In the area of Primary Education:

  1. The primary grades diagnostic assessments were administered system-wide with specific emphasis placed on teachers planning based on the demonstrated needs of pupils.
  2. Greater emphasis is being placed on the early-grades literacy and numeracy preparation of pupils to ensure mastery is attained. To that end, all schools are now required to prepare action plans based on the needs of pupils as demonstrated by assessments and to report on the progress made at the end of every term.
  3. Continuous professional development of teachers at the primary level has been expanded to all regions with specific emphasis on education delivery in the core subject areas.
  4. Music instruction has been improved with the training of primary teachers to facilitate the formation and sustainability of school choirs. The expansion to include the use of instruments such as recorders and steel bands will be attained through further training of teachers. This is keeping with our objective of significantly enhancing arts education within the school system.
