Curriculum

elementary   middle   high
         

SES follows the UK National Curriculum in unison with both the Cambridge Primary and the Cambridge Lower Secondary 1. This provides the best of both worlds as it incorporates the solid base of the UK National curriculum together with the testing and diagnostic components of the Cambridge Programme.

http://www.cie.org.uk/qualifications/academic/primary/cambridgeprimary
http://www.cie.org.uk/qualifications/academic/lowersec/cambridgesecondary1

The English National Curriculum is divided into  Key Stages. Key Stage One (5 to 7 year olds) and Key Stage Two (7 to 11 year olds). Key Stage Three and Four cater for the students of Secondary School age. 

The core Primary subjects are: English, Mathematics and Science, plus Information Communication Technology (I.C.T.), Religious Education, History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education and Design Technology make up the sector known as Foundation subjects. In all areas of the Curriculum we emphasise effort, personal achievement and co-operation.  Mandarin is also part of the Primary curriculum at SES and students have two Mandarin lessons per week delivered by a qualified teacher who is a native Mandarin speaker.

Students in Secondary School are instructed in Mathematics, Science, English and Mandarin at least four times per week.  The other subjects of history, ICT, geography, art and design and drama are given full coverage and where possible these are taught under a "grouping concept" to allow students to develop cross curricular disciplines.

Our Secondary School curriculum is designed so that our students, in the relevant year group, may undertake the International General Certificate of Secondary Education certificate examinations which are administered by Cambridge.  For further information please click on the blue link above.

With careful selection of the IGCSE subjects undertaken students attain an excellent basis for undertaking the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.  The two year IB Diploma is the most widely accepted University entrance qualification allowing students, dependant on their IB Diploma results, to choose from the courses offered by Universities world wide.

We regularly re-assess and modify our schemes of work to take into account educational developments, and relevance to our Asian setting, always bearing in mind that our aim is to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.

The pastoral curriculum at SES is highly significant and the students are encouraged to undertake domestic tasks as well as support each other in academic, sport and leisure time activities through our school house system.

  Literacy Framework
 

The language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing are crucial, and are at the heart of the literacy framework.

The children are taught using a range of world literature. From the earliest stages our children derive great pleasure from sharing books and listening to stories. We provide a lively reading environment and the children are enthused and guided by structured and sensitive teaching. The children's individual needs and interests are catered for, and all children borrow books from the school library.

Children are taught to write for a variety of purposes, both fictional and non fictional, such as creating imaginative and descriptive writing, reports and persuasive points of view. Spelling, grammar and handwriting skills are systematically developed throughout the whole school.

 
Mathematics Framework
 

The English Framework for Mathematics forms the guidelines for the teaching of mathematics, with an emphasis on mathematical strategies that help develop the 'landscape of number'. This includes mental maths strategies and the inter-relationship between concepts that allows a child a variety of innovative approaches to solve original problems. The children gain the mathematics of number, algebra, measurement, shape and space/geometry.

Children are encouraged and supported in investigating mathematics in context.  A wide range of teaching approaches are undertaken including games and use of manipulates to ensure that learners of all types may gain access to the curriculum. 

Not only are the mechanics of mathematics instructed, but also use an application of mathematics in real-life settings.  This enables children to relate mathematics to every day issues and to use mathematics in context.  A skill which assists them for the entirity of their lives.

Science is a core subject within the Curriculum. Children acquire skills, knowledge and understanding through investigation and observation. The key elements of science; being hypothesis, procedure and conclusion are developed through a hands-on approach. 

Students are encouraged to use their scientific knowledge to predict an outcome to a scientific question before undertaking investigation.

Throughout Science, Mathematics features heavily and Science and Mathematics are used to support each other in the curriculu.

Information, Communication Technology (I.C.T) is a vital subject, not only as a lesson on modern communication systems and how the internet and computer networks systems work, but also as an integrated part of schoool life. Here word processing, graphics, presentational and data handling packages are used across the curriculum as tools to aid a child's learning.

These basic skills are augmented by the use of control and monitoring technology, again bringing enhancement to the Science and Mathematics curricula.


secondary   primary   elementary

All other foundation subjects; Geography, History, Physical Education, Music, Religious Education, Art and Design Technology are widely resourced, and are taught taking advantage of our unique Asian environment.

Standards for the English National Curriculum are overviewed by the Qualification Curriculum Authority (QCA), and may be viewed at http://www.standards.dfes.gov.uk/.

After school activities, such as swimming, football, raquet sports, Mandarin, drama, art and our student newspaper 'The Surabaya Snooper', provide the children with a variety of new skills and experiences. Every activity is run by teachers of the school and members of our school community.

Lunch - the whole school together

Every lunch time the pupils of SES can be found enjoying lunch together. The children set up the tables, serve each other and also take care of the washing-up. Lunch time is for enjoying a well balanced hot lunch and brushing up on social skills by sharing stories and practising table manners. SES is the only school in Surabaya that provides free lunches for the children.
