Assessment policy

For the conduct of the weighted assessment tasks carried out in different terms for P3 to P6, we would like to bring your attention to the following:

Observation of punctuality
  • No extra time will be given for late-comers.
  • For pupils who are late by half an hour or more, they may be barred from sitting for the examination.

Absence from assessment
  • If a pupil is unwell, it is advised that he/she be resting at home, supported by a valid medical certificate from the doctor. Please ask the doctor to indicate your child’s diagnosis on the medical certificate as well. 
  • Pupils on medical leave will not be assessed. If they turn up, they will not be allowed to take the assessment unless there is a separate doctor’s certificate to certify that they are fit to sit for the assessment.
  • For any other instances of absence observed, a valid reason (e.g., bereavement), supported with documentary proof, is expected.
  • For pupils whose external competition/exam dates clash with the internal school examination dates, they are to re-schedule their external competition/exam dates.
  • No make-up examination will be arranged for the absentees.  

Level Assessment plans
This document provides a detailed breakdown and description of the different types of assessment tasks carried out in the course of the academic year, by the level, and across all the relevant subjects.
Assessment plans have been sent via Parents’ Gateway Announcement. 

Applied Learning Programme

energ I ze, ex C ite,  and exal T ! – Learning through empowering @SVPS

As a Lead@ ICT school, the school has developed its own Project Work programme. The Programme spans across six disciplines and six academic levels. The Programme aims to:
allow each child to see the applicative use of subjects
imbibe values through experiential learning
develop pupils’ Social Emotional competencies and 21CC skills
promote creativity and innovation 
promote SDL and CoL

Approach to Program Design

In the development of the Programme, close reference was made to the school’s teaching and learning framework. The 3 key tenets of the Teaching & Learning (T&L) framework are: Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment. In addition to the aligning the Programme to the T&L framework, the team also took cognisance of the school’s niche which is in the Arts- more specifically Media Art. The programme outcomes were also aligned to outcomes of the T&L framework.

PW is anchored by a subject per level. This enables pupils to experience PW at a multi-faceted level, with each subject offering its uniqueness through PW. A topic within the syllabus of each level has been selected to further extend it as PW. Each level also specialises in an ICT skill that is progressive from Primary 1 till 5, culminating at the Primary 6 level whereby the pupils are given a choice to choose a suitable ICT tool which will lend well to their selected project. 


In accordance to the 3Es:  Empower, Experience  and  Explore to Excel , pupils are  empower ed to construct their own knowledge as they create an e-journal of their learning journey to the zoo and butterfly farms, as well as plan for a party,  taking into considerations constraints set by the teachers. Pupils  experience  and connect to the real world as they learn vocabulary words at the zoo, using the iPad as a tool, and watch the lifecycle of butterflies through a butterfly breeding kit and transfer their observations onto an online timeline. Pupils  explore  creative problem-solving solutions and various designs such as in the creation of a prototype, taking into consideration its features before creating the physical prototype using a 3D printing device. Older pupils will continue on to design a 3D futuristic eldercare home, with an extension of creating a physical innovative 3D furniture using the 3D printing device. Alongside with achieving the intended learning outcomes for the selected topic, pupils are guided in using the relevant ICT tools tagged to each level to enable pupils to accumulate their ICT skills as they progress through each level.
