In our Junior School we prepare our Reception to Year 5 students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP).
A strong sense of community is nurtured in the Junior School with an emphasis on the pastoral care of each student and the active involvement of parents at all levels.
This programme focusses on developing the whole child as an inquirer, in the classroom and the world outside. It enables students to explore their world through a series of guided inquiries that enrich the curriculum, providng them with increasing responsibility for their learning.
The PYP offers a high quality education that encourages international mindedness and a positive attitude to learning.
Educational experiences are planned with consideration of the needs, abilities and backgrounds of all students.
Our learning environments, both inside and out, are designed to stimulate and promote a love of learning, wellbeing, friendship, and community.
The PYP framework incorporates a balance between five essential elements:
The Early Learner
The PYP acknowledges the unique needs of early learners, aged 3 to 6 years. It is a distinguishing feature of the programme which recognises that learners in this age range require approaches to learning and to teaching that honor their developmental stage, and the importance of play as the vehicle for inquiry. Since experiences during the early years lay the foundation for all future learning, the PYP framework enables educators to make choices to best enable learners to flourish.
Early learning in the PYP is a holistic learning experience that integrates socio-emotional, physical and cognitive development. In the PYP classroom, it takes place in dynamic environments that promote play, discovery and exploration.
In Year 5, students are at the end of their final PYP learning journey and participate in an exhibition, culminating with the search for a solution to a problem of global significance.
