Update from the Principal – 9th February

Update from the Principal.


Dear Parents,


Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria.  We have set up a donation collection post at school and have a link for donations sent out to the community.  We are working very closely with those that can help and are in contact with the Embassy.  Thank you to everyone who has supported this cause and we very much appreciate your kindness. More information below in this update.

At Nadeen School, we take huge pride in our students leading their learning, writing about their passions and a whole host of student led opportunities.  Since August 2022, we have 7 Student voice articles published and two editions of our student-led newspaper.  We look forward to creating more student led opportunities as this is a strength of the school and one we want to continue to build upon.

The annual BSME conference is 28th February to 2nd March 2023, I will be attending this and the theme is ‘Designing a Brighter Future: Educating Tomorrow’s Global Citizens’.  We have lots to look forward to working with BSME and many plans to make with regards to student events, sports and professional learning for staff.  These are common areas that have come up over the last few months and ones that I am keen to plan ahead with to ensure everyone at Nadeen School have those opportunities.  I will see all parents at the next coffee morning on Thursday 13th April with updates and plans ahead.

Have a great weekend!

Paul Walton

Drop Off Point 

Please can parents use the Drop Off Point, if possible, in the mornings.


Drop Off – Parents on site

  • This option of walking students on site remains open for parents of children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1, as normal.
  • Also, we have the option for any new parents to drop off their children to the class for the first 2 weeks.
  • After this, Year 2 to Year 7 students must be dropped off at the front of the school.
  • Only parents of Nursery, Reception and Year 1 should be accompanying students to their classrooms.
  • Parents of students in Year 2 to 7 must make an appointment to see the teacher (to avoid disrupting learning, lessons, target time), an email to the teacher or to contact the reception if this is an emergency.


Thank you in advance for your understanding and support.

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.

Virtual Learning

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:

  1. Students will be included in Google classrooms to have the same access as those onsite.
  2. A link to a curriculum plan for all year groups.
  3. weekly class email from the teacher.
  4. An appointment to discuss your child/their progress over email or an online meeting when required.
  5. Access to our book list covered in school.
  6. The resources from the online subscriptions used on site will be available.
  7. 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.
