International Primary Curriculum (IPC) - Long term Plan 2017-18

The International Primary Curriculum

 

Why the IPC?

At Denbigh Primary School, we are part of a learning community of schools across the world which uses IPC as their planned curriculum. Children’s learning is the central purpose of everything connected with the IPC. Children’s learning will respond to their current and future personal needs, their future career needs and the needs of the varied societies and cultural groups in which they are likely to play a part. The National Curriculum and EYFS curriculum requirements have been linked closely to the IPC units to ensure that we are fulfilling and exceeding national expectations.


This unique curriculum has a strong element of internationalism built into learning. By adopting the IPC, we are central to a learning global community. The elements of the International Dimension encourage our children to:-

 

  • Recognise their own culture and have a sense of identity
  • Be open-minded
  • Be respectful of other cultures and beliefs (be sensitive to other cultures and beliefs)
  • Be aware of and be able to celebrate diversity AND commonality
  • Have respect for and value other people and their ideas and opinions
  • Be able to communicate (have good interpersonal skills)
  • Be adaptable
  • Be aware of and have an interest in global issue
