Education is a shared venture, and we wish to establish a close partnership with parents. Academic progress is monitored by the regular awarding of grades for academic effort and achievement. Teachers will review these with pupils, offering encouragement and, where necessary, strategies for improvement. Full reports are sent to parents at regular intervals as a formal record of their child’s progress. For convenience, grades and reports are also available to view on the electronic Parent Portal. In addition, each year-group has an annual parents’ consultation meeting at which all the teaching staff are present to discuss academic matters.
The School organizes a series of pastoral presentations and discussions each year, covering such areas as internet safety, emotional intelligence and dealing with exam stress.
“It has been a memorable experience for me. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the school. We parents want to be part of the school life of our kids and feel that when the school and parents complement each other it helps to develop a whole child. As parents we always appreciate a two – way communication between the school and us so that our children are confident human beings ready to make a mark wherever they go!! Thank you.”

Staring with a confused mind few years back and today I stand convinced and committed for my decision to enroll my child in the institution that has grown with a difference.
The concept of practical and easy learning, classwork and no homework model and equal opportunity to all students have made my child present herself with lot of confidence today. The concept given and taught in the school are taken home with lot of enthusiasm and give an overall knowledge of the topics. I am happy that I don’t need to run after numerous tuitions and teachers to makeup to the school. I am happy to see my child grow into an understanding and compassionate individual, free to do, express and learn anything.
My child has grown and reached to a level wherein she would be very much prepared to face the challenges and competitions of the world.

“A school is first of all a place where each day of a student begins with the teacher who is full of passion and liveliness. The teacher not only grabs the students’ attention but keeps them on the edge of their seats wanting to know more. His or her enthusiasm ignites that spark of excitement that opens receiving minds to wider fields of knowledge. Such a teacher asks more questions from the students, explores with the students and is a friend to them. UKEF School has always been known for its single – minded devotion to learning. The school has a competent, cooperative, yet a caring team of teachers who are open-minded, tolerant and patient. I can say it for a fact that they are able to handle any situation they encounter with confidence. They are perfect role models. The staffs consist of teachers who are eminent in their own field. Their teaching fires the pupils with enthusiasm for their subjects.
UKEF is a school where teaching methods vary from the use of contemporary technologies to out-of class experiences. Those experiences are important because they do not confine students to the four walls of a classroom.
They support integrated learning of subjects both in the Arts and Sciences so that the education received is not about confining but expanding. Given choices, students get a sense of freedom, can express opinions and will be more sociable. All these make them better persons in society, possessing a wide range of skills.
The school is complete with amazing facilities like audio visual classrooms, well equipped labs, sports grounds, amphitheater, multipurpose hall for presentations and conferences and a huge courtyard for the students to just hang around during the breaks. The school is situated in the quiet surroundings of natural beauty so that the students are able to find peace and quiet and derive inspiration from their surroundings. It has a powerful and incomparable infrastructure and the School has an extensive library where every possible reference book is available. There are fixed working hours for students to read in this library. This enables students to be more familiar with their subjects and themselves. Studying in a hands-on environment allows students to use their five senses to gain knowledge. It moulds them to be excited about their abilities and excel with them. Also at hand is the school catering making fresh and healthy food available to the students within the school premises. A balanced diet is vital for students who spend many hours in school. Clean, non-processed, nutritious food is a key feeding requirement for students.
Crossover faculty programs in the school creates understanding and respect. They satisfy curiosities and instill intercultural awareness. Sports are given equal emphasis with academics. After all, education is not only for the mind but for the whole self – mentally and physically. Sporting activities instill a healthy lifestyle by encouraging students to be physically fit, emotionally strong, and have good self-esteem. They build team spirit, and at the same time encourage individuality. Through sports, people from different backgrounds meet and learn to respect each other.
Academic subjects in the school are relevant. The syllabus includes significant impact fields like environmental studies, political views, and economic struggles. It grabs the attention of students and leads them to action. Not everyone dreams of becoming a scientist, doctor or a lawyer when they grow up. For this reason, they properly divide the curriculum between the theoretical and practical aspects of learning, as well as a good portion of the curriculum time going towards physical education and or the arts. I think there should be a good balance between being a good student and being able to enjoy your school life. What’s amazing is, if young people understood how doing well in school makes the rest of their life so much interesting, they would be more motivated. My children are self-motivated, all thanks to the school they go to.
As a parent I can confidently say that UKEF is the best thing that ever happened to my children.”
