CIE – International Primary Programme
The Cambridge International Primary Programme provides a curriculum framework to develop Mathematics, English and Science skills & knowledge in young children. The Cambridge Primary curriculum framework identifies a comprehensive set of learning objectives for English, Mathematics and Science for each year of primary education, which:
- provide a natural progression through the years of primary education
- provide a valuable structure that focuses on what children should be able to do at each of the primary stages.
Cambridge Primary provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning. It enables teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress with two optional assessments: Cambridge Primary progression tests and Cambridge Primary Achievement Tests.
Primary Programme Progression Tests are used that can assess students at the end of each year.
These tests provide information to analyse student’s achievements, strengths and weaknesses, and give teachers invaluable information to help guide your child in the following year. In the final year of primary education, students can take the Cambridge International Primary Achievement Test. All students completing the tests will be issued with a Primary Certificate of Achievement by University of Cambridge International Examinations.
Appropriate & 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 every country. The Primary Programme is an excellent framework for learning in the primary years and provides a solid foundation for your child’s future. Its step-by-step programme of learning takes children from the start of primary education to completion, before they move on to secondary education.
