    Cambridge Pathway School

    Cambridge Primary starts learners on an exciting educational journey. Typically for 5 to 11-year-olds, it develops young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative, and engaged and includes an assessment that proves and improves learning. Students in this programme follow Stages 1 to 6 of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum, which continues to build on the foundations that are established in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Ongoing reviews ensure that each student’s progress and development are continuous and meet predetermined standards.

    We encourage students to think independently, use their initiative, and participate in a meaningful and active manner in the learning process. At the end of Grade 5 (Stage 6), students will prepare for the University of Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Examinations in English, Mathematics, and Science. The tests are marked in Cambridge to provide an international benchmark of learner performance. Learners receive a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report. Feedback reports show how a learner has performed in relation to the curriculum, their learning group, the whole school, and against all learners who have taken tests in that series around the world.

    The core academic curriculum includes instruction in English, Mathematics, Science, Global Perspective (Social Studies & EVM) and Digital Learning. Kannada is taught to all students and caters for native and non-native speakers. In addition, the school offers French and Hindi. The overall educational experience is enhanced and supplemented with an enriched visual and performing arts programme that embraces both western and local culture as well as an excellent school sports provision.

    The Finnish Education Model

    Freedom to choose, express, explore and learn. These are the wings of the learning flight in PNCCS. Our pedagogy adaption to the world’s best education system is to prepare today’s learners for Gen-Z. As a resource school, it is our endeavour in providing an enriching learning environment for our Cognitions to learn.
    The Finnish Adaptation in our school is characterized by the understanding that a student who is happy in the classroom and is comfortable since he/she is free to learn at his own pace, will learn the knowledge that is needed. Finnish teachers have genuine pedagogical freedom, as well as autonomy to teach. Therefore, they are motivated in their day to day activities. Teachers spend approximately 400 + hours of training during a year. This includes a wide range of skills such as Subject Matter Expertise, Classroom Management, Equipping Students with 21st Century Skills, and many more.
    The Facilitators have at their disposal a range of ready-to-use materials in their classrooms. The learning labs and Research Points empower the teacher to promote experiential and active learning.
    Thus a plant rooted in good soil and environment bears fruits that sustains itself and the community. And so is every Cognition.
    Progressing in this pathway, two initiatives that shape our children’s mind is “Speakathon” and “Thoughtcast”. These learning platforms help the learners to reflect on various topics which impact them, the environment, and the community at large. Learners express, debate, and pen down their thoughts. Thus transforming them into confident individuals who can voice their opinions, accept or reflect on critical reviews and collaborate to find solutions.
    The pedagogy promotes mastery of learning through thinking routines. It is a synonym for the layers of soil. Each is different in texture and composition but all are important.
