The curriculum is ‘what’ will be taught. The Government has slimmed these requirements down to enable schools to add areas they feel children need for their development. At St Barnabas Primary School we deliver the International Primary Curriculum as part of our curriculum provision which is closely matched to the National Curriculum requirements.

We will mix a rich cross curricular approach through the IPC to make learning fun, with discrete teaching of specialist subjects such as computing, French in KS2, RE, Music and physical education.

Here at St Barnabas Primary School  we provide a creative curriculum based around the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today.

With the new National Curriculum being introduced by the Government in 2014/2015 we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. As part of this work we have decided to implement the IPC, a internationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.

The school delivers the International Primary Curriculum. The school fundamentally believes that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware. As a school we define international mindedness as “To have an awareness of ourselves and others”.

Great learning, great teaching and great fun…

It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness.
