Curriculum

The curriculum at Diligent Kids Academy is rich and integrated.

We run Nigeria/ British curriculum from Basic one (1) to six (6), while we adopt the British system of education from Pre-nursery to Nursery two (2) and Basic one (1) to six (6).

The curriculum of the Junior Secondary School (JSS) is both prevocational and academic. It includes all of the basic subjects which enable students to acquire knowledge and skills on which they can build. In line with the Federal Ministry of Education’s directive.

Curriculum

The curriculum has a special emphasis on literacy and communication skills in both the general and Islamic education.

After school professional development sessions to tackle particular professional training are being carried out.

Director of Learning conducts class visits and advises according to specific observations and ensures adherence to curriculum objectives, school values and policies.

Most of the students display positive and serious attitude towards learning. The academic performance of the students is generally above average.

Teachers are willing to undergo training for hands-on learning.

The school has adequate learning materials that encourage students’ participation and assimilation.

There is much emphasis on formative assessment rather than summative assessment to ensure students’ progress.
