Nadeen School, established in 1977, follows the English National Curriculum, and also draws on ideas from Australia, New Zealand, and the USA. The school is one of six quality assurance rated Outstanding schools in Bahrain. The school motto: Small School - Big Family, perfectly captures the school's ethos and atmosphere.
There are currently 400 children enrollled in classes from Pre-Nursery to YEar 6. All continents are represented in the school population, with an average of 50 different nationalities in the school.
The school comprises 4 blocks - Infant, Junior, and Activity Blocks, each with its own garden and playground space. The main playground contains 2 separate areas covered by sun canopies for large wooden climbing structures and other playground equipment, and a large paved area for bicycles and tricycles. The Activity Block contains our Library, Teacher Resource Room, IT Room, Music and Drama Studio, Learning Support Room, ESL Room, Language Classes, Cooking Room and Kitchen, AV Room, Soft Play Room, School Farm, and a Vegetable and Flower Garden.
Children are taught in whole-class, small-group, and individual sessions with the class teacher and academic support staff. Much of our work is topic related, so Art and Craft, History, Geography, Science, and Design-Technology are incorporated into these centres of interest, as well as being taught separately. Music, Drama, Dance, PE, and Cookery are in the weekly syllabus for all children.
The school maintains a low pupil-teacher ratio: Pre-Nursery - 1 teacher, 4 assistants; Nursery - 2 assistants for each teacher; Reception to Year 6 - 1 assistant for each teacher, as well as learning support and academic support staff. The school is well known for its very caring and nurturing environment, its family-oriented atmosphere, and for its welcoming, open door policy.
Nadeen School remains a non-selective school based on the idea that all children have the right to an education. Our admissions policy states that we will take any child on the proviso that we can meet their individual, unique needs and that by meeting their needs we do not adversly affect the other children in the class. Our Learning Support Department caters to mild-moderate learning needs during 1:1 and small group sessions within the school morning.
Our Learning SUpport deparment currently comprises 4 full time learning support teachers and 3 qualified learning support assistants. The Learning Support team work closely with the class teachers and senior management to ensure that all children's needs are met in a warm, friendly, and encouraging learning environment.
