Report
By the end of this session you
will:
• Know more about the thinking behind the
IPC
• Know how an IPC is structured
• Have the chance to ask any questions you
want about why we have chosen IPC
How IPC started?
• 3 years of piloting and research began in
1998
• In collaboration with University of Bath
• Built on solid principles
• Great Learning– Great Teaching- Great
Fun
Where it is now?
Over 1754 schools, 92 countries,
International Schools, UK State Schools and
Independent Schools, State Schools in
Europe, Special Education, ESL / EAL
Schools, British Schools of America,
International Charter School AND Shell
Schools
IPC guiding questions
• What kind of world will our children live
and work in?
• What kinds of children are likely to
succeed in the world?
• What kinds of learning will our children
need and how should they learn it?
We don’t know WHAT children may need to know
by the time they leave school in this ever changing
world. We don’t know WHERE in the world they
might find work and life.
However, if we teach them to have the skills and
attributes to deal with whatever challenges the
world presents them with, then we have succeeded
in producing capable citizens. While the IPC of
course teaches knowledge, it has an equal focus on
skills and understanding – and on personal qualities.

What Schools Are Saying about
International Primary Curriculum?
“The curriculum is outstanding.
“Pupils' learning and enjoyment
are supported by the exciting,
internationally-themed
curriculum that the school
provides. Leaders are already
planning how the many
strengths in this provision can
be sustained when a new
National Curriculum is
introduced next year.”
OFTSED Report 2013
Moseley C of E Primary School,
Birmingham
The learning experiences it
provides are matched
exceptionally well to pupils'
abilities and needs. Topics
taught across a range of
subjects, such as learning
about volcanoes, arouse great
enthusiasm among pupils. The
organisation of the curriculum
enables teachers to build very
effectively on pupils' previous
learning.”

Primary in Suffolk
What Schools Are Saying about International
Primary Curriculum?
“The IPC enables us to teach subjects in context, so that children can see the purpose of
what they're learning. It's constantly making links between subject learning and for us that's
and for us that's been one of the successes”
Vivian Onwubalili, Headteacher, Stepney Green Coat Primary School, Tower Hamlets, London
Hamlets, London
“The IPC is worth every penny for what it's doing is making every child want to learn more. Its
cross-curricular approach means that subjects are embedded within each unit. No longer are we
stopping one lesson to move onto another that's completely unrelated. Now it's all about building
on a theme and, as a result, the children become completely engaged ”
