The school started operating last year after the covid-19 lockdown was uplifted, and this was the inaugural year of having candidates sit for the Primary Leaving Exam (PLE), a national assessment that determines the pupil’s next step towards secondary education in the country.

“Being our pioneer year, we strategically planned for this class,” Mr Simon Mugaaju, the headteacher of Kampala Standard Primary School said shortly after receiving the PLE results.

“We deployed competent staff who managed the pupils and we constantly screened all levels of content delivery from the word go,” he added.

According to Mr Mugaaju, the school employed strategic programmes that help them to spot individuals child challenges.

“Also being that our numbers are manageable, as one of the strategic plans by management, there’s intensive close supervision that is attached to learning. It also gives priority to individualistic learning where each child participates as much as possible in the class instructions.”

Besides academics, Kampala Standard Primary School extends special programs for children in collaboration with UK and USA-based schools and organisations, the programs include exchange visits between UK, USA and Ugandan teachers and pupils.
