Update from the Principal.
Thank you to everyone for attending our Open Day this morning, it was wonderful to see so many parents and to have the opportunity to share with you what we see and experience each day with our amazing students!
This week we have enjoyed an assembly highlighting Cystic Fibrosis through our ‘Crazy Hair’ day, thank you for your support and enabling so many students to take part in this important awareness day. During the assembly, Mr Matt explained the purpose of the day, what Cystic Fibrosis is and thanked the students and staff getting involved.
Some great articles for you to look through below:
This week we’ve been in lessons and seen some fantastic learning in Year 3 and 4, continuing our commitment to see every class for full lessons this term.
Also, this week, as part of out professional development for staff, we talked through the recent BSO inspection report and identified areas to improve that could be added to our school development plan. This is an item I will share with parents at the next coffee morning.

- Only parents of Nursery, Reception and Year 1 should be accompanying students to their classrooms.

We will continue to work together to follow all health and precautionary measures to prevent the spread of diseases as recommended by the Ministry of Health specialists. Together with your constant cooperation and taking responsibility by keeping your children at home when feeling ill, will also have a significant impact in limiting the spread of diseases. Thank you to all members of the community in advance for this.
UPDATE – In light of the entry of the influenza season early this year, whose symptoms are similar to those of the Corona virus, The following must be recalled to contribute to the fluidity of education in schools and to preserve the health of students and the academic and administrative staff:
1- Remind parents of the need to keep the student at home if he has symptoms .
2- Follow the necessary precautionary and preventive measures to prevent its transmission among students. These are displayed around school.
3- Reminding parents and all teaching and administrative staff in schools of the availability of seasonal influenza vaccines for this season in all health centers.

As you might have seen, this summer it was announced that it is no longer mandatory for schools to provide Virtual Learning for students, shared by the Ministry of Education on Tuesday 2nd August 2022.
The Ministry of Education has announced that the syllabus system for the coming academic year 2022/23 in all kindergartens, schools, universities, government and private educational institutions at all stages will be mandatory attendance for all students. The ministry clarified that there would be no choice for parents to attend their children to receive in-person or remotely learning, assuring its keenness to provide for all the requirements for a successful back to school.
At Nadeen School, following the announcement from the Ministry above, our provision for learning will be on site.
For students unable to attend or overseas, we will offer an extra provision to help support with Year 3 and above, including:
- Students will be included in Google classrooms to have the same access as those onsite.
- A link to a curriculum plan for all year groups.
- A weekly class email from the teacher.
- An appointment to discuss your child/their progress over email or an online meeting when required.
- Access to our book list covered in school.
- The resources from the online subscriptions used on site will be available.
- An opportunity for a teacher/student conference if needed, as directed by the class teacher.
We hope all students have the opportunity to be back on site. We look forward to the new academic year and following the Ministry guidance above for our students at school.
