Our school follows the English National Curriculum for England and Wales.
At IIES, in KS 1 ( Y1 and Y2) and KS 2 ( Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 ) we develop our students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. Our curriculum nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging and guiding each student to take responsibility for their learning. Our children are the future and this cannot be a harmonious one without them learning their role in promoting and understanding sustainability in an ever changing world.
The programme of learning offered incorporates local and global issues within the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. The themes include ‘who we are’, ‘where we are in place and time’ ,‘how the world works’ and how technology affects our lives.
This curriculum framework contains; knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action. Our teachers work with these five elements to construct a rigorous and challenging primary curriculum for international education that allows the students to equip themselves for a successful life, both now and in the future.
Our guiding light and motto is Learn from the past in the present to prepare for the future.
Our curriculum is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for our students. The curriculum is also transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that connect the different subject areas.
