State schools within England are required to cover the National Curriculum. This we do through the teaching of Maths, English, Religious Education (RE), Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE), Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), PE, Computing and the use of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which supports these and other curriculum areas.
For more information about the teaching of RE, go to the RE and Christian Values pages in the ‘About Us‘ menu.
International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is used at Marldon and across the United Schools Federation (USF) to support the objectives within the National Curriculum.
We aim to ensure that learning is active and engaging and above all, meaningful to children. The IPC topics cross the whole curriculum allowing children to gain an in-depth knowledge of the subjects thus preparing the children for a life in an increasingly global society. We believe that preparing the children to be future citizens of the world supports their learning in all areas and promotes the development of an environmental perspective for the future world in which they will all have an active part to play.
As an IPC school we are linked to over 1000 other schools around the world which helps to extend and develop the learning experience of the children at our school.
In addition to the IPC, the schools in the USF will enhance the curriculum with other specialist units. These are:
- A local study project – to meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum and celebrate the historical and geographical influences on the area where we live.
- Film Week – to inspire writing and creativity through film.
- Arts week – to promote creativity and cross curricula learning.
