Welcome from the Principal

On behalf of the staff and children I want to welcome you and your family to Al Yasmina Academy.

Al Yasmina is an exciting, challenging and enjoyable place for all, where the staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating environment, where everyone feels valued and safe, ideas can flourish and students can realise their full potential. A love of learning, enquiry, independence, creativity, motivation and resilience are key factors in our learning culture.

This happens in different ways for different individuals and is enhanced by the provision of a wide range of opportunities both within and outside of the ‘statutory’ curriculum. We recognise that learning is a never ending process and take advantage of every opportunity to enrich the curriculum through real life experiences, educational visits, themed activities and visitors. We want our students' time in our school to be memorable, to build on what they know and can do and help them become lifelong learners.

We appreciate the importance of achieving high standards and support that process. It is important to us that we provide academic rigour within a supportive and inviting environment in which students enjoy attending and feel safe. We aim to equip our students to become global citizens of the future, able to make a positive contribution to society.

We value highly the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The school cannot work in isolation. The partnership between school staff, parents and other stakeholders is an essential one. Together we can set challenges and our partners can join us when we ask how can we do it even better.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.
