IPC (International Primary Curriculum)


At St Blasius Primary we use the International Primary Curriculum. The IPC was originally designed and created to provide an internationally-focused curriculum for a group of 14 International schools around the world. It was introduced in 2000 and very soon other schools wanted to use the curriculum, to the point that today the IPC is now being used in over 1500 schools in 70 countries. 

The goal of the IPC is for children to focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning that they will find innovative and exciting. It has been designed to meet national curriculum guidelines. Many schools, using IPC, have had the curriculum judged as outstanding by Ofsted.

The children learn through a series of IPC units of work. Each unit of work has a theme that the children find interesting and relevant. Some subjects including English and mathematics remain discrete but the IPC approach runs through all that we do.
