The Cambridge International Primary Programme from University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) develops English, Mathematics and Science skills in young children across the world. It gives your child excellent preparation for secondary education.

The Cambridge International Primary Programme comes from one of the world's leading assessment organisations. The Primary Programme is an excellent framework for learning in the primary years and provides a solid foundation for your child's future.

Designed for children aged 5-11, the Primary Programme provides learning objectives for each year of your child's primary education. Its step-by-step programme of learning takes children from the start of primary education to completion, before they move on to secondary education.

In the final year of primary education, students can take the Cambridge International Primary Checkpoint. All students completing the tests will be issued with a Primary Certificate of Achievement by University of Cambridge International Examinations. The Primary Programme is flexible. It can be taken alongside a national curriculum or on its own.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is now part of the educational experience of children in most parts of the world. Taught both as a discrete subject in its own right, as well as embedded within the curriculum, ICT is increasingly being regarded as a new "literacy", alongside reading, writing and numeracy. Cambridge ICT Starters is designed to introduce students to the key ICT applications they need to use to acquire that literacy and to understand the impact of technology on our daily lives. The syllabus provides a framework in which ICT competence and practical skills can be developed within an environment that is appropriate for the age of the students together with a structured scheme of assessment. Modules can be delivered according to the needs of each learning situation - across the curriculum or as a separate course of study.

At each stage of assessment, students will use ICT to:

  • communicate
  • handle information
  • model
  • measure and control

This syllabus operates at three levels of the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Framework for Qualifications:

  • Initial Steps
  • Next Steps
  • On Track
