The Curriculum PDO School sets out to provide a suitable education to enable children to reach and maintain the highest standard possible. The intention is that children will fit in well to any educational setting when they transfer. Shell affiliated schools work according to the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Language and mathematics are taught using the National Curriculum for England or a similar curriculum. ISA tests are used to monitor achievement in these subjects. For further information about the IPC please visit www.greatlearning.com/ipc The pupil-teacher ratio is lower than average so that children whose first language is different from the language of instruction and those with specific educational needs, can receive extra help. The low ratio also takes into account the fact that children may enter and leave the school during the academic year and may miss periods of schooling when parents have, for operational reasons, to take holidays in term time. Few children in Shell Schools spend more than four years in the same location. The terms, holidays and hours of work at PDO School are similar to those in the UK. Everyone is expected to contribute fully to the life of the school and the wider expatriate community, and there are many opportunities to do so. Most parents are supportive and very interested and involved in their children’s education. Consultation evenings and curriculum events form part of the normal school activities, as do staff meetings and other school based activities. PDO School offers a competitive salary and benefits. More details about the package will be given at the interview. Social life in locations such as Muscat is usually varied and rewarding, although certain activities are subject to local restrictions concerning alcohol and dress. Many people enjoy the good sporting facilities that are offered and take part in community events.
