Our Primary school programme is based on the Cambridge Primary Curriculum.
This programme is typically for children who are aged 5 to 11years. It is a world-class curriculum to develop learner skills and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science. It enables teachers to assess children's learning as they progress through the course with Cambridge Progressive Tests and at the end of the course, the Cambridge Checkpoint and the Primary School Leaving Examination.
The main subjects include English, Mathematics, Science Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia. These subjects are evaulated through forrmative as well as summative examinations. The Foundation Course or Primary Curriculum also includes subjects that are graded. Sujects that are graded include Physical Educatio, Art and Craft, Computer Science, Faith Builder and Character First, PPKn, Music, Life Skills and Global Perspective or Project Work.
Students enrolling into BBS are required to sit for appropriate Placement Tests that evaluates their readiness for the appropriate levels.
Tests & Exams
As part of Mastery Learning, periodical tests and assessments are part and parcel of learning and understanding of the concepts taught and acquired.
At BBS, we ensure that our students attain the necessary cultural and disciline framework to develop into responsible, independent and discerning adults who would be an asset to society and their community.
In addition, their learning journey offers them the rigour, opportunities and the skills to effect change as global citizens who are critical thinkers, persons of integrity and leaders of the future.
BBS is also very mindful of our students needs as we progress. We are boosting our Project Work component to be in the form of Global Perspectives, Design for Thinking and working with the Sustainable Development Goals in the Foundation Stage. When students reach the ages of 9 and above, they are guided through weekly lessons to understand and acquire skills to work on problem solving and to think out of the box.
Students are also exposed to Life-skills that are necessary and useful. This gives another perspective to value add to their reportaoire of opportunities to enjoy and expolre how they could serve their community and the world at large.

Sustainable Developmental Goals
The SDGs are 17 goals defined by the United Nations to tackle the world’s biggest problems by 2030.
We teach our students SDGs at a very young age to ensure all students acquire the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to promote sustainable development.
At BBS, studying the goals is part of a broader, international approach to learning. We teach them to be part of the solutions.
