Primary school is an exciting part of a child’s educational journey, as they continue with their academic and personal development, in a manner which further reflects the personality, preferences and aptitudes of each child. This level of learning focuses on cultivating a passion for knowledge, with students being encouraged to think creatively and be actively involved in their studies.
Cambridge School of Constanta’s primary school teachers play an important role in guiding students along their own particular educational path, with a personalised approach to learning which allows each student to discover and develop their own special talents and interests, all while learning to share their ideas and reflect on the opinions of others.
Cambridge School of Constanta offers an approach to learning which embraces the academic and personal aspects of a child’s development, as engaging lessons and interactive activities combine with extracurricular activities, field trips and educational events, to ensure that students develop holistically and in a manner which ensures their ability to succeed beyond the classroom.
At Cambridge School of Constanta, the primary school educational programme is tailored to align with both the Romanian and British international academic syllabuses, with all classes being taught in English. The curriculum focuses on key subjects from a required set of subject areas and includes: language and communication; mathematics and natural sciences; man and society; arts; physical education and sport; personal development; and technologies.
The evaluation of students forms a fundamental aspect of the primary school educational programme at Cambridge School of Constanta. Measuring a student’s progress provides vital information regarding their academic and personal performance in the classroom, so as to monitor their development academically, socially and behaviourally. By forming a comprehensive understanding of the performance of each student, teachers are able to create learning plans which meet the specific needs of every student on a personal level, thus ensuring that each child develops successfully.
The internal evaluation process tracks a child’s progress, through observation, practical activities and assessments with formal assessments scheduled at various intervals throughout the school year. Parents receive regular feedback via parents’ meetings and on the Kinderpedia platform, which is updated daily.
In addition to the internal evaluation process, primary school students also participate in national evaluations which take place annually, according to a timetable set by the MEC:
NE 2. Assessment of basic competences at the end of Grade 2.
NE 4. Assessment of basic competences at the end of Grade 4.
Grade 6 students also complete the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Exams, which are written during the October/November Cambridge examination session. The assessments are organised exclusively by Cambridge accredited schools, as the examinations are designed and checked by Cambridge Assessment International Education.
