A warm welcome to our wonderful Primary Section at NBIS!
Our Primary Section is a unique and special community which puts learning at the heart ofeverything we do. We utilise the Cambridge Primary Curriculum to guide our teaching and learning, and make every effort to ensure we meet every student’s learning needs. The Cambridge Curriculum facilitates a seamless transition from Early Years and on to Secondary.
Teachers assess each student’s learning continually and provide feedback to help students be the best they can be. Cambridge Progression and Checkpoint Tests are also used to provide valuable information about a student’s learning.
Primary students benefit from specialist teachers in Art, Music, Physical Education and Drama. ICT skills are developed using pods of iPads in our classrooms. Reading and Mathematics are also supported by each student having access to online programmes for home and school use.
Teachers are committed to developing strong learning relationships with their students and this is supported by having two teachers in each classroom, one native English speaker and one Chinese trained teacher. They work side by side, and this partnership offers the chance to work effectively with students of all abilities. Our whole school Inclusion Team also assists in this regard.
Our Primary Section offers a range of electives and after school activities over the year, giving our students the opportunity to pursue their personal interests and talents or simply, to try something new.
