CIS aims to provide a high standard and quality of service in respect of its programmes of study, services and facilities.

Official feedback and complaints can be submitted to feedback@cis.edu.sg or via the online feedback form.

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.

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.

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.

Kindergarten at CIS ( 2 - 5 years) We nurture our students’ natural sense of curiosity and wonder through our inquiry and play-based teaching approach. Kindergarten An international curriculum At CIS, our children’s social and emotional well-being is paramount. We nurture their natural sense of curiosity and wonder through our inquiry and play-based teaching approach. 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 both our English or Chinese-English bilingual programmes. 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 and a Kindergarten kitchen. 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 an Outdoor Discovery Centre. Other learning spaces include a library, amphitheatre, and STEAM makerspace. * Please note that nursery for children 2 years of age will not be offered in 20-21.&nbsp; About TK's Outdoor Discovery Centre TK Outdoor Discovery Centre is 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. 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 via digital portfolios, and we issue detailed reports twice a year. Our open door policy ensures parents are always able to meet with their child’s teachers at a mutually convenient time to discuss any concerns, ideas or questions they may have.

A passion for lifelong learning Primary School is the perfect environment for students to develop their inherent curiosity into a passion for lifelong learning. 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.

Primary School A holistic approach Providing each and every child with a holistic educational experience is important to us. Our unique co-curricular programme, run during school hours, extends curricular learning by providing students with creative, performance, service and sporting opportunities. Our house system and primary student council encourage a strong sense of community, leadership and team spirit. Our house system helps students develop the best skills in leadership and teamwork. Students regularly participate in house events, and our house captains are charged with helping to foster team spirit and a sense of belonging. Our primary school co-curricular activities (CCA) programme is designed to provide opportunities that extend and enhance our curriculum during the school day. 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.

Primary School Communication and assessment Communication and connecting with our parents is important to us. Our teachers communicate with parents every Friday via 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, while parent-teacher conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Detailed and descriptive reports are issued twice a year. Our teachers use regular assessments throughout the school year to track each child’s progress. 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. Equally important, teachers consider a child’s attitude, effort, commitment, and social development when reporting. CIS benchmarks student achievement (Grades 3 to 10) against NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) standards and international school norms in an external assessment called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). Conducted three times a year, MAP results in maths and literacy are also used to identify trend patterns and overall cohort progress year on year.

Arts

Arts Showcasing creativityand talent CIS has a thriving and vibrant Arts programme which is integral to school life. We adopt a two-pronged approach to the arts: the curricular or classroom experience and extracurricular activities and performances. Arts activities (music, dance, drama and visual art) allow our students to explore, shape and communicate their sense of identity and understanding of the world, while developing creativity, self confidence, resilience and adaptability.

Secondary school production Once on this Island Arts activities allow our students to explore, shape and communicate their sense of identity and understanding of the world. From Kindergarten to Grade 12, arts experiences build confidence and are the perfect avenue to showcase creativity and experience teamwork. Through the arts, our students are engaged in imaginative and productive activity as they explore different cultures; use arts as a form of communication; and learn about the elements of performance, production and stage and event management. Arts opportunities include a range of musical ensembles and bands, choral groups, productions, performances and exhibits. These events run throughout the school year and across all divisions as appropriate. Our students also participate in regional events and competitions like the Singapore Youth Film Festival where two of our students recently won best overall film and best acting. At times, performances and showcases are conducted in another language such as Chinese or French. This multilingual approach and focus provides our students with opportunities to practice another language, while developing multilingual skills and competency in second or third languages. Facilities that support our thriving arts programme include fully equipped drama and dance studios, a 500-seat theatre (Lakeside), music and music practice rooms, and an audio-visual suite supported with the latest equipment (Lakeside).
