Feedback

https://www.cis.edu.sg/feedback

Feedback Feedback and dispute resolution The Canadian International School (CIS) adopts a closed loop feedback and complaint management system to gather and address all feedback and/or complaints received from stakeholders (Students, parents and external parties) for continuous improvement. In this definition, external parties refers to parents, the public, suppliers and partners. Learn more about our feedback and dispute resolution policy and procedures here. CIS aims to provide a high standard and quality of service in respect of its programmes of study, services and facilities. As part of its commitment to enhancing Student / parent / external parties’ experiences, this policy has been established to deal with feedback, complaints and disputes. CIS will respond/acknowledge all feedback and complaints within two (2) working days and will target to resolve the issue within twenty one (21) working days. Purpose The purpose of this information is to: Define feedback, and complaint procedures (including disputes) Illustrate the feedback and complaint process Outline the dispute resolution procedures and process for referring a case to the Committee for Private Education (CPE) Mediation-Arbitration Scheme, via the Student Services Centre (SSC) Definitions Feedback is information provided by Students or external parties that is intended to be used as a basis for improvement Complaints are feedback expressing dissatisfaction of a serious nature which affects a Student’s learning experience and can lead to attrition, if not attended to and resolved in a timely and satisfactory manner Disputes are disagreements that remain unresolved notwithstanding all attempts to achieve resolution of a Student or external parties’ complaints For feedback and complaints, we have implemented a formal Feedback and Dispute Resolution Procedure. Official feedback and complaints can be submitted to feedback@cis.edu.sg or via the online feedback form. Procedure to lodge feedback CIS recognises that complaints may provide useful feedback which, where appropriate, will be used to improve its services and facilities. Students / parents who have feedback or a complaint should raise the issue as soon as possible. Feedback and complaints can be provided via the following methods; By completing and submitting the Customer Feedback Form via suggestion box (in the main office on campus) Via email to feedback@cis.edu.sg Via the online feedback form on the School website (Feedback and Dispute Resolution) All feedback and complaints will be dealt with in confidence. Where a complaint is shown to be frivolous, vexatious or motivated by malice, it will be dismissed and disciplinary action may be taken against the Student. All feedback/complaints will be dealt with in confidence. Acknowledgement and response The School will provide a written or verbal acknowledgement within two (2) working days of receipt of the feedback/complaint. The School will respond with: Specific action/information to resolve the matter. Dismissal of the complaint in which case reasons will be given to the Student in writing. Students may be referred to the CPE Mediation-Arbitration Scheme, via the SCC, if their complaint remains unresolved. The School aims to resolve all complaints within twenty-one (21) working days. All feedback and general complaints will be recorded and filed for internal review purposes. Important Note: The Dispute, Feedback and Complaints Policy does not cover the Appeal of Academic Grades, for which a separate procedure exists. Dispute resolution CIS is a participant of the Committee for Private Education Mediation-Arbitration Scheme (the “Scheme”). Under the Scheme, parties to a dispute will first be referred for mediation at the Singapore Mediation Centre,and if the dispute is not resolved through mediation, the dispute will be referred for arbitration by an arbitrator appointed by the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators. The Prescribed Dispute Resolution Centres are the Singapore Mediation Centre and the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators. Procedure for referring a case to external mediation body (for Students) Students may wish to initiate a case to the CPE Mediation-Arbitration Scheme if they are not satisfied with the outcome /actions taken by CIS. The Student will be required to fill out an application form, stating the nature of their dispute. The application form will then be sent to the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC), who will contact the Student and CIS within 7 working days for an appropriate date to hold the mediation session. Before the day of mediation, the parties involved will exchange through the SMC a concise summary of the case, as well as copies of relevant documents referred to in the summary that the parties wish to rely on during mediation. At the end of Day 1 of mediation, if the parties are able to arrive at an agreement, the mediator will draw up a settlement agreement and close the case. However if there is no settlement, the Student can decide if they wish to proceed to the arbitration stage, which is a paper-based review of the dispute. The arbitrator may call for a hearing if he or she deems it to be necessary. The Student will be required to submit a request to the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) to commence arbitration, and within 14 working days of receiving the request, CIS will submit to SIArb its defence. The Student will have another 14 working days to submit their reply to SIArb upon receiving the CIS’s defence. For a documents-only arbitration, the arbitrator will publish his or her arbitral award within 60 days from the commencement of the arbitration, while if a hearing was held, the arbitrator will publish his or her award within 90 days from the commencement of the arbitration. Description Mediation is a means of dispute resolution in which the parties to a dispute engage the assistance of an impartial third party (called the Mediator) to facilitate negotiations between them with a view to resolving their dispute privately and in an amicable manner. The focus is not on who is right or wrong, nor on who has a stronger or weaker case. Rather it is on how the parties can move forward and put the dispute behind them. The Mediator helps the parties to adopt a problem-solving approach, move away from their respective positions and focus on their interests, needs and concerns. Arbitration is a process by which the parties of a dispute submit their differences to one or more impartial parties for a final and binding decision. Being an orderly proceeding, arbitration is substantially less formal than court proceedings. Arbitration under the CPE Mediation – Arbitration Scheme is a paper-based proceeding under which each party submits his representation to the Arbitrator for consideration. Confidentiality is ensured and the disputes are resolved in a cost-effective and expeditious manner. It is an alternative to dispute resolution by litigation in a court of law.

https://www.cis.edu.sg/our-school/tanjong-katong-campus

Tanjong Katong Campus Nursery to Grade 6 Catering to the needs of Nursery to Grade 6 learners, CIS’ Tanjong Katong (TK) Campus is located in Singapore’s East Coast. TK features a mix of intimate indoor learning spaces and generous, leafy outdoor activity and sporting areas. Grade levels are clustered together to allow easy collaboration and sharing between grade levels. This design supports our inquiry-based approach and encourages a strong sense of community between and across grade levels. This combination provides our students with a warm and inviting learning environment where they can develop new skills while being challenged to try new things, as they learn about their community and the wider world. Access to the outdoors is something our TK community value, and our outdoor learning spaces take full advantage of the natural environment. Classrooms at TK are warm, colourful, and spacious. Our youngest learners’ classrooms spill directly out into our newly built Outdoor Discovery Centre, merging the indoors and the outdoors in a meaningful and unique way. Other learning spaces at TK include a library, an amphitheatre, a playing field, cricket nets, basketball and futsal courts, a STEAM makerspace and an outdoor classroom. Every area on campus is designed to support curiosity, collaboration, invention and making connections - to both people and learning. Our students develop joined-up thinking as they work together, and discover that innovation and collaboration is the key to success in today’s modern world. The TK lease has been extended to the end of 2020. Classroom sizes / details can be viewed here.

Staff A highly qualified faculty Our vision is to offer a diverse curriculum and broad range of activities that allow our students to achieve their personal potential, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related. The recruitment and retention of quality teachers and support staff is therefore fundamental to us delivering on our promise. Highly qualified teachers We believe that the diversity of our teaching body is important as we deliver a curriculum, not exclusively Canadian, that draws from the best curricula globally.

Highly qualified teachers We believe that the diversity of our teaching body is important as we deliver a curriculum, not exclusively Canadian, that draws from the best curricula globally. With over 285 qualified teachers, from over 28 countries, we are perfectly positioned to deliver on our vision to students aged 3 to 18. We believe that the diversity of our teaching body is important as we deliver a curriculum, not exclusively Canadian, that draws from the best curricula globally. Having two campuses in Singapore means that our teachers are able to collaborate cross campus to develop programmes, best practice and learning experiences. Over 60% of our teachers have multiple degrees or postgraduate qualifications, and many have IB experience (eg IB examiners, IB workshop leaders, etc). Many of our support staff are Singaporean, providing a unique connection to our home country of Singapore. Perhaps more important though is our teachers’ commitment to developing in our students the skills that they will need in order to navigate an ever changing world. This happens across all levels of the school - from Kindergarten all the way through to Grade 12. At CIS, our commitment to ongoing professional development sees us hosting a range of professional development workshops for our own teachers, IB teachers and leaders in the region, and educators from the greater regional community. You can view our staff directory to learn more.

Parents

Parents An outstandingparent community We are incredibly fortunate to have an outstanding parent community at CIS. Our parents volunteer their time and their energy to the school in a number of ways. These include helping out in the classroom, as chaperones on field trips and Open Minds, as a room parent, or as a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Every parent of a child who is enrolled in either our Lakeside or Tanjong Katong campus is automatically a member of our PTA. By being a member of the PTA, you are part of a community who believes that effective parent involvement in our school enriches the educational experience of our children. There are no fees or dues to be paid, and we encourage everyone to get involved, either by volunteering or simply attending events. Our PTA ensures it is easy for everyone to find something enjoyable to attend, be it large campus-wide events, social coffees or outings.

International Secondary School Grades 7 to 12 Secondary School at CIS is a challenging and supportive environment, resulting in students who are confident, passionate and driven to succeed. Reflecting our international context, our Grades 7 to 10 curriculum draws from the best secondary curricula globally and is delivered within the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) framework, while students in Grades 11 to 12 study the internationally recognised IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). As a result, our students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Grade 11 excursion week: Nepal 2019 Working with the Chisapani earthquake relief project, students continued building work on a local community centre, taught locals how to use computers, and donated shoes and beanies to the needy. Their 9 days in Nepal also helped them learn about Nepalese culture and the countryside.&nbsp; Grades 7 to 12 In Secondary, students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Grades 7 to 12 In Secondary, students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Grades 7 to 12 In Secondary, students develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to remain relevant and competitive in a changing world. Grades 7 to 12 Secondary School Middle Years Programme Underpinned by the MYP framework, our stimulating and creative curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential, and best prepares them for the rigours of the DP programme. Our students think deeply about issues, work collaboratively, solve problems creatively, and communicate across a variety of media. In the MYP, students are encouraged to make practical connections between their learning and the real world. They develop understanding in traditional subject areas and see the relationships between them. We help our students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for success in the DP. Spanning Grades 7 to 10, the MYP consists of eight core subjects: Language and Literature in English or Chinese, Mathematics, Science, Individuals and Societies, Language Acquisition in French, Chinese, Spanish or English, Design, Arts - Music, Drama or Visual Arts and Physical Education. Students are also required to satisfy the ‘Community and Service’ (CAS) elements of the programme.

Secondary School Diploma Programme During their final two years of secondary school, our students study the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), a comprehensive two-year curriculum that includes coursework and leads to final examinations. The Diploma Programme incorporates the best elements of national systems, without being based on any one. Globally regarded as one of the premier High School Diploma programmes, the DP is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. Research reveals that universities in the UK and USA have a high regard for IB graduates, and the skills and attitudes developed. Our students have consistently scored above the IBDP world average and in the last five years have been accepted to over 200 leading universities around the world. Students select one subject from each of the six subject groups, and complete the core three requirements: the extended essay, theory of knowledge (TOK) and creativity, action and service (CAS).&nbsp; Sample of subjects offered to Grade 11 students.

Occasionally, there are a small number of students for whom the full IBDP is not the best option. These students study a reduced number of IBDP subjects and are awarded IB certificates and a CIS High School Diploma instead. The CIS Diploma is recognised by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and widely accepted by universities and other higher education institutions.

Secondary School A holisticapproach Our house system builds a sense of belonging and pride, and our SMART&nbsp;(Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time) programme provides opportunities for students to excel and develop new-found passions, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related. Excursion Week and field-based investigations see our students exercising leadership and learning first-hand about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns. Leadership is encouraged across all areas of the school. Each day for 40 minutes, students are engaged in SMART (Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time). SMART sees students participating in a variety of student initiated activities that seek to encourage independence and self directed learning. Activities range from academic enrichment and support (eg meeting with subject teachers for additional help) to student led clubs and initiatives such as student council and Model United Nations. Our house system is designed to build a strong sense of community and pride within our Grades 1 to 12 student body, and helps students develop leadership and teamwork skills. Students regularly participate in house events, and our house captains are charged with helping to foster team spirit and a sense of belonging. Learning at CIS is not just confined to the classroom. Students participate in a range of relevant and engaging hands-on outdoor learning opportunities including field trips and field investigations which allow them to apply their learning in a real world context. Excursion Week sees students in Grades 7 to 12 travelling to countries such as Thailand, China, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia and Canada to learn about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns first hand. In Secondary, students are presented with a wide range of leadership opportunities. From the traditional student council model with an active and engaged student executive committee, to sporting captains, theatrical leads and peer tutors, student leadership creates value for both the leaders themselves and our student cohort. As they develop leadership skills that are underpinned by our core values, our students are ready to embrace the challenges that lie ahead of them and act as leaders both locally and internationally.

Secondary School Communication and assessment Communication and connecting with our parents is important to us. Curriculum information and assessments are located in My.CIS and we share important need-to-know information through our weekly newsletters and advisories. Coffee mornings, parent seminars and hands-on workshops are hosted regularly, and conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Detailed and descriptive reports are issued four times a year. Our teachers use regular assessments through the school year to track each student’s progress. In the MYP, formative assessments monitor learning and provide ongoing feedback during a unit, while summative assessments evaluate student learning at the end of a unit by comparing it to a standard or benchmark. In the DP, assessment takes the form of both internal and external assessment. All final assessment is externally assessed and moderated and leads towards the award of the Diploma. Our open door policy ensures parents are able to meet with their child’s teachers at a mutually convenient time to discuss any concerns they may have. CIS benchmarks student achievement (Grades 3 to 10) against Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) standards and international school norms in an external assessment called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). Conducted three times a year, MAP results in Math and Literacy are also used to identify trend patterns and overall cohort progress year on year.

Primary School An international curriculum Underpinned by the Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework, our primary school curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential. Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based approach teaches students to take ownership and responsibility for their learning. They are able to think deeply about issues, work collaboratively, solve problems creatively, and communicate across a variety of media. Our primary school students can choose to enrol in either our English immersion programme or our Chinese-English bilingual programme. In our English immersion programme, lessons are conducted in English except for compulsory daily language acquisition classes. Students can choose to study either French, Spanish or Chinese. In our Chinese-English bilingual programme, students learn equally in both English and Chinese. Our rigorous curriculum delivered within the PYP framework, means our students engage in topic based learning commonly referred to as the Unit of Inquiry (UOI). Where possible, specialist subject areas such maths, English, Chinese, French, Spanish, art, music, drama and physical education, are integrated into students’ learning as they explore a particular concept or topic (UOI). Science and social studies are learnt exclusively in the context of the UOI. Our top Digital Literacy Coaches work with our teachers to ensure that technology is used to support and extend learning across subject areas. Our unique STEAM programme, plays is an integral part of every primary school students’ education. We have a dedicated STEAM teacher, resources and spaces for students to innovate, create, problem solve and engage in design thinking. Our STEAM teacher collaborates with other teachers to integrate STEAM opportunities in units of inquiry and specific subject areas. As one of Singapore’s leading private primary schools, learning is not just confined to the classroom. Instead, we engage our students in a wide variety of outdoor learning activities ranging from lessons in our Outdoor Discovery Centres to field trips, excursion week and Open minds (hands-on learning experiences in settings such as Fort Canning and Sungei Buloh wetlands). Parent involvement in CIS’ primary school is actively encouraged and plays an important role. We provide many opportunities for parents to engage in their child’s education such as helping out with class reading activities, field trips and volunteering as a room parent with the PTA. Developing 21st century skills Primary students are able to think deeply about issues, work collaboratively, solve problems creatively, and communicate across a variety of media.

Delivered by our teachers, CCAs are organised into three blocks each school year. The four CCA focus areas are: Arts, Sports, STEAM, and Leadership (Lakeside) / Performing Arts (Tanjong Katong). Our student council provides further opportunities for our senior primary school students to develop their leadership skills. Students campaign for the executive roles and are elected by their peers. These leadership opportunities ensure our students recognise the importance of responsibility to others and what it takes to create and promote a positive school culture.

Academic Programme Academic Programme CIS Primary School (Grades 1- 6) is the perfect environment for young students to develop their natural curiosity into a passion for lifelong learning. Our welcoming and inclusive culture combined with our holistic curriculum and meaningful learning experiences based on the IB PYP framework, creates students who are happy, confident and engaged. They are inspired to be creative, curious and excel in every endeavour they pursue. In Primary School, we follow a stimulating and challenging holistic curriculum underpinned by the inquiry-based IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework. Our curriculum is designed to encompasses the best elements from curricula around the world, reflecting the school’s core principles, our international context and desire to promote personal, academic, creative and physical development. Students in Grades 1 to 5 have the choice of enrolling in either our English immersion programme (where English is the language of instruction) or our pioneering bilingual Chinese-English programme. Both programmes follow the PYP framework and include language, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education, arts (visual arts, drama, music and dance) and community service. Students enrolled in our English immersion programme must also study a global language. Students apply their learning through a range of exciting and relevant hands-on opportunities such as field trips, Excursion Week, Open Minds and visits from experts (we don’t just simply confine it to the classroom). Through our ‘One to World’ programme, technology is used across the different subjects to support learning and increase technology skills, confidence and experience. Communication with parents Establishing a strong partnership with each parent about their child’s learning progress is a major priority of ours. We seek to keep parents informed about their child’s development via teacher blogs in My.CIS (our parent portal), weekly newsletters, student-led conferences, parent -teacher meetings, coffee mornings, parent seminars and workshops. We also have an open door policy allowing parents to meet with their child’s teachers at a mutually convenient time to discuss any concerns they may have. Learning environments Primary School learning takes place at both our Lakeside and Tanjong Katong campuses in a welcoming and inclusive environment where each student feels happy, secure and valued. Both campuses have dedicated, purpose-built learning spaces designed to support our holistic curriculum, encourage collaboration and stimulate creativity. Students spend most of their time with their homeroom teacher, and class sizes are kept small, allowing ample time for individualised attention. Lakeside Campus Students at our Lakeside Campus enjoy a wide range of modern sport, art and technology facilities, a dedicated junior library, spacious and comfortable pod areas (common break out spaces), and classrooms which are bright and colourful. Tanjong Katong Campus At our Tanjong Katong Campus, students enjoy bright and colourful classrooms, a gym, library and a wide range of outdoor learning spaces including an outdoor amphitheatre, drama studio, playground, butterfly garden and large sports field.

Underpinned by the PYP framework, our stimulating and creative curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential. Teaching instruction caters to each student’s needs, abilities, and learning styles, resulting in a community of happy, confident and engaged learners. Language of instruction Our youngest learners in Nursery* (2 years of age) enjoy a unique bilingual environment with an English speaking teacher, and two Chinese speaking teaching assistants. Both languages are integrated into classroom activities, preparing children for our Pre-Kindergarten (3 years of age) dual language immersion model. In Pre-Kindergarten, morning classes are conducted entirely in either English or Chinese, while afternoon classes are conducted in English only (providing full day students with a dual language immersion model where desired). From the age of four, students can either enter our English immersion programme with daily French or Chinese lessons, or our bilingual programme where students learn equally in both Chinese and English. An international curriculum As one of Singapore's&nbsp;leading private kindergartens, we offer an engaging inquiry, play-based teaching approach grounded in research and best&nbsp;practice. Extensive studies show hands-on exploration solidifies concepts and understanding more concretely than rote learning. Our Nursery programme is PYP inspired, and children learn as they engage in both teacher-guided and child-initiated exploratory, investigative and imaginative play. Our nursery curriculum focuses on developing children’s fundamental social, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as their fine and gross motor skills. As children move into Pre-Kindergarten, they engage in topic-based learning commonly referred to as the Unit of Inquiry (UOI), and different subject areas are integrated as they explore a particular concept or topic. Students have dedicated literacy and numeracy lessons, and specialist teachers for Chinese and French. Physical education, art, music and drama are delivered by either a specialist or the homeroom teacher. Where possible, learning in these specialist areas links back to the overarching topic. Science and social studies are learnt exclusively in the context of the UOI. Our STEAM programme supports students’ natural curiosity and creativity. Our kindergarten&nbsp; students learn how to make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts in STEAM.

Kindergarten Discovery and exploration Our Lakeside Campus located in the west of Singapore,&nbsp;adopts a schools-within-a-school&nbsp;design, creating unique communities inside the school&nbsp;and accommodating students aged 2 to 18. Our kindergarten&nbsp;children learn in a dedicated kindergarten&nbsp;wing, where classrooms are organised in grade levels and spill out into learning pods. These learning pods are large, open, shared spaces where teachers set up hands-on learning centres. Other learning spaces that foster skill development include a junior library, kitchen, black box theatre, STEAM makerspace, Kindergarten aquatics complex and an Outdoor Discovery Centre. Our Tanjong Katong (TK) Campus located in the east of Singapore, is smaller and more intimate and accommodates students 2 to 12 years of age. Classrooms for our youngest learners are warm, colourful, spacious and grouped together, ensuring a strong sense of community. Each classroom has direct access to our newly built Outdoor Discovery Centre. Other learning spaces include a library, amphitheatre, and STEAM makerspace. About CIS’ Outdoor Discovery Centres Our Outdoor Discovery Centres are used as an extension of our indoor classrooms and support learning in ways that extend far beyond a traditional playground. Our students love everything about these centres but some of the extra special features include a play fort, sound and herb garden, mud kitchen, natural tunnel, bike track and quiet and peaceful places for reflection. Through playing with mud, water, sand and loose objects such as sticks, stones, mesh and rope, our students engage in imaginative and creative thinking while solving problems. They learn to calculate, measure, invent, estimate, specify, analyse, hypothesise and test theories, thereby developing their thinking, communication and research skills. Swimming Our unique learning spaces; junior library, a kitchen, a black box theatre, a STEAM Makerspace, a Kindergarten aquatics complex and our Outdoor Discovery Centre fosters creative skills development and nurtures our students’ natural sense of curiosity. Kindergarten Communication and parent participation Parents play a very important role in their child’s foundational years and we encourage our parents to take an active role in their child’s education and school&nbsp;life. In turn, we aim to keep parents informed about their child’s learning progress, our programmes and the latest in educational research. Our early-years teachers are passionate about the children in their care, and work to ensure they feel safe, valued, secure and happy in both our schools. In nursery and pre-kindergarten, parents are welcome to stay for the daily settling-in activities, allowing their child to adjust to the concept of separation and school life. Our teachers communicate with parents every Friday via My.CIS (our parent portal) and we share important information through our advisories and weekly newsletters. Coffee mornings, assemblies, parent seminars and hands-on workshops are hosted regularly, while parent-teacher conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Student learning is documented in portfolios, and we issue detailed reports twice a year.
