The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject, international mindedness and for personal learning. 

All curriculum subjects are independent yet interdependent. IPC is all about making meaningful connections within and between these subjects through themed units of learning that tie them all together.

Each Unit follows the same process that facilitates learning:

The Entry Point: a hook to motivate the learning, spark interest and inspire.

The Knowledge Harvest: Finds out what the students already know, informs planning and is a working document of learning. 

Explaining the theme: Gives students the ‘big picture’ of their learning. It is shared with parents at the start of a unit to help support the learning at home.

Research, Recording and Reflecting: Learning activities of Knowledge, Skills and Understanding that focus on the Subject Learning Goals.

The Exit Point: Summarises the learning from the unit and ties it together. It celebrates the learning that has taken place.

There are three types of Learning Goals in the IPC: The IPC Subject Learning Goals are the foundation on which the IPC was built. The learning goals cover the knowledge, skills and the understandings that children will develop. Each are distinct forms in their own right but interconnect and come together to form the larger whole of Learning. Knowledge is What students know (what, when, who, where, which). Skills are What students can do (what, how). Understanding is What students can explain (how and why).

There are eight identified attributes (IPC Personal Learning Goals) that should be fostered and nurtured in all children and the development of each of them leads to improving learning. We call these our Personal Values and we all aim to be: Resilient, Thoughtful, Ethical, Empathetic, Collaborative, Communicative, Adaptable and Respectful.

The IPC’s International Learning Goals help our students begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international, global and intercultural perspective and develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’.

We define International Mindedness as a ‘Ripples Mindset’ that develops an understanding of the Self and the world around it; embraces similarities and differences in ever increasing circles; respects other perspectives; expanding awareness beyond ourselves; Producing global citizens that contribute positively to the world.
