As a school, we also use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to enhance our curriculum. IPC is effective in enabling pupils to apply skills and knowledge acquired in English, Maths, Science and other curriculum areas in a purposeful and concrete way. The school has linked all topic areas to the key skills children should learn in History, Geography, DT and Art. Each topic is also linked to a parent expert and this has been pivotal in developing parental engagement and support of the school’s curriculum.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a 21st Century curriculum which extends children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in subjects by developing personal attributes and supporting an international perspective in a way that responds to the changing world around us. IPC is an internationally-minded curriculum which is used in over 60 countries.
By using IPC we are able to nurture a love of learning and encourage the necessary key skills and personal qualities; such as teamwork, research & creativity, flexibility & thoughtfulness which will help children to be become able and inspired learners. In addition to this, children will extend their knowledge and understanding of communities beyond that of our own country by exploring many aspects of other societies and ways of living.
