International Primary CurriculumInternational Primary Curriculum

By adopting the IPC, Goodwyn School is part of a global learning community. The IPC is a practical tool for teachers to help children learn as this is the central purpose of everything connected with the IPC.

Whilst English and Maths are taught separately the IPC units provide opportunities for children to practice the developmental aspects of the language arts (e.g. speaking, listening, writing) as well as aspects of mathematical thinking.

The learning areas of the IPC are: Science, Geography, History, Art, IT and Society. The IPC replaces the separate teaching of the Humanities and  Art and Design.

Behind the practical components of the IPC are a number of beliefs and principles about education, teaching, learning and curriculum that direct both the contents of the IPC and the way it works.

The values that underpin the IPC are:

  • A clear focus on children’s learning
  • Shared outcomes about the kinds of children we are developing
  • Implementation of classroom practices that help children develop
  • International mindedness
  • Balance between knowledge, skills and understanding
  • Appropriately rigorous children’s learning and expectations of learning
  • Implementation of brain friendly elements
  • Implementation of themes through integrated yet separate subjects
  • Assessment that supports and informs learning.
