What are the benefits of Cambridge Primary?
Foundation for secondary education. Cambridge Primary aids identification of a learners’ strengths and weaknesses and can be used to support learning and development. Cambridge Primary enables learners to progress seamlessly into middle years curricula, such as Cambridge Secondary 1.
External benchmark. Cambridge Primary provides teachers with an optional external benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure learners’ progress over time. It also allows detailed, structured reporting to parents.
International curriculum. Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Primary has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools. The structure of Cambridge Primary encourages teachers to use their own materials, bringing in local, national and international examples.
Flexibility. Cambridge Primary complements a range of teaching methods and curricula. No part of the programme is compulsory and schools may choose the parts that best suit their situation.
Information and Communication Technology
Our classes are all equipped with SMARTBoards, which enables the teacher to use interactive teaching methods to engage with the students. The SMARTBoard technology follows the “Tell me, I forget; Show me, I remember; Involve me, I understand” philosophy.
