Primary School

Welcome to our Primary School. Early Years Centre students seamlessly progress to Primary School where they continue to grow and develop into lifelong learners and embark on the quest to become global citizens. Through engaging, fun and meaningful learning, we nurture each child to fulfill their potential. The unique primary curriculum integrates the Cambridge International Curriculum, Singapore National Curriculum (Mathematics and Science) and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to provide thematic-based learning to young learners aged 5 to 11 years old.

IPC is based on the National Curriculum of England (UK) and is child-centered, combined with rigorous assessments to monitor and evaluate each child’s progress. It is used by over 730 schools in 92 countries worldwide. It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject. It also develops international mindedness and encourages personal learning.

Learning Assessment

Parents Actively Involved

With a clear focus to establish a conducive, safe and joyful learning environment, SIS is committed to making sure all children enjoy their schooling, inculcate values, foster curiosity and encourage questioning.
