International Primary Curriculum

Newton College launches the The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) in the School Year 2015/2016. The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is used in schools all over the world. Currently, this includes nearly 1,800 national and international schools in over 90 countries.

Learning with the International Primary Curriculum means that children focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning that is both exciting and challenging. The aim of the IPC is to help every child enjoy learning a wide range of subjects, and to develop an inquisitive mind. These are personal attributes that will help them throughout their teenage and adult years, developing a sense of their own nationality and culture, whilst developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Through the IPC approach to learning, our children develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to confidently face the future with confidence.

The IPC was introduced in 2000 and has been successfully meeting the learning needs of children for many years. It took four years of development with educational thinkers, school leaders, highly skilled teachers and curriculum writers to create the IPC. Its continued development ensures that children are learning an updated and highly relevant curriculum based on the very latest neurological research, with an increased understanding of how children learn.
The IPC is a part of Fieldwork Education, which, since 1984, has been helping schools all around the world to develop children’s’ learning. For more information about the IPC visit www.greatlearning.com/ipc
