A new way of learning

Pearl of africa international school entebbe 

Our Vision

The teachers use strategies and skills that are child-centred to impart the content of subjects to students. The teachers follow the guidelines of the curriculum, but the needs and abilities of the students are always the starting point of educational planning. Each student has their targets when it comes to the areas of development, i.e. Social, Emotional, Physical and Creative development.

International Curriculum

Cambridge primary is an educational program for young learners that combines a world class curriculum, high quality support for teachers and integrated assessment. http://www.cie.org.uk/. The school follows the guidelines of the British Ministry of Education and Ofsted (British Inspection) to uphold our academic standards. International Registration Number PPS/P/91.

We offer quality education in the reach of every pupil thus a chance to succeed and discover their talents by inspiring, challenging and stimulating a better approach to learning. Our approach provides a diverse range of learning, enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities appropriate to each student’s unique stage of development, knowledge, skills and understanding.

We offer every pupil a chance to succeed and discover their talents. The teachers use several learning style techniques such as: class discussions, one-ones with the pupils, debates, trips, etc. thus a modern and less rigid learning environment.

We promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students to build a firm foundation for pupils. We recognize each pupil as an individual with their own dreams, talents and capabilities to prepare them for the later experiences in life.

Assessment Policy

Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning experience that allows us to provide crucial feedback to students in order to make more effective progress. Moreover, monitoring our students’ progress ensures that every pupil receives the support and encouragement that he or she needs.

Assessment can provide perspective and an evidence-based reference point through which educational objectives can be set. Additionally, assessment is useful to inform class planning, assessment of school resources, and even the training needs for our staff. We emphasize assessment procedures that are free from bias, stereotyping, and generalization with respect to gender, class, and race.

We have 3 main forms of assessment, and these are: I) formative assessment where teachers evaluate pupils’ on a day to day basis. II) In-school summative assessment which enables the school to evaluate how much a pupil has learnt at the end of a teaching period. III) External summative assessment in the forms of  a)British Curriculum test i.e Checkpoints and progression tests. As well  b) National examinations for the Ugandan national Curriculum.

Accreditation

We are fully accredited, registered and licensed by the Cambridge International Examinations, the Ministry of Education and Sports under the registration number PPS/P/75   National and Alliance Francaise (AF).
