Our Key Stage 2 students are taught the National Curriculum Programmes of Study in English and MAths with the foundation subjects and Science being taught thematically through the International Primary Curriculum.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
The IPC is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning.
The principle of the International Primary Curriculum is to focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning for children worldwide, combined with innovative and exciting ways to learn.
The IPC is designed to help children:
- Learn the essential knowledge, skills and understanding of a broad range of curriculum subjects.
- Engage with their learning so that they remain committed to learning throughout their school careers and their lives.
- Develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and to respond to the changing contexts of their future lives.
- Develop a sense of their own nationality and culture at the same time as developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others.
At Parkfield School the careful blend of IPC and Montessori will allow us to put children first and obtain outstanding results in social development and academic attainment.
