Learning at Southgate Primary

The International Primary Curriculum

  • From October 2017, Southgate will be introducing a new thematic curriculum called the IPC. (International Primary Curriculum)

  • The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum for 5-12 year olds, with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning.

  • It covers the English National Curriculum incorporating a global dimension with an international focus.

  • The International Primary Curriculum is taught in over 90 countries and over 500 UK state schools and academies.

  • The IPC aims to prepare children for a portfolio of jobs and provides a stable experience for Life-long learning opportunities.

  • In every class we will be explicitly teaching thinking and enquiry skills.

  • Art
  • Geography
  • History
  • ICT
  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • PE
  • Technology
  • Mucic
  • Society
  • International

The IPC units are organised around a theme, which helps children to see how subjects are both ‘independent’ and ‘interdependent’ enabling them to see ‘the big picture’ of their learning, make connections through and across different subjects, and talk about a theme from multiple perspectives.

‘The Learning Goals are the foundation on which the International Primary Curriculum is built.’

At the very heart of the IPC is clarity about what children should learn. There are learning goals, or standards, for all of the subjects of the primary curriculum.

There are learning goals for children’s personal development, and, uniquely, there are learning goals for the development of children’s international mindedness and international learning.

The IPC provides learning goals for every subject of the primary curriculum, and are defined for each age phase:

Milepost 1 (ages 5-7 years)

Milepost 2 (ages 7-9 years) 

Milepost 3 (ages 9-12 years)
