The International Primary Curriculum

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 exciting and challenging. The aim of the IPC is to help every child enjoy the learning of a wide range of subjects and to develop an enquiring mind, the personal attributes that will help throughout teenage and adult years, and to develop a sense of his or her own nationality and culture, at the same time developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Through the IPC approach to learning children develop the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to confidently face the world of tomorrow.

The IPC was introduced in 2000 and has been successfully meeting the learning needs of children for many years. It took four years with leading educational thinkers, school leaders, highly skilled teachers and curriculum writers to create the IPC. Its continued development today ensures that children are learning a current and highly relevant curriculum based on the very latest research into the brain and the increasing 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

Educational Visits

We believe that educational visits play an important role in broadening children's knowledge and understanding of the world. We offer a rich and varied range of interesting and exciting educational visits to enhance our pupils' learning across the curriculum. Trips always support educational objectives and adhere to rigorous local authority risk assessments, approved by the Headteacher and Directors of the Academy, to ensure children remain safe whilst they are outside the school environment. The Academy has two minibuses which allow us to take part in many out of school activities and undertake collaborative activities with Scawby Academy.

Recent visits have included Scunthorpe Music Festival, Hull Hands on History Ancient Egyptians Museum, Cleethorpes, Eden Camp, a performance by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Baths Hall, Lincolnshire Show and many others. We also provide 8 weeks of swimming lessons for every child from Year 2 upwards each year.
