The curriculum at CBSE SRM Public School, Guduvanchery is designed to enable students to develop critical skills necessary for success in the real world by incorporating experiential learning and multi-disciplinary teaching methods. The core tenet behind our curriculum at CBSE SRM Public School design is recognising the fact that learning is a dynamic process and each student learns differently. Students are encouraged in their individual area of interest while being exposed to a multitude of topics, scenarios, and situations to help them become competent and capable learners.
SRM follows guidelines set by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Each student benefits from a complementary skill set and classes in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Visual and Performing arts.
English is the medium of instruction and is taught as the first language. Tamil and Hindi are taught as a second language. German, French, Mandarin, and Sanskrit are available as third language options.
The curriculum at CBSE SRM Public School has also designed a Pre-Primary programme to foster a love for learning and discovery. The curriculum for three- to five-year-olds is based on developmental needs in all aspects of growth: social, physical, intellectual, creative, and emotional.
The Pre-Primary years combine self-directed play and unstructured activities in a specially designed environment which enables students to absorb new information through active participation, visual stimulation and listening, helping them to gain a broader understanding of the world we live in.
Using a combination of the six senses, students are provided with new experiences to help build their cognitive and physical abilities. They learn to express various emotions, understand basic social interactions, and engage with the outside world. Gaining positive self-esteem and building confidence is an important goal in the Pre-Primary years.
Our Primary and Lower Secondary curriculum provides a platform for developing basic concepts in Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. The programme has a dual objective – to introduce students to functional topics and lay the foundation for future learning as well as enable student to strengthen their emotional and social abilities and become independent, courageous, and compassionate.
There is an equal focus on building knowledge, fostering creativity and encouraging intellectual curiosity. The curriculum ensures that students acquire and build fundamental values, beliefs, and abilities which help them decode the world that we live in. All core subjects are complemented through co-curricular activities such as Art, Music, Dance, Sports, and Computer Education.
