Should you require any further information in relation to the National and IPC Curriculum our school follows, please contact: Mrs Dawn Ardern, Assistant Head of School.
The school follows the new National Curriculum objectives. Each band relates to the children's Year Group eg. Band 1 = Year 1; Band 2 = Year 2 etc. EYFS continues to follow the Early Learning Goals as shown in the Curriculum Map for EYFS.
International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
At St George’s we follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). This teaches a vibrant, thematic and creative curriculum, with specific learning goals to target spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning. Geography, History, Art, Design and Technology and Society objectives from the National Curriculum are all taught explicitly through the IPC topics. The IPC presents learning to children in a meaningful and rigorous manner, with each phase group focusing on a new, exciting and captivating theme each term. The IPC has been designed to give a stimulating, meaningful and active method to learning, adopting a global cross-curricular approach, where children connect and celebrate the cultures and perspectives of others from around the world. The IPC supports our work in promoting our Christian ethos and British values, which encourage children to develop knowledge, skills and understanding of their own identity, morality and responsibilities as young citizens locally and internationally.
Through IPC we also expect our children to:
- Become more enthusiastic and open to talk about what they are learning
- Gain good research skills
- Develop excellent collaborate skills
- Increase their ability to take risks and adapt
- Develop an understanding of the world around them
- Become mindful and respectful of different cultures and societies from around the world
- Encourage equality
