screenshot128After a brilliant and energetic half term, of canoeing, kayaking, climbing, abseiling, caving and more, we made our way to Camps Hill Community Primary School in Stevenage.

Camps Hill follow the International Primary Curriculum.

“The principle of the IPC is to focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning for children worldwide, combined with innovative and exciting ways to learn.

The IPC is designed to help children:

Learn the essential knowledge, skills and understanding of a broad range of curriculum subjects.
Engage with their learning so that they remain committed to learning throughout their school careers and their lives.
Develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and to respond to the changing contexts of their future lives.
Develop a sense of their own nationality and culture at the same time as developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others.

The purpose of teaching is to help children learn. But teachers need help and support too. Teaching should be as enjoyable and rewarding for teachers as much as learning should be enjoyable and rewarding for children.

That is why the IPC has been designed with teachers as well as children in mind. Rigorous and meaningful teaching frameworks and a wide range of resources support each IPC unit of work to enable teachers to plan more effectively the work they will be doing. As a result, this allows teachers to spend more time developing creative, personalised learning for their children.

where we were joined by colleagues from a further 8 schools: Broom Barns School, Round Diamond School, Wymondly Primary School, Lodge Farm Primary School, Roebuck Primary School, Trotts Hill Primary School, Martin’s Wood Primary School and Bedwell Primary School.
