The PYP at JKS has created a warm and nurturing environment for students and we look forward to developing students who are prepared to confidently take their rightful place in the global arena!
