Curriculum Information


The curriculum is ‘what’ will be taught. The Government has slimmed these requirements down to enable schools to add areas they feel children need for their development. At Knowsley Lane we deliver the International Primary Curriculum as part of our curriculum provision which is closely matched to the NC requirements.

We will mix a rich cross curricular approach through the IPC to make learning fun, with discrete teaching of specialist subjects such as computing, French in KS2, RE, Music and physical education.

Here are our new curriculum maps for 2016/2017 for years 1-6 below.

International Primary Curriculum

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today.

Great learning, great teaching and great fun…

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 1,500 schools in 80 countries around the world.
