Curriculum

Our curriculum is based around the highly successful and child-centred ‘International Primary Curriculum’ (IPC), used by over 1000 state and international schools worldwide.’ We also use the National Strategies (from England and Wales) for Literacy and Numeracy and a comprehensive programme of specialist-taught subjects.

During the year, homeroom teachers will deliver a range of complimentary subjects that are linked into a themed unit of study. Over an extended period of time, usually around 5-7 weeks, a single unit of study will allow the teacher to deliver a number of learning goals drawn from the IPC.

The learning goals of the curriculum are split into four age bands covering the primary years. Within each age band there are three strands of Learning Goals: Subject Goals, Personal Goals and International Goals. Subjects include history, geography, science, art, design, Information technology (IT), Physical Education (PE), music and society. Through the units of work, links are made to the host and home countries.

Your child's teacher will inform you about which units of work the class will study during the year through an informative, regular curriculum letter. It will be clear which Learning Goals are being addressed in that unit of study. Parents will have many opportunities to be involved with their children in the IPC work.
