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 Primary School 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 at Knowsley Lane Primary School we provide a creative curriculum based around the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today.
With the new National Curriculum being introduced by the Government this year (2014-15) we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. As part of this work we have decided to implement the IPC, a internationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
The school delivers the International Primary Curriculum. The school fundamentally believes that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware. As a school we define international mindedness as “To have an awareness of ourselves and others”.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today.
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.

At Knowsley Lane Primary School, we have started to use Power Maths as a basis of our maths lesson. This is an exciting class mastery approach, which has been recommended by the DfE that works for every child. It is based upon the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.
Every lesson is divided into sections that involve plenty of discovery, sharing, collaboration, practice and reflection. Children are encouraged to solve problems each day through the use of concrete resources, pictorial representations and abstract thinking.
At the heart of this programme is the idea that all children can achieve and be successful mathematicians with the right growth mindset. It promotes five child friendly characters, each with their own positive skillset, to inspire and motivate children. These characters are:
