We are delighted to introduce the IPC to Park Lane School in September 2015. The IPC has been created by a group of leading experts in children’s learning from around the world.
We want children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and develop all the skills they will need in order to succeed in life.
Children from the Foundation Phase to Key Stage 4 will learn through a series of IPC units of work. Each unit of work has a theme that today’s children find interesting and relevant. Examples include Rainforest, Mission to Mars and Beyond and Fit for Life. Linking subjects means that children can make lots of connections with their learning. We now know that the more connections that the brain can make, the better a child can learn.
The IPC focuses on a skills-based approach, developing adaptable and resilient globally-minded learners, prepared for the fast-changing world that they’ll be living and working in.
The IPC has been designed for children of all abilities and all learning styles, and encourages learning in groups as well as individual learning.
In order that parents and carers know what their child is learning, they are sent a letter at the beginning of each IPC unit which outlines what learning will be covered and how parents can help continue that learning at home if they choose.
