Character Citizenship Education


Each child a caring individual, a concerned citizen with a deep sense of national identity



To nurture every child with 21st CC skills through a student centric and holistic values based education
Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Framework
CCE Framework
In Pioneer Primary School, the CCE Framework guides the planning and implementation of the CCE Programmes.

Level 1: Our school core values- A (An Inquiring and Imaginative Mind), V (Value Self and Others), I (Integrity) and D(Doing our Best). Level 1 is the foundation of every student in PPS. All PPS students must be rooted in values and uphold our school core values. 

Level 2: The 21stCC skills in every child are nurtured through the Social and Emotional Learning(SEL) competencies. These are skills necessary for students to recognise and manage their emotions, develop care and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, as well as handle challenging situations effectively.

Level 3: The Desired Outcomes of Education (DOE)are attributes that educators aspire for every Singaporean to possess upon the completion of his formal education. At the end of our students’ journey in PPS, we hope to develop our students to be a confident person, a self-directed leaner, a concerned citizen and an active contributor.

Roof: Stakeholders

The active engagement of the school leaders, staff, parents and community partners supports the whole process. Therefore, they form the roof to the framework as our stakeholders will always be supporting us to bring out the best in our students.

Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Programmes

The CCE department runs its programmes on 5 platforms- level-based, whole-school customised professional development and parent partnership. CCE programmes look into the different areas of students’ developmental needs.

Pastoral Care and Guidance

PPS takes a strong pastoral care approach emphasizing the character traits and expected behaviors, through the formal curriculum such as Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP), CCE lessons,values and SEL instruction where students learn to reflect on and analyze their own behaviors; and these behaviors are reinforced through broad character development approaches.

CCE Curriculum

CCE Lessons

CCE lessons focus on the teaching of Values, Knowledge and Skills for Character and Citizenship. At the primary level, CCE lessons are taught in the three official mother tongue languages,namely, Malay, Chinese and Tamil. Students learn about their cultural traditions and values which are best transmitted through the mother tongue languages. For international students, their lessons will be taught in English Language.

CCE Modules


A one stop Education and Career Guidance (ECG) portal that supports students in making education and career decisions across each education stage; and empowers them for life-long learning.

MySkillsFuture portal is designed for individuals from Primary 5 through adulthood.For students from Primary 5 to Pre-University, the portal is designed to help them discover their interests and strengths, and guide their education and career development at every stage of their education journey.

Sexuality Education (SEd)

Sexuality Education (SEd) in schools is about enabling students to understand the physiological, social and emotional changes they experience as they mature, develop healthy and rewarding relationships including those with members of the opposite sex, and make wise,informed and responsible decisions on sexuality matters in their growing up years.  It is taught in the context of values which our mainstream society believes in – the importance of the family as the basic unit of society,encouraging healthy, heterosexual marriages, and respect for the values and beliefs of the different ethnic and religious communities on sexuality issues. 

CCE Experiences

These programmes provide students with experiential learning opportunities to develop character, competence and commitment as responsible citizens and future leaders, and nurture the spirit of voluntarism.
