The Tanto International School follows the core learning goals set out in the English National Curriculum. The school uses this curriculum due to the fact that it focuses on progress and development through subject specific goals whilst linking the core skills of English and Mathematics at key points in a child's day. Certain parts of the curriculum have been adapted to more suit our international students. It is the careful and delicate balance between all essential aspects of learning and personal development that makes The Tanto International School unique. The balance between academic challenge and excellence, respect and democracy as well as equal value for all is something all educators at the school are proud of.
The curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge, skills and interests that all young people need in order to be well-educated and positive citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; helping foster an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. The curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to go beyond the curriculum specifications. The curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
The Education Act (2010:800) stipulates that education in the school should aim for children to acquire and develop knowledge and values. It should promote all children’s development and learning, and a lifelong desire to learn. An important task of the school is to impart and establish respect for human rights and the fundamental democratic values on which society is based. The Tanto International School has developed a culture that supports and enhances these fundamental aims through its well established ethos and motto of The Tanto 3 C’s: Care, Co-operation and Courtesy.
The curriculum leaves space for the school children to develop awareness and empathy for others by offering social and moral learning, such as: Student Council, UNICEF and developing a global awareness through current affairs. These are fundamental to the learning of the ‘whole’ child and support the academic progress children make in their daily lessons. Extra-curricular activities are based around topics the children are learning in classes: museums, galleries and workshops offer a great place to find inspiration. Whole school house days allow opportunities to find unity amongst different and diverse groups. School trips: downhill skiing, trips to London and cross-country skiing all add to the fun and experience of attending The Tanto International School. Our whole school production, at a local theatre in central Stockholm, allows us to develop some more creativity and nurture talents each year in dance, drama and singing. Extra curricular dance and violin clubs, run by professionals, are held at the school in the evenings to offer more opportunities in for those who wish to pursue an extra passion in the arts. These activities generally incur an additional charge.The school teachers also run clubs, free of charge, that enable our children to explore many new skills. We currently offer the following clubs:
Football, Props Making, Tag Rugby, Chess, Art Club, Athletics, Swedish Reading Club and Cricket.
Another wonderful addition to our school life is the weekly tuition that all children receive in learning the Ukulele. This forms an important part of our music curriculum. We believe all children should have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument in school.
