We believe that Pupils’ curiosity and enthusiasm for learning is ignited by a rich and relevant curriculum.

About the IPC

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 Hill Top Primary Academy we deliver the International Primary Curriculum as part of our curriculum provision which is closely matched to the National Curriculum requirements.

Why Choose the IPC?

  • The IPC is flexible and can be adapted to children's interests and level of understanding
  • It can be integrated with other curriculum to ensure you're meeting statutory requirements, in a creative and engaging way
  • It offers simple but structured curriculum focussed around subject, personal and international learning goals
  • With the IPC you're part of an international community of schools, teachers and learners with access to an online space for information sharing
  • IPC helps engage parents with learning, and to understand the relevance of learning in the classroom and at home
  • Assessment is done by teachers and children to help engage them with learning, and understand their level of skills and knowledge
  • The IPC encourages collaboration and reflection not just between teachers and pupils, but amongst teachers within the school and worldwide

The Process of the IPC

The units of work provide practical activities which teachers can use in the classroom plus a wealth of other supportive information. Each unit is structured to make sure that children's learning experiences are as stimulating as possible.

All the units follow the same process of learning as described below.

You can find out what your children are learning by visiting our class pages.

As a school we define international mindedness as:

“We are all valuable citizens making a positive contribution to the world''
