Extra Curricular Activities (ECA’s)
ECA’s provide an opportunity for enrichment programmes beyond the ecurriculum.
They run for 1 semester at a time providing enough contact time to develop skills. These skills might include but are not limited to, Coding, Taekwondo, Art, Art mindfulness, Movie Making, Sports, Chess and many more.
Personalised Learning Programme (PLP)
The Personalised Learning Programme at our Dempsey Hill campus is an additional service that provides short term intervention for children where gaps in learning have been identified. This in turn is where they are not meeting the required age-appropriate standards in a particular area - Reading, Writing or Mathematics. It can also be implemented to address behaviour or social and emotional needs.
There is an additional fee as small group or individual sessions will be implemented. All children taking the PLP will have an Individual Educational Plan which is reviewed termly.
English Support Classes
The English support classes are provided for students in order to deepen proficiency in their English language acquisition, complement current skillsets taught in Grade 8 and to build students’ language foundation skills in preparation for IGCSE English as a Second Language.
Chinese Bridge Programme (for Centrium campus only)
The Chinese Bridge is a mandatory programme that provides Chinese support for students to achieve the required standards for the Bilingual Programme. Students who did not pass the Youth Chinese Test (YCT) Level 1 at Grade 2, YCT Level 2 at Grade 4 and YCT Level 3 at Grade 5 are required to attend the Chinese Bridge programme.
We hope that we will be able to satisfy your concerns via the Complaints Procedure. If we do not, you may wish to seek to resolvethe matter through the CPE Student Services Centre, using the Dispute Resolution Scheme of the Committee for Private Education, which is described on the CPE website. This dispute resolution scheme may, where appropriate, involve the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC) or Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) as the mediation centres.
