Educational Philosophy

Our educational philosophy

• I hear but I forget.

• I see and then I remember.

• But I do and then I understand.

• Education has evolved rapidly throughout the ages, starting from the supportive and traditional teaching method of listening to a lecture, then moving on to watching someone present a lesson, and even to the theory of the present age that emphasizes the necessity of student participation in the educational process, transitioning from teaching to learning.

• Our programs are based on respecting students' natural curiosity towards learning and discovering their surrounding world. We support and encourage their creativity, critical thinking abilities, finding answers to their questions, problem-solving, scientific research, investigative methods, and discovery techniques.

• Our responsibility is to enhance the unique personal qualities of all students, encourage them to improve their performance to achieve the highest grades by utilizing their capabilities, and provide the best human resources, learning resources, and modern teaching and learning methods that enable our students to possess essential skills.

• Therefore, Al-Bassam schools have been committed since their inception to providing quality education that suits all educational levels of students, respecting their social, cultural, and material backgrounds in a way that harnesses their learning abilities to achieve high accomplishments. To achieve this, we employ specialists who possess skills, concepts, and knowledge based on professional standards, providing the best educational learning services with the guidance and attention of school leadership and management.


Global Citizenship

Our schools ensure that their curricula are based on a set of local and international standards that focus on multicultural education as a contribution to global citizenship. In order to achieve this, all teachers are trained on how to plan to incorporate the concept of global citizenship into curriculum lessons that are suitable for the age group of elementary school students and the nature of the subject they are studying. This includes addressing global issues and celebrating international days such as Children's Day and Arabic Language Day among others as part of classroom and extracurricular activities in schools.

The national curriculum, in addition to international curricula, clearly enhances the concepts of global citizenship, digital citizenship, and multicultural learning. These have become urgent necessities due to global openness and the wealth of information available. Therefore, teachers are regularly trained on how to address and integrate these topics in a balanced manner that aligns with the prescribed curriculum, enabling learners to benefit from them in developing their skills and talents, and acquiring new experiences.

Our schools strive to create numerous links for multicultural learning in our national and international curricula, through which we emphasize teaching English alongside the Arabic language. English is employed in teaching many subjects within the curriculum such as mathematics, science, and computer science. In addition, a diverse group of teachers from various multicultural backgrounds are employed, enriching students' understanding of different cultural norms.


Learning Support

In-school learning support programs:

The learning support programs within Al Bassam schools are diverse and integrated to include a wide range of quality services, with the aim of helping students achieve their maximum academic and personal potential. These programs include the following:

1. In-class support:

Differentiated instruction: Teachers consider the different abilities and potentials of students by offering various activities and tasks that are suitable for different learning styles.

Group support: Teachers provide additional assistance to students with learning difficulties within the classroom, by offering group support sessions aimed at reinforcing or reviewing previously studied information, using various strategies such as small group work, re-teaching using different methods, and using assistive technology.

2. Out-of-class programs:

Academic support programs (individual): Offered to students who need additional assistance in specific subjects, such as mathematics, Arabic language, and English language, where students who have not mastered basic skills are supported individually or in small groups outside of class through tutoring sessions according to approved support plans (individual educational support plan), provided by specialists in the field of learning difficulties.

Guidance and counseling programs: Offer academic and personal support to students, helping them set goals and develop their skills.

Social services programs: Offered to students experiencing social or family problems, such as psychological counseling or family support.

3. Support programs after exams:

We conduct exams at different times during the academic year (diagnostic/formative/summative), and the exams are statistically analyzed by specialized electronic programs. Students who do not pass the minimum required threshold of 70% are identified to undergo remedial support plans (improvement), provided with intensive training, activities, and additional assignments by the teacher or educational supervisor before retaking the exam to ensure the achievement of objectives. Parents are assigned the role of monitoring at home for assignments and additional tasks.
