Students are categorised into two levels, according to their chronological age:
- Junior levels (7 years to 12 years)
- Senior Level (13 years to 18 years)
Three programmes are offered to students at CPASS:
1. The High Support Programme caters to students with moderate to high support needs in all areas of their daily living and learning. These students require more assistance in mobility, fine motor skills, self-help, and learning, and will pursue lessons that will promote their well-being. Upon graduation at the age of 18 years, possible post-school outcomes are the Day Activity Centre or Home Management Programme.
2. The Functional Programme caters to students with mild to moderate support needs in most areas of their daily living and learning. In the senior level, students will learn pre-vocational skills that will support their learning in the vocational domain. Students who demonstrate potential for open employment or sheltered employment, will be trained in the school’s social enterprise, MiniMart@CPAS. Upon graduation at the age of 18 years, possible post-school outcomes are transiting to a Day Activity Centre or Sheltered Workshop.
3. The Academic Programme caters to students with mild support needs in most areas of their daily living and learning. Students in this programme follow the mainstream MOE curriculum for English, Mathematics and Science only, in addition to the Curriculum Framework for SPED Schools. At the age of 9 years, students in this programme are assessed for suitability for education in mainstream primary schools before they transit there. If that is not possible, they can continue to pursue their education following the mainstream curriculum at CPASS and prepare for their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) at the age of 12 to 15 years old. Upon attaining their PSLE, students will transit to mainstream secondary schools or specialised schools. If they do not pursue secondary education, these students will continue their education at CPASS and prepare for employment in the open market or sheltered employment when they graduate at the age of 18 years.
Full Implementation of Trans-Disciplinary Approach
In 2018, a Trans-Disciplinary (Trans-D) Approach is being adopted for the three educational programmes above. The Trans-D approach aims to enhance holistic and comprehensive development in students by adopting a common view of educational needs. The approach is a consensual commitment for consistent and integrated planning & implementation. It also provides more opportunities for professional exchange of knowledge and skills between teachers and Allied Health Professionals (AHPs). Teachers share their lesson plans with AHPs on a weekly basis to obtain inputs from their technical domain.
