Future Stars High School follows the National Curriculum from classes I to X given by the government. The government holds the belief that the purpose of the School is to educate all its pupils to the maximum of their potential. Thus, the School offers a curriculum, which is right for every child and sets high standards.
The development of good literacy skills, including reading, writing, speaking and listening, is imperative for all learning. We foster a positive attitude to literacy through a daily lesson. This lesson is structured and based around the developmental needs of each child. It includes some element of shared reading or writing, sentence work, independent work and a form of feedback plenary. Guided Reading sessions allow pupils to learn and practice their skills within a small group with the teacher. Individual targets for reading and writing are also discussed at this time. Children develop the habit of reading books as they have books issued from the library in weekly basis.
Science teaching is based on the programs of study in the National Curriculum. Key skills have been identified for each year group and teachers use these skills to teach the various scientific topics. The emphasis throughout the school is on developing scientific enquiry and a curiosity about the world in which we all live. It is important that children understand the process of experimentation.
More and more, Information Communication Technology (ICT) is impacting on our work and private life. It is vital that pupils have the opportunity to learn about and use modern technology so that they are prepared for life. A computer lab is used by students and this provides an environment where the specific ICT skills can be taught. Interactive whiteboards and data projectors with access to the internet are also available in our school making ICT possible in all subjects. The school follows a scheme of work that ensures pupils receive clear and structured learning that builds on their previous experiences.
The pupils also learn about their past and their place in the wider world. The school follows a skills-led curriculum around topics identified in the National Curriculum. Whenever possible, children undertake some fieldwork to help them find out about the history and geography topics.
Thus, the curriculum of our school prepares the children for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
The School welcomes both formal and informal contacts. Parent consultation evenings are held on Fridays and also your child’s progress can be confidentially discussed.
Teachers are normally available to talk to parents on any day by prior appointments. A written report is sent to the parents when the teachers want to meet personally any time. At the end of every term the school sends the report to the parents. A midyear report is also given to the parents.
Children conform to high standards of behavior. We expect them to be able to recognize good relationships amongst the adults, juniors and everyone around them and, from this example, to develop attitudes of tolerance, honesty and understanding. There are general rules for the safety and well-being of the school community and children are made aware of these. They are brought to the attention of the pupils by the Principal, or the teachers as and when necessary. Opportunity is given to inform parents of school rules, when their child is admitted and thereafter from time to time at parent meetings.
Problems of a trivial nature are dealt with by staff as the occasion arises but more serious disciplinary problems are brought to the attention of the Principal and, where necessary, parents are contacted.

IMPORTANT NOTES TO GUARDIANS
Special attention is given the students to ensure a high standard of morality, discipline and whole some development.
We, take the issue of bullying very seriously at Future Stars High School. Bullying is defined as when a child is deliberately being made unhappy over a sustained period of time. Such actions include name calling, threatening, teasing, taunting, being left out, made to feel different, physically hurt, subjected to extortion or when possessions are taken.
School Strategies to stop Bullying include:
- Use praise and a positive reward system in class and on the playground
- Remind children that it is unacceptable to (list from above)
- Keep records of bullying incidents if any in the school
- Use of assembly for reminding the students
- Proactive class and playground supervision during games and lunch
If these strategies fail to make the expected difference, the Principal will contact the parents of the children involved to discuss and implement further action.
Medicine in School
It is generally accepted that children who are required to take medicine would normally be absent from school. There are occasions, however, when the child is able to return to school, if medicine is given at lunchtime. All medicines must be given to the Class Teacher for administration – NOT left in bags. School must be kept informed if your child is affected.
Accident and Illness
In any school, accidents – usually of a minor nature – do occur from time to time and sometimes a child is unwell during the day. So, to face up the unexpected accidents in the school the school has an up-to-date telephone number, where a parent is contacted in any emergency situation. Prompt action is always taken and the parent is informed as soon as possible.
If a child is absent – for any reason – parents are asked to notify the school on the first morning of absence by telephone, if possible, or to give the child a note of explanation on his/her return. Each term, the attendance figures are collated and parents whose child attends for less that 80% will receive a letter from the Principal.
