International Primary Curriculum
Similar to the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP), the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a transformative experience for students, teachers, and whole school communities. Students learn how to take control of their learning; teachers collaborate to deepen student- learning and increase their confidence and self-motivation. The whole school community, including parents, are viewed as partners in learning cycle.
IPC lays out a clear process of learning and specific goals for every subject. It aims to develop international mindedness and encourages personal learning through the development of eight personal goals: thinker, adaptable, resilient, collaborator, communicator, respectful, empathetic, ethical.
IPC personal goals are built into the learning tasks within each unit with the aim that, through the development of these qualities, children grow more comfortable in the ever changing context of life.
Why we use IPC:
- IPC is flexible and can be adapted to children’s interests and level of understanding
- It links learning of difficult subjects in a creative and engaging way
- IPC helps engage children with learning and makes learning meaningful
- It Introduces children to self-assessment to help them understand their level of skills and knowledge
- IPC encourages collaboration and reflection
International Early Years Curriculum
Recognizing best practices in early childhood education, the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) is a research-based curriculum geared towards the developmental needs of children 2-5 years old. It supports learning through enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
