Primary Programmes

Today, Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah has about 300 students enrolled across its 12-year educational program. Throughout the first 10 years at the Primary and Secondary level, students build a strong foundation in Islamic subjects, learning and memorizing the Qur’an and hadith, as well as other essential subjects that include tafsir, tauhid, fiqh, sirah (Islamic history), and akhlak.


The Diploma in Islamic Studies (DPI) Program that was introduced in 2013 offers our students a chance to further develop their understanding of Islam with subjects like Fiqh Mu’amalat, Usul Fiqh, Tarikh Tasyri’ and many more. With the Diploma in Islamic Studies, our students are well-prepared to continue their education in prestigious Islamic institutions in the Middle East and Malaysia such as the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, Yarmouk University in Jordan, Univesiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS) in Malaysia and others.


In keeping up with the rigorous educational landscape of Singapore, Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah follows the Singapore national curriculum closely. At the end of Primary Six, our students sit for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Our school also offers subjects at the O-Levels and A-Levels at the end of the Secondary and Pre-University levels respectively.


Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah is largely self-funded through the Syed Mohamed Ahmed Alsagoff (SMA) Wakaf, with occasional grants from the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) and contributions from society. Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah is recognized by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) as a heritage school.

EMMS Department (Primary Level)

Subjects Offered

At Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah, we stress on the importance of having a strong command of the Arabic and English Languages. This was the vision of the founder of the school, Syed Mohamed bin Ahmad Alsagoff that we still uphold to this very day. 

 

The Primary level is the first stage of our 12-year dual curriculum programme. Our Primary 1 to Primary 6 curriculum for English Language, Malay Language, Mathematics and Science are in accordance with the latest syllabus set by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. Please refer to the Curriculum Syllabus, MOE documents for the detailed curriculum requirements of each subject. 

 

Although all Alsagoff students will be required to sit for the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) at the end of Primary 6, it is not the final outcome of our students’ six years of Primary education.

The meaning of ARK

ARK means Arabic and Revealed Knowledge. In our department, the objective of learning Arabic Language is for students to deepen the understanding of the revealed knowledge. Apart from that, we hope that students will become effective communicators of the language as well as to be able to integrate the language with the learning of their religion. The Arabic curriculum in our department focuses on the four core language skills such as Reading, Writing, Speaking and listening. Arabic Language subject Ibooks have been progressively developed for the student with added interactive functions to cultivate joy in discovering the beauty of Arabic Language.

 

Revealed knowledge subjects are taught fully in Arabic across the level to expose students to tradition (turath)  of the revealed knowledge which is in Arabic. Our curriculum is designed to educate students about the fundamentals of Revealed Knowledge and to enable them to implement and practice the knowledge in their life. These fundamentals are Tauhid, Quran & Tajwid, Fiqh, Akhlak Islamiyyah, Sirah, Tafsir Quran and Hadith Nabawi. The Department is currently developing the iBooks for Revealed Knowledge Subjects across the level.
