CAIE Framework Highlights

Cambridge qualifications are one of the most widely accepted and recognised qualifications by universities and employers worldwide.

Overview of the Cambridge Curriculum

The CAIE framework motivates children to become curious learners, respectful citizens and tolerant humans. At SIIS, we don’t prepare students just for exams, but for life beyond exams by letting them learn and evolve at their preferred pace. Thus, we are constantly brainstorming, collaborating and exchanging ideas to evaluate and update the teaching-learning strategies as recommended by the Cambridge curriculum.
Our teaching-learning methodologies ensure that our young learners develop a zest for life and everything it has to offer. We strive to make our children:

Benefits of Cambridge
Curriculum

The activity and application-based learning methodology followed by the Cambridge curriculum positively impacts the children in more ways than one.
International Dimension in School (IDS) - British Council
The British Council offers the International Dimension in School (ISD) as an accreditation framework for schools to record and evaluate their international work. To introduce a global level learning experience for our students, SIIS is registered with the British Council International Dimension in School Award. The amalgamation of global and cultural values which we have embedded into the curriculum and our guiding ethos has opened a plethora of learning experiences for our students.
This intercultural learning experience offers vibrant opportunities for students to interact with fellow students across the globe. In one such event, our students of Grade III got an opportunity to collaborate with students at a partner school from South Korea - Yeoul Elementary School. In the event named ‘Coming Together Through Festivities', students participated by celebrating their local festivals, wearing their traditional dresses, preparing greeting cards and sharing the pictures with their partner school.

Language and Literacy Development Program (ESDP)

At SIIS, we ensure that our pupils develop strong language skills that make them excellent communicators. We work towards building their language proficiency through different programs and modules that focus on all areas of LSRW (Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing).
We conduct special classes and activities to improve conversation skills and master interpersonal abilities. These activities are targeted towards polishing our students’ grammar, vocabulary and comprehension skills, thus making them more expressive with their thoughts and ideas. They are encouraged to speak on given topics through JAM Sessions, Ted Talks and debates. In primary grades, Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R) Sessions, Special classes, and Spellaton are conducted to develop children’s literacy skills and self-confidence.
