The International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
As discussed in the recent orientations, we are proud to announce that, alongside the UK National Curriculum, the children at El Alsson will also be following the International Primary Curriculum to help them develop into successful 21st Century Citizens.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is an internationally minded curriculum that is used in a number of countries around the world. The IPC provides opportunities for global learning – allowing pupils and staff to make links. The goal of the IPC is to nurture a love of learning through a combination of academic, personal and international learning. Children will develop many skills which they will need in order to face the world of tomorrow confidently.
To ensure that the school develops learning through this curricula, it is necessary that our teachers undergo specific training to help implement the IPC in the most effective and engaging way for our students.
The school has arranged for this training to take place on Thursday 17th – Friday 18th October 2019. This means that the children will not be required to attend school on the 17th October 2019.
We understand that this may be an inconvenience, however, in order to ensure that the teachers are fully prepared, it is necessary.
