The shift in paradigm of learning and teaching

We are at the cusp of an upheaval in the thought process when it comes to teaching and learning within our classrooms. This change has long been coming and it is finally upon us. The new world of the 21st century will be unlike any that we and our previous generations have experienced. Keeping this in mind we need to prepare our students today and now. The national education policy (NEP) 2020 also voices the same concern. We have to be more careful in what we teach in the classroom and how we bring about this change. A shift in focus from mastery of concepts to mastery of skills and competencies integrated with development of human values. The essence that the policy carries can be succinctly put. The foundations of learning shaping experiences of the learners, rather than emphasis on mastery of concepts through performance, coupled with a holistic approach to incorporate beliefs and values.

This new change we understand will take time to be enacted in letter and in spirit. But we are ready and will be there all along the way. Learning together with our students from all their challenges and celebrating all their victories as they reach every milestone in the learning journey. We are excited to start this new journey of teaching and learning together.

Secondary Classes (IX-X) - How to secure high

Comprising classes IX to XII, the senior school is where early life's lessons are put to test. Rigorous practice and study techniques with special emphasis on analysis and conceptualization are woven into the curriculum, as students prepare to appear for CBSE exam. Child has to take either Sanskrit or Hindi as second language. In Mathematics also there are two types:
  • I. Standard Mathematics - Those who want to pursue Science Stream in the future.
  • II. Basic Mathematics - Those who want to pursue Commerce or Humanities Stream.

Skill Subjects - Information Technology (Subject Code: 402)

If a student fails in any one of the three compulsory subjects (i.e. Science, Mathematics and Social Science) and passes in the Skill subject (offered as sixth optional subject), then that subject will be replaced by the Skill subject and the result of Class X Board examination will be computed accordingly.

Academic Elective Subject - Computer Applications (Subject Code: 165)

If a student fails in any 2nd language subject, out of first five subjects, the same will be replaced by the subject taken as sixth subject (in case of no skills subjects offered) or as seventh subject (optional), provided here and the result of Class X Board examination will be computed accordingly.

Assessment and Parent - Teacher Interaction

The best Assessment is one where the child known's the criteria of assessment before doing the task. This requires a thoughtful and mindful approach along with advance planning and preparation by the Teacher. All assessments in SBPS subscribe to this criterion based transparent methodology and not just based on marks alone.

After every topic, a review is done and the performance of the student is noted. The aim is to ensure that students have understood the course work, developed an interest in the subject, are curious to know more and do not resort to rote learning.

As such, the students are assessed continuously and on a timely basis so that appropriate feedback can lead to correction and improvement; with all subject teachers giving a detailed report at the end of every academic term. The Class Teacher, the concerned Section coordinator and the Principal form the Team to continuously monitor each child's learning and performance.

Parent-Teacher Interaction is practiced very seriously and regularly as well believes that the School and the Parents are 'partners' in the responsibility of imparting quality education. Therefore, Parent-Teacher Meetings are scheduled on a regular basis and throughout the year at appropriate intervals.
