The International Primary School is divided into two Key Stages (KS). KS1 encompasses Year 1 and Year 2, and KS2 covers Year 3 until Year 6. The curriculum taught is British and children are taught the following subjects from the English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum for 3 to 11 years old:
- PSHE (Physical, Social and Health Education)
We have specialist teachers for:
- Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
- Art and DT (Design & Technology)
- Physical Education (PE)
- Bahasa Melayu
In addition, we also use Read, Write Inc (RWI), a phonics programme for 4 to 7 year olds which is used in over 5,000 schools in the United Kingdom (UK). RWI is a proven successful method of teaching every child to read using a consistent, rigoroud and dynamic approach.
The learning environment is a dynamic, inspiring, internationally minded curriculum that stimulates children's curiosity and creativity to ensure a global dimension to their knowledge and understanding. Learning is further enriched through a range of trips, visiting specialists, exciting projects, workshops and outdoor learning.
Children in Year 6 will sit for the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests which are designed to assess learners at the end of Key Stage 2. The tests are marked in Cambridge and provide schools with an external international benchmark for learner performance.
