Curriculum at
The British School of Lomé
      

The British School of Lomé uses the following curriculum models as a baseline on which to build our personalised BSL curriculum.
Early years

In Early Years our curriculum is based on the UK Foundation Stage guidelines, providing a framework for learning for our youngest students, aged from 18 months to 5 years old. These guidelines identify the areas of a typical child's learning and development and describe the learning goals that form the basis for all future learning and achievement. The teachers create themes and topics that allow their students to develop skills and competencies through the medium of interactive play and guided learning. Assessment is ongoing and based on teacher observations.
