Update from the Principal.
Eid Mubarak, best wishes to our families and school community, we wish you all a joyous and relaxing Eid.
Yesterday, during our Earth Day assembly by Year 6, we enjoyed a range of information about how we can get involved, have an impact and how to look after the world in which we live in. A huge congratulations to Year 6 for an excellent student-led assembly which was very informative, interesting and packed full of different facts. We also enjoyed updates about speech day, student/star of the week and also celebrated our Ballet Extracurricular Activity with Ms Bella who presented awards to student achieved the UK Ballet Bronze award (Picture at the top of this update). Well done to everyone involved.
This week we have celebrated with our Eid parade and it was such an amazing way to start the day for us all. To see the students dressed with a variety of traditional colour, details and designs made everyone proud to recognise this occasion and was such a positive event to host. A big thank you to all parents who spent time preparing children for the event, it was very worthwhile and my first experience of our Eid parade.
Thank you to our parents and PTA for organising our uniform sale, also to the parents who supported this, we are very grateful as it is very helpful to all families.
A video of our new campus has been shared on the Nadeen School Instagram and this shows the clear progress made in the past week. Each day we see further rapid developments as the completion moves closer. Thank you to the parents at drop off for your kind comments about the new building and for those who have recently visited the building on a school tour. It is really taking shape at the moment and we are almost there!
Each day, we thoroughly enjoy drop off and seeing everyone arrive in the morning. I am so happy each day when I hear parents wish their children a “great day”, “have a wonderful day” “enjoy your day” or “I love you”… These comments, smiles and warm start to the morning are so important and it is a fantastic way to begin the day with our students. The maintenance/security staff model this further with the careful supervision, positive greetings and then students see their friends in the playground even before they visit the class to see their teachers! – This is something we need to keep for the new building, our approach, in how we welcome, check in with and greet students each day.
Finally, a huge thank you to parents who have offered help and support recently in many ways. We’ve had volunteers to help supports ECAs, helping new families to our community, applying for roles in the school and actively giving up time to one another. We have thanked families and continue to do this. Having this positive approach, actively involved and being flexible no matter who pops up is very much appreciated.
I wish you a nice break and look forward in seeing everyone return to school on Wednesday 26th April.
Have a wonderful weekend

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.
