Head of Primary Message Week 14

Term 1 comes to a close and what a brilliant way to end, with a series of musical performances in the ISB Theatre. Year 5 took to the stage and performed a dance routine and a song, they reached for the stars in both. It was also a delight to welcome the Singing Stars Choir to the stage, performing with confidence in front of an audience for the first time as a group.

The standout successes this term have been a direct result of the exceptional work of the ISB staff. Teachers, Learning Assistants, Learning Support Assistants and Support Staff have all worked tirelessly to ensure the fundamentals are in place and consolidated. The work that goes into ensuring every student excels is phenomenal. We don't follow 'gimmicks' or 'trends', we do what we know works, practice based on evidence and research to ensure the best outcomes for all.

This term, we have hosted sports day events, released a new episode of Rez & Tang, held workshops for parents, presented certificates to competition winners, taken a deeper dive into Maths learning and shared information with parents, continued with Free Write Fridays, celebrated our learning journeys, challenged ourselves with bar models, hosted parent - teacher consultations, rocked our times tables, participated in House Week events, been on residential in Temburong, slept overnight in school, just kept swimming, introduced our new Student Council, excelled in sports competitions, shared food, opened our doors for stay and play, launched new library spaces, celebrated during International Day, sent postcards into space, offered a plethora of extra curricula activities and much, much more....

There has been a particular focus on further developing our curriculum to ensure every child has a deep, conceptual understanding and is able to use and apply new knowledge. We have continued to develop and refine our curriculum and what has been achieved is fantastic.

Staff genuinely care for each individual student and create a sense of joy every day. Students are motivated as a result of their fantastic achievements across each area of school life.

The ISB community can be very proud of everyone involved in this process.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable end of term break and we can't wait to see what we can achieve together in 2023.

Mr Michael Everett | Head of Primary
