Ravenhurst follows the International Primary Curriculum developed by Fieldwork Education.

What is the International Primary Curriculum (IPC)?

The IPC is a comprehensive, creative and exciting curriculum for Primary schools. It is currently used by over 1800 schools in more than 90 countries around the world. It 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 beyond.
  • Develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens in an ever-changing world.
  • 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.

What does the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) cover?

The IPC covers the following national curriculum subjects:

  • History
  • Art
  • Geography
  • Science
  • Music
  • Design & Technology

Subjects are linked together within Units (topics) but taught discretely. Units begin with an activity as an ‘entry point’ to engage the pupils and capture their imagination.

The IPC is split into 3 phases which cover:

  • Years 1 & 2
  • Years 3 & 4
  • Years 5 & 6
