International Learning (IPC)

Our school follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Through the IPC we focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning, that develops an appreciation of human creativity and development. We want children to use their learning as inspiration for their own creative journeys. We want children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, gain essential knowledge and develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens of the world. By introducing children to the best that has been thought and said across the world and through history, they will develop a sense of self and begin to form their own great thoughts and deeds. They will have a strong grounding in their own nationality and culture, at the same time developing a profound understanding and respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Most of all, we want children to develop all the skills they will need in order to confidently thrive in the world of tomorrow.

Your interest in your child’s education is greatly valued and we will ensure that you are kept well informed about the work done in school. Newsletters are sent home weekly and at the beginning of each term class teachers send an outline of the work they intend to cover during the term. Please make sure that you check your child’s bag for this information! A copy of the newsletters is always posted on the playground notice board and in the main entrance by the school office.
