P4 Assessment Plan Rationale : Important aspect of learning and teaching to support holistic development of our pupils Term 1 Term 2 Term 3 Term 4 HA SA1 HA SA2 (Streamin g Exam.) Why introduce Subject-based Banding? To provide more flexibility to pupils with strengths

and abilities that vary across subjects To encourage greater interaction among pupils with different strengths We recognise different abilities... and help each student to proceed at a pace that he can manage. Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam Former Minister for Education How does Subject-based Banding work? How does Subject-based Banding work? Likely Subject Combinations Likely Subject Combinations Any other subject-based combinations will be recommended on a case-by-case basis After Pri 5

Pupils will offer the same subject combination, subject to performance The school will make the final decision, considering the best interest of the child Achievement Bands Criteria for Recommendation for Higher Mother Tongue English, Math and Science: at least high Band 2

Mother Tongue: at least a Band 1 Interest and aptitude for Mother Tongue Language Teachers recommendation HMT will be recommended for all pupils who meet the criteria, regardless of P5 class Process for Subject-based Banding After SA2, option forms will be issued where the school will recommend the subject combination The scores of all 4 subjects (or all 3 subjects if child is exempted from Mother Tongue) and previous years performance will be

considered. Process for Subject-based Banding Parents will indicate the options they would prefer their child to take. They are strongly encouraged to adopt the schools recommendation which was carefully analysed based on the childs results and professional inputs from teachers who have taught the child. Parents to meet form teacher to collect results and option form after SA2. Pupils will submit option form to the form teachers by the deadline Pri 5 classes will be assigned by 1st week of December. A notice will be put up in school and the school website. At the end of Pri 5, any changes to subject combinations will be decided by the school. Progression to Secondary Level

Progression to secondary level depends on PSLE Score. Different expectations of standard and foundation subjects will be taken into account when the PSLE score is calculated. Offering subjects at foundation level is not a disadvantage. Your child will be able to focus on building up strong fundamentals in the weaker subjects. Parents are strongly encouraged to prepare their child early for the subjectbased banding.
