The JSPS Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Framework serves to guide the planning and delivery of CCE programmes in Jing Shan Primary School. It captures our beliefs about CCE, our Jing Shan Values, and our approach to delivering CCE in the school.

Our Beliefs

‘Every Jing Shan Pupil is Good'

We believe that there is goodness in every Jing Shan pupil. Every Jing Shan pupil will not only know and learn how to be a good person of character and responsible citizen who contributes to society, he/she will display good character at all times.

‘Every Jing Shan Teacher is a CCE Teacher’

We believe that every Jing Shan teacher is a Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) teacher who plays a key role and committed to affirming and guiding our pupils in their journey of self-discovery.

Our School Values

Our Approach

Our 3-H (Head, Heart & Hands) approach encapsulates the school’s approach to implementing character and citizenship education in the school. The 3H approach is adopted to equip pupils with the Knowledge (Head), Attitudes (Heart) and Skills (Hand) necessary for CCE.  The school hopes to nurture in our pupils A Head to Learn, A Heart to Feel, and Hands to Serve.

CCE teachers will plan and infuse CCE learning outcomes through our lessons and programs. Knowledge (Head) is imparted to pupils through the formal curriculum. Carefully designed programmes that integrate the learning of CCE through authentic and reflective experiences will allow the pupils to be engaged through their Heart and Hands, Thereby equipping them with the necessary Attitude and Skills to practise the LIGERR values.

Role of CCE Teacher

The 5 Ps of CCE (Purpose, Pupil, ExPerience, Professional Development and Partnerships) outline the role of the teacher in delivering CCE.

1)    Our CCE teachers must ensure that every CCE lesson is delivered with Clarity of Purpose and promote a culture that believes in the value of CCE.

2)    Our CCE Lessons planned and delivered will be Focused on the Pupil. Teachers need to identify the needs of our pupils, do purposeful planning to cater to the differentiated needs of our pupils.

3)    Our CCE teachers are also responsible in creating a Holistic ExPerience for our pupils.

4)    Our CCE teachers will undertake their Professional Development to monitor the effective use of CCE pedagogies, improve their understanding of embracing their role in CCE efforts and how well they do it.

5)    Our CCE teachers will effectively engaging our parents and stakeholders to recognise the importance of Partnerships in CCE.
