Primary School Organisation

The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, the English National Curriculum and The Cambridge International Curriculum provide the framework for the skills and content we teach at SIS, Rawang. Their content is adapted to ensure SIS is culturally inclusive and serves to meet the needs of all our children while being mindful of the international environment in which we live. The school is divided into 6 developmental stages. Primary school includes children in our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as well as Key Stages 1 and 2.

The Early Years Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage establishes patterns and attitudes for the whole of your child’s school life. It is vital that your child has a positive and fulfilling experience to prepare them for their future learning and successes. At SIS it is important to us that each child’s early years’ experience should be positive, active and secure in order to properly support their personal growth and learning needs.

The EYFS framework sets out welfare and developmental goals for children from birth to five years old. It is a comprehensive programme which includes:
● The requirements recommended to keep your child safe and promote their welfare.
● The 7 areas of learning and development which guide professionals’ engagement with your child’s play and activities as they learn new
skills and knowledge.
● Assessments that will tell you about your child’s progress through the EYFS.
● Expected levels that your child should reach at age 5; these expectations are called the ‘Early Learning Goals (ELGs).
