We had a number of visitors this week including the China Bilingual Education Team, the other two NAE Shanghai Principals and inspectors from the local government and town council, and Beijing national school. we have the deep conversation to support school development. We want to share three parts of primary today.
NACIS Primary Consequences Ladder
At the meeting between Primary Leadership Team and the Primary Grade Parent Ambassadors this Wednesday, we shared with parents our Primary Consequences Ladder, which has been implemented since this semester, and listened to parents’ feedbacks and opinions. The Consequences Ladder has been aligned with The Rules of Primary and Secondary School Teachers Implementing Education Discipline (Trial) issued by the Ministry of Education and refined according to our school’s actual circumstances. The Consequences are divided into 5 levels. Based on students’ behaviors, we will have relevant follow-ups and disposals including verbal waring, red dojo, loss of playtime, suspension, etc. At the same time, we will communicate with parents through phone calls, emails or face-to-face conversations. Consequences of certain levels will be recorded in iSams and available to teachers. When students move on to the next grade or secondary section, the teachers can have a look at these records.
We would like to emphasize that, this Consequences Ladder is not made to punish students. Our goal is to educate students and guide the them in specific ways so that they can learn from their mistakes and make the right choices in the future. This will be beneficial to their growth. For students who have learned from their mistakes, we will give rewards and encouragements in timely manner. At the same time, we hope that parents can work jointly with us to educate your child, respect the teachers’ decisions and cooperate with teachers and our school in guiding students who violate rules and disciplines. Next week, we'll share with you more relevant information.
Update in English Curriculum
Starting from next Friday, the English class exercise books will be going home on a bi- weekly basis. This will provide you with the opportunity to see the children’s English learning in class. You may also refer to our Firefly posts and have some in-depth conversation with your child. As a school, we are always willing to maintain a positive home-school relationship with you. We hope that this improvement will continue to enhance our mutual understanding and partnership. In addition, we are reviewing our homework, marking and feedback procedures, and at the same time, looking into and following up with the data of various assessments. We are confident that in this semester, you will have a greater insight into our English curriculum. Later, we will also invite you to attend on-campus activities such as workshops and discussions.
