The curriculum is ‘what’ will be taught. The Government has slimmed these requirements down to enable schools to add areas they feel children need for their development. At SS Simon and Jude we deliver the International Primary Curriculum as part of our curriculum provision which is closely matched to the National Curriculum requirements.

We will mix a rich cross curricular approach through the IPC to make learning fun, with discrete teaching of specialist subjects such as computing, French in KS2, RE, Music and Physical Education.

Curriculum Newsletters for each year group give more information about what your child will be taught each term. This is in addition to the IPC Parent Newsletter we send home each term.

You can find out more information by visiting our Class Pages.

Here are our new curriculum maps for 2018/2019.

International Primary Curriculum

SS Simon and Jude delivers the International Primary Curriculum. We fundamentally believe that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware. As a school we define international mindedness as:

“To have an awareness of ourselves and others”

“Pupils’ curiosity and enthusiasm for learning is ignited by a rich relevant curriculum” – Ofsted

Great learning, great teaching and great fun…

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness. The IPC is now the curriculum choice of international and national schools in over 1,500 schools in 80 countries around the world.

Our Learning Process

The children use the IPC Learning Process in every unit across school. Our Learning Process provides a structure to ensure all children’s learning experiences are engaging and meticulous.

Our Looking for Learning Detectives in action! Pupils from Milepost 2 and 3 spent the afternoon being learning detectives in classrooms. They visited each classroom from Y1 to Y6 looking at the IPC displays. They then fed their findings back to Mrs Peacock.
