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 St. Augustine’s CE Primary School we deliver the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) as part of our curriculum provision which is closely matched to the National Curriculum requirements.
We will mix a rich cross curricular approach through the IPC to make learning fun, with discrete teaching of specialist subjects such as PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education), computing, music, a language in KS2, RE, Music and physical education. For more information about our school curriculum please call the school office 0161 505 1317 to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Murphy – Principal.

Here at St Augustine’s C of E 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.
The revised National Curriculum was introduced by the Government back in 2014-15. Since then we have worked hard and refreshed our school approach and provision for pupils. As part of this work we 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:
At St Augustine’s we support the teaching and learning of the fundamental British Values. We do that through a week of activities celebrating British Values. We have 3 weeks in the school year that look at the 5 British Values and look at a range of topics that support this. To see our British Values overview please click below.
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.
