Our Curriculum is framed by the IB PYP. IB PYP is an international, all-subjects programme designed to foster the development of the whole child. It spans hearts and minds and encompasses pupils’ social, physical, emotional and cultural needs, in addition to their academic welfare.
Our highly creative Primary Years curriculum provides pupils with experiences that encourage a life-long love of learning. Through imaginative learning and teaching, our pupils are challenged to think outside the box, have a fearless approach to making mistakes and take their own learning in exciting new directions. Aiming high in everything we do sits at the heart of life inside our classrooms. We work with our pupils to build a strong work ethic and to set the bar high, in terms of drive and ambition. Our very well-established early literacy and numeracy programmes ensure that we set a solid foundation for this.
As pupils progress, they build up and harness a range of skills for life. Our pupils take risks with learning, build on exciting knowledge and understanding, develop outstanding communication, are discerning in their research, and present with confidence, good humour and flair. In our academy these are the cornerstones of our IB PYP curriculum and practice.
