School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
In CVSS, we believe there is a star in all our students and help our students find their own compass in life and realise the star within; like the North Star, shining brightly with impeccable character and excellence in both academic and non-academic domains, as a guiding light for the community and the world. We aim to foster a vibrant learning community with a nurturing school climate through diverse and engaging school programmes with ample opportunities for all. Our culture and ethos are 'Achieve our Best' (every student a 'North Star'); 'Believe in Every Child' (everyone can achieve and all can succeed); 'Care for Every Child' (every teacher guides and mentors each 'North Star' in developing holistically as individuals) and 'Determined to Learn' (every student comes to school with the right attitude for learning and the mindset of high expectations). Our North Star Education Programme offers a total curriculum to develop our students to be world and future-ready, with the right values and 21st century competencies. Our instructional programme is based on i-TEACH Framework for integrated, engaged and assessed learning, with teachers as curriculum innovators, collaborative learners and holistic educators. Our school-wide pedagogies include Inquiry-Based Learning, Thinking Routines, ICT-enabled Active Learning, Self-Directed & Collaborative Learning, Assessment for Learning and Whole School Approach to Effective Communication. We have consistently achieved value-added results through the PrIME (Proactive, Intervention, Motivating & Empowering) framework driven by Academic Excellence (ACE) Committee with strategies such as PEC (Personal Educational & Career) Plan/Aspirational Target Setting, ASPIRE motivational programme, After School Study Programme/Start Right Programme/Teacher Mentors etc.
