The Curriculum

Curriculum Maps

At The Academy at St. James we teach the National Curriculum, (2014 EYFS and KS1 / KS2) through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).


The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum for 3-12 year olds, with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning.

The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries. The IPC is used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world.

We hope these plans will be helpful in giving you information about the topics and areas of the curriculum your child will be covering.  If you need any further information please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher they are always willing to help you help your child with their learning.

Please look under the ‘Classes’ section of the website for each Year Groups’ Autumn  Term Curriculum Plans.
