The Cambridge Primary gives schools a framework to develop English, Mathematics, Science skills, knowledge and understanding in young children.
Cambridge Primary aids in the identification of a student’s strengths and weaknesses and can be used to support learning and development. Cambridge Primary progresses students seamlessly into middle years curricula, such as Cambridge Secondary 1 and IGCSE.
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 Checkpoint.
Students are assessed in each stage (Stage I to V) by the Cambridge Progression Tests and at the end of stage VI by the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. The test is available in three core subjects: English, Mathematics and Science. Cambridge Primary Checkpoint will be taken by the students in November. This is an external examination assessed by the Cambridge International Examinations Board. All students will be awarded a Cambridge Certificate of Achievement at the end of primary schooling.
