Schooling at primary level is organized into three cycles: Early Learning, Basic Education and Consolidation. These cycles make up the learning programs adapted to our pupils.
The continuity of education (Infant/Junior, Junior/Secondary) allows us to put in place coherent syllabuses and to make sure of the success of all our pupils.
At the end of each cycle the pupil will have built up two sets of skills: he or she will have acquired knowledge, and at the same time the ability to do a range of tasks.
Presentation of Preschool
The aim of Preschool is to help each child, through adapted approaches, to become autonomous and to acquire knowledge and abilities to enable him/her to be successful in Basic education in the “cours préparatoire” (CP). The main objective of Preschool is the acquisition of oral language skills that are rich, organized, and understood by others.
In Preschool, children create relationships with peers and with adults. They practice their motor skills, as well as their sensorial, affective, relational and intellectual skills. They gradually become pupils. They discover the world of writing.
The program of Preschool, which has no time restriction, presents the broad activity areas that are to be tackled during the three years preceding the entry into compulsory schooling. It sets the objectives to be achieved and the abilities to be acquired before the transition into Primary school. The implementation of the program has to take into account the rhythm and different steps of development of the child.
Presentation of Primary school
The national programs of Primary school define, for each field of teaching, the knowledge and abilities to be acquired within each cycle. They set annual targets that enable the organization of the progressivity of the learning process is most of the fields of teaching. They however leave the free choice of methods and approaches, which shows the confidence in teachers for an implementation adapted to pupils.
Within this framework, teachers offer an accompaniment of every pupil, particularly those in difficulties, by personalizing the assistance to learning processes in order to favor everyone’s learning achievement. The programs of Primary school precisely define the contents of fundamental knowledge, the acquisition of which is an objective for every pupil.
Regular assessments organized by the teachers enable an evaluation of the acquisitions and level of the pupils. They contribute to the validation of the different stages in the mastery of the Common Base. They are communicated to families and favor discussion, which is useful for the monitoring of the children’s schooling.
Parents’ meetings are organized for each level at the beginning of the school year and during the school year for specific projects concerning different levels (Discovery Class) or, when necessary, certain pupils (Individual Plans for Success at School).
