At GISU, the Primary level offers a flexible curriculum with Cambrigde Integrated assessment for children aged 5 to 11. Our teaching focuses on learners’ development in each year and provides a natural progression throughout the 6 years of primary education. It prepares the students for the Secondary 1 Cambridge international education for the learners aged 11-14 (Years 7, 8 and 9).
The Primary Cambridge International Curriculum developes skills and understanding in Mathematics, English, Science and ICT. Children are taught in small class sizes of up to a maximum of 24. This teacher-student ratio enables the teacher to embrace the child-centred approach in teaching. The Science lessons are taught with adequate experiments in the Science Laboratories, with the aid of smart boards.
In Key Stage 1, we strongly emphasise the development of children’s skills and understanding in Reading, Writing, Numeracy and ICT literacy. Students receive support everyday in small groups based on phonetic ability.
Besides the above four key skills, the children learn French, Music, Social studies and P.E. from a team of highly skilled, experienced and enthusiastic specialist teachers.
The children also go for various Educational Tours to enhance their learning.
GISU has been given a greater global perspective in developing a sense of meaning and relevance to the children, and celebrates the cultural and international diversity of the school community.
The Primary children participate in community services in and around Entebbe, Kampala and other parts of Uganda. The children are encouraged to accept responsibility for serving their local, national and international communities.
