Foundation Stage (age 3-5) & Primary School (age 6-10)
A Warm Welcome to EIC Primary
At EIC, we firmly believe in the individual learning journey of each child. Our Primary School is staffed with qualified and experienced teachers, whose mission is to offer a balanced and broadly based-curriculum, which can then be tailored to individual needs and specific year groups. We pride ourselves on being a fundamental building block in children's lives and helping them to succeed and reach their goals. It is our job to ensure that the children in our care are well-rounded, well-supported and confident to be able to navigate not only environments where they feel comfortable, but also the wider world.
The EIC Primary Learning Culture
Creating a motivating and safe learning environment is the priority for all primary staff; where everyone is able to experience success, feel valued and have high self-esteem. There is a consistently positive approach to maintaining appropriate behaviour and celebrating the success of one another.
Our learning culture begins first and foremost with the exceptional teaching that we are able to offer our students. We offer a curriculum that is comparable with any found in top British primary schools. We are able to do this by ensuring staff are kept up to date with all curriculum provisions and developments in the UK, and that they are given the flexibility to be innovative and creative with their teaching.
We are one of the few primary schools who can boast specialist teaching in Computing, Music, Physical Education, Spanish, French* and Mandarin* to all students from the age of 3. In turn, this allows for EIC students to be exposed to a variety of teaching styles and rich, challenging learning opportunities, taught by subject experts. We are justifiably proud of our unique and nurturing learning culture within the primary school. EIC Primary offers more than the spirit and feeling of community; it offers a sense of family, of being and of belonging, and this is why our students consistently make outstanding academic progress, whilst also being kind, happy and motivated young individuals.
*from Year 4 upwards
We set limits to class sizes from 14 in Foundation to 20 maximum in selective classes. Children have the opportunity to have their learning personalised and tailored to suit their individual needs. Students have more one-on-one attention from the teacher, ensuring they progress more quickly.
Our high academic standards lie at the heart of our pedagogy. The vibrant engagement between teachers and students makes learning at EIC a unique opportunity to shape a world full of possibilities.
While occasionally engaging students in Virtual Reality lessons, availing them to 3D printer technology and familiarising them as far as possible with future technological trends like AI, we still aim to provide a balance between using technology effectively, whilst ensuring that the fundamental pillars of learning, such as a passion for reading, quick maths skills and the ability to show compassion and care for others are strongly embedded in all of our students.
The EIC vision reflects the key values of our community. We believe learning does not happen in isolation but through the support of peers, staff and families. Trust becomes the foundation of meaningful relationships at EIC.
