  8. 8. SCHOOL LOGO After 6 years of education in Frontier Primary, each and every pupil will shine forth after being nurtured by our caring staff in a dynamic culture of learning strongly grounded in Values, Knowledge and Competencies.
  9. 9. SCHOOL LOGO The word ‘Frontier’ urges Frontierers to dare to forge ahead to achieve breakthroughs in boundaries. Hence we have consciously included the word in our logo to remind us of our aspirations to evolve and expand beyond the status quo. The pupil will shine brightly. The pupils are also depicted as leaping forward to welcome the future with confidence and competence. Only the pupil is represented in orange to show the school’s commitment to focus on every child and nurture him/her to the best he/she can be. A dynamic culture of learning. This culture includes a curriculum which is progressive, holistic and attuned to the changing landscape and diverse pupil needs. This culture is also enabled by committed and caring staff. This culture of learning propels the child towards excellence. A strong foundation in Values, Knowledge and Competencies.

SCHOOL SAFETY Environmental Safety Road Safety PUPIL SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY • A safe school enables a good quality of school experience which is an important factor for pupil performance and achievement • Parents will be able to drive in and alight the pupils at the foyer when they send their children to school in the morning. • Parents will only be allowed to drive into the school to pick their children after the school buses have left. Approximate waiting time is about 20 minutes after school dismissal.
  25. 25. SCHOOL SAFETY • All visitors (including parents) need to report to Security Post when entering the school. • Upon entry into school, visitors are to proceed directly to the General Office. Visitors & parents are not permitted to go to the classrooms or other areas of the school. • Parents who intend to meet teachers should make prior appointments. • If parents need to bring child home before dismissal time due to valid reasons (eg illnesses), they will need to fill in the “Early Exit Form” at the General Office. Only authorised family members above 18, domestic helpers and legal guardian will be allowed to, in order to ensure child’s safety . • Child’s absence from school must be supported with valid documents (eg Medical Certificates or Parents’ Letter) General Safety PUPIL SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
  26. 26. SCHOOL SAFETY • Toilet Pass: manage numbers of pupils going to the toilets • Permission to Enter Class slip: teachers check for the amount of time that has passed since pupils was released from General Office, to the time they reach the classroom • When lessons are conducted in a venue other than the classroom, subject teacher will write the location on white board The main idea for the above measures is to minimise the numbers of pupils/amount of time that pupils are not under the duty of care of teachers.
