The authorisation to open Tabuk Primary School was given by the Chief Executive in October 1999. Accordingly, the first Tabuk Primary School opened in January 2000 for the children of BAE Systems employees, taking children from aged 4+ to 11 years
The school was situated on a secure site on the Najrani Compound, housed in a large converted farmhouse and surrounded by fields and orchards. On Saturday 2nd June 2001, the school moved to a new purpose-built building on the new compound of TGV 2. The new school consists of 7 classrooms, a Library, an Assembly Hall, a Music Room, a Science / D.T. Room, and an I.C.T. Room equipped with 20 computers. Each classroom also has its own computers, Interactive smart tv’s and Ipads.
Tabuk Primary School is a non-selective, co-educational day school catering for the children of BAE Systems employees. Any child whose parents are employed by BAE Systems either directly or indirectly is allowed to attend the school, but the child must be five years old during its first year at school before it can attend. The academic year is defined as running from 1st September to 31st August inclusively.
The school is one form entry and caters for children from Reception to Year 6. Numbers vary from year to year. Our aim is to have classes of single age groups. At all times, the class sizes are small, never going above 20.
The school follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Children follow this Curriculum through 3 Stages. The Foundation Stage (Reception; 4 - 5 years old), Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2; 6 – 7 years old) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6; 8 – 11 years old).
