Welcome to the Primary Section

At VISP Primary we aim to make learning fun. By providing the highest quality care and education for all our pupils we know we are giving our children the strongest foundations for their future learning. We follow the British National Curriculum which we adapt to our community needs whilst also ensuring that our students are prepared for an international life.

Each child is provided with a ClassDojo log in to enable parents to communicate easily with the class teacher and keep up to date with what is going on in the classroom through the Class Story Feature. For more information on how to sign up with ClassDojo speak to your class teacher or Mrs Rafferty, or follow the link here

Core Values and Celebrating Success
At Vijay International School we believe in nurturing the ‘whole child’ and aim to develop self-motivated children who love to learn and are not afraid to take risks or make mistakes. Our ‘Weekly Values’ are designed to help raise awareness of and develop the skills children need to become effective learners as well as becoming thoughtful, respectful and confident individuals. New values are introduced in our Monday morning assemblies and one child is selected from each class to receive our ‘Value Superhero Award’ in our Achievement Assemblies on Friday afternoons. ‘Star of the Week’ awards are also given to the children who have set an excellent example or have achieved something special. Children also receive House Points as rewards for excellent work or behaviour.
