The curriculum used at PPiP is The International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
Welcome to the IPC
The IPC is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness. The IPC is now the curriculum choice of international and national schools in over 1,800 schools in over 90 countries around the world.
What is the IPC
The IPC is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum for 3-12 year olds, with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning. The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries. The IPC is used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world.
At the very heart of the IPC is a clarity about what children should learn. There are learning goals, or standards, for all of the subjects of the primary curriculum. There are learning goals for children’s personal development, and, uniquely, there are learning goals for the development of children’s international mindedness and international learning. The IPC provides learning goals for every subject of the primary curriculum, and are defined for each age phase: Milepost 1 (ages 5-7 years), Milepost 2 (ages 7-9 years) and Milepost 3 (ages 9-12 years).
There is a distinct learning process with every IPC unit, providing a structured approach to make sure that children’s learning experiences are as stimulating and rigorous as possible.
