At Doxey Primary School we base our curriculum for Years 1 to 6 around the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
The aim of the IPC is to extend pupils knowledge, skills and understanding through a range of interesting themes, designed to engage children of all abilities in today's world and to enable teachers to make learning exciting, active and meaningful.
The IPC is a skills based curriculum which is split into half-termly topics, with each topic covering different subject areas such as Science, History, Geography, Art and Music.
Literacy and Maths, RE and Modern Foreign Languages are not included in the IPC schemes of work, but teachers will often take the opportunity to link work in those areas to their current IPC topic.
The units are divided into "Mileposts", in conjunction with our Key Stages; Milepost 1 refers to Years 1 and 2; Milepost 2 refers to Years 3and 4; Milepost 3 refers to Years 5 and 6. The teachers in each Milepost will work together to map a series of balanced units over a 2 year cycle. This is to guarantee that all National Curriculum areas are covered and that the children have a broad and balanced experience.
The International Primary Curriculum is used by schools in more than 92 countries around the world.
