SPP prioritises giving children a quality and inclusive education with classes based on both their age and their abilities. Most of their mothers have had little education and are often illiterate so the children and their mothers both need support. SPP runs classes from SBK, and Pre-school up to Class 3. We also support children in local village schools for higher classes/education.The school runs on a ‘block’ teaching system so that a teacher gets to know their pupils and can monitor their progress. Each teacher carries out continuous and regular assessments of all the children in their class.To ensure a rounded education there are many co-curricular activities run by specialists. These include games and sports (including cricket for girls), music, art, dance and basic Arabic.
As many children are from abusive environments behavioural problems can hamper learning.There are many initiatives to give positive reinforcement to good behaviour. In particular children are awarded with tokens for specific required behaviours and they can spend these in the ‘Token Economy’ shop. We also have a rigorous child protection policy which all adults on site must understand and sign. There are many levels of reading and writing classes to supplement the general education system.
