Research points overwhelmingly to the fact that investment in a child’s early years of education is crucial for their successful development later in life. The role of Primary Education is to determine the broad-based development of young girls and boys. This means ensuring they are able to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical skills to the best of their abilities, preparing them for their future career.
Attending a good quality, academically effective primary school, research indicates, has more impact on young children’s academic progress than their gender or family background and investment in the early years of education does reap long term benefits. In fact, primary education is the crucial and critical stage for academic, emotional and social performance for life.
During their Primary education, pupils are taught to think critically, to strive to attain high standard, to meet the challenges posed by technological advancement, and to develop social skills, citizenship and basic values. Quality education in Primary School is therefore pivotal to the success of the student’s future school career.
