Above is a series of Cambridge English Study Course Books for grade 6,7 & 8 adopted by some of Sri Lanka’s International Schools. [Note the image of a turning page with a chic label “Completely Cambridge”]
However above course books are designed for the seamless progress into the next key stage of Cambridge IGCSE First Language English [International General Certificate of Secondary Education] & not precisely for the Cambridge OL courses conducted in most of the International Schools in Sri Lanka. However, these wouldn’t do any harm. On the contrary, these course books would assist our cause to a great extent.
Indeed there are differences between Cambridge IGCSE & Cambridge O Level

Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge O Level are equivalent qualifications grade for grade.Cambridge O Level offers fewer coursework options than Cambridge IGCSE.The focus of Cambridge O Level languages is on writing and reading skills.

(These constraints are advantageous to some teaching Centres where resources are limited, for example no oral examiner is available.

Following is another series of Cambridge  Study Course Books adopted by some other International Schools of Sri Lanka.[As being revealed by the Peeping Tom eye-catching label “Completely Cambridge”]

Cambridge Global English Stages 7 and 8 follow the Cambridge Secondary 1 English as a Second Language curriculum framework. Cambridge Global English course has been developed to provide comprehensive support for learners of English as a Second Language at Secondary 1 level. The series takes an active, creative, ‘learning to learn’ approach that encourages clear and fuent communication in English. Stages 7 and 8 lay the foundations for learners who may choose to prepare for Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language.

Cambridge Global English titles have not gone through the Cambridge endorsement process, as they follow the curriculum framework developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment.

education. cambridge.org

Emphasis is placed on developing
[a] Macro-skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing skills
[b] Vocabulary development and language awareness.

Special Features:
[a] Collaborative learning is encouraged through group activities and project work.
[b] Learners are exposed to a range of vocabulary with opportunities for using language in
personalised, meaningful ways
[c] developing the English language skills they will need to access classroom materials
across other subjects.

Not Cambridge
The series of Nelson English study course books aren’t endorsed “Completely Cambridge”. Nelson English series doesn’t carry  the label “Endorsed by Cambridge” either. But the Nelson books are delightful: learners enjoy fiction as well as non-fiction therein. Teachers with a literary bent, who love to narrate stories, with Nelson books in hand, hold the whole class enthralled. For this reason alone, I have no hesitation in forgiving the International Schools, which still carry on with Nelson series. And remember, English isn’t owned by Cambridge. It’s all yours, if you can handle a hot stuff. I’ll come back another day and tell you why I say English Language is oven-fresh forever. bunpeiris

[*2] Common European Framework of Reference [CEFR]

The Common European Framework (CEF)

The Common European Framework (CEF) What is the Common European Framework? (CEF) Since the early 1970s, a series of Council of Europe initiatives has developed a description of the language knowledge and skills that people need to live, work and survive in any European country. Waystage 19901 , Threshold 19902 and Vantage3 detail the knowledge and skills required at different levels of ability. In 2001, the contents of these documents were further developed into sets of ‘can do’ statements or ‘competences’ and officially launched as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment (CEF)4.  www.cambridge.org
