At Maseru Preparatory School we follow Cambridge Primary which sets clear learning objectives in English as a first or second language, mathematics, science, ICT and Cambridge Global Perspectives. Our curriculum focuses on the development of knowledge and skills in core subjects right from grade R to Stage Six. This forms an excellent foundation for future study.
The implementation of our curriculum is planned to ensure progression, connection and development. Topics and learning opportunities are adapted to suit the interests and needs of the children, ensuring that the learning is child-directed. Scientific research suggests that superior learning takes place when classroom experiences are enjoyable and relevant. At Maseru Preparatory School, we seek innovative ways to ensure learning is memorable. Our curriculum seeks to create opportunities for all children to develop and apply their skills, knowledge and learning characteristics.
Our definition of learning extends far beyond the academic achievements in reading, writing and maths. Many of our children face challenges and experiences, both before attending and whilst attending our school. These can impact on their social and emotional well-being, as well as their health. As a result, our curriculum takes their personal development and welfare into account and offers the flexibility necessary to ensure every child can flourish at, and beyond, Maseru Preparatory School.
Maseru Preparatory School uses the Cambridge Primary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Cambridge Primary uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
We use two testing options: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. Cambridge Primary assessments, including Cambridge Primary Checkpoint, provide teachers with an international benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure learners’ progress over time. They also enable detailed, structured reporting to parents
