Student Management and Discipline
To provide the competencies and support needed by our students to meet their current developmental needs and beyond.
The Student Management and Discipline Department aims to support our students' social, emotional and mental well-being through the five key pillars, namely student leadership, discipline, counselling, learning and behavioural support, and financial assistance.
Curriculum Structure and Key Programmes
Learning and Behavioural Support
Together with MOE, GMS(P) provides financial assistance to our students so that they can benefit from the best opportunities in education. There are various financial assistance schemes available. Students may be eligible if they meet the specific criteria.
Pedagogical Approaches / Strategies
The Tiered System of Support (TSS) is a whole-school systematic framework to guide us in identifying needs, organising resources and planning support for our students.
Tier 1 is core curriculum/instruction provided to ALL students for both academic and non-academic areas. It plays a preventative function by equipping all students with a good foundation in academic and non-academic skills. For example, the explicit teaching of social emotional competencies during the Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP).
Depending on individual profiles, not all needs can be met in Tier 1. Hence, some students require additiona support.
Tier 2 aims to provide early target support provided to SOME students. Students who require additional help are provided with support in the area of need (e.g. academic, behaviour, attendance). These students may be surfaced through systematic screening, reviewing of student data and/or teacher observations. Some examples are targeted remedial lessons, learning support for P1 and P2 students, and peer support programme for selected students.
A FEW students with the highest needs may require more intensive and individualised intervention in Tier 3. For example, one-to-one academic support, counselling and individualised behaviour support plan.
