The Primary School Curriculum was developed based on the National Curriculum of Indonesia and the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. It aims to provide a broad learning experience and encourages a rich variety of approaches to teaching and learning that cater for the different needs of individual children. The primary curriculum is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of his or her life-spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.
The curriculum aims to:
Develop each child’s potential to the full
Encourage a love of learning
Help children develop skills they will use all their lives.
The curriculum is presented in 11 subject areas in Lower Primary and 14 in Upper Primary.
Medium of instruction
The medium of language used by teachers to teach students at JPS is English in most of the subjects. Teaching educational content, through English language increases the amount of exposure the learner gets to it, and the opportunities they have to communicate in it, and therefore to develop their control of it as a passport to global academic and business communities.
Assessment in primary school is about building a picture over time of a child’s learning progress across the curriculum. The teacher uses different ways to gather evidence about how and what the child learns on an ongoing basis. This information is used to celebrate the child’s current learning, and to help make decisions about next steps for future learning.
