Cambridge Primary, typically for learners aged 5 to 11 years, gives schools a world-class curriculum to develop learner skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science. It enables teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress with two optional assessments: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. You can download Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Specimen 2014 for practice at the end of the article.
The tests are marked in Cambridge and provide schools with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving schools detailed information and parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
Foundation for secondary education
Cambridge Primary helps identify a learner’s strengths and weaknesses and can be used to support learning and development. It prepares learners for a smooth transition to Cambridge Secondary 1 and beyond.
Cambridge Primary assessments, including Cambridge Primary Checkpoint, provide teachers with an international benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure learners’ progress over time. They also enable detailed, structured reporting to parents.
Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Primary has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.
Cambridge Primary complements a range of teaching methods and curricula. No part of the programme is compulsory and schools have freedom to choose the parts that best suit their situation. This means they can use Cambridge Primary while following their school or national curriculum, or offer the entire programme.
Comprehensive support for teachers
Support includes face-to-face and online training, curriculum frameworks, teacher guides, lists of resources and a secure support site.
CIE hold two Cambridge Primary Checkpoint test series each year, in May and October. The tests cover all major areas of learning in the Cambridge Primary curriculum frameworks for English, English as a second language, mathematics and science. [source]
