The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.

The aim of the PYP is to create a transdisciplinary curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners in the 3-12 age range. The PYP is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curriculums. It also provides the best preparation for students to engage in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP).

The curriculum framework is based on five essential elements: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes and action. Together these elements encapsulate the traits of the IB Learner Profile and are implemented through an inquiry-based, concept-driven pedagogy. The PYP strives to develop an internationally minded person. We teach skills and lessons that are trans-disciplinary in nature and add rigor and balance to the learning experiences in the primary school.

The PYP:

  • addresses students’ academic, social and emotional well-being
  • encourages students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning
  • supports students’ efforts to gain understanding of the world and to function comfortably within it
  • helps students establish personal values as a foundation upon which international-mindedness will develop and flourish.

The PYP is organized according to:

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)

The MYP is a specially designed program developed by the International Baccalaureate organization to prepare students to be successful in the Diploma Program. The MYP focuses on students from ages 11-16 (grades 6-10) and culminates with a Personal Project. The Personal Projects demonstrate readiness to enter the Diploma Programme. The philosophical basis of the MYP fosters the traits of a responsible global citizen through the IB Learner Profile.

The MYP consists of eight subject groups, which allows for a comprehensive and balanced curriculum. Students learn through global contexts, which allows them to connect their own lives and experiences to the real world. The MYP is a conceptual based program and these ‘big ideas’ allow student be engaged and inquire within the different subject areas. Throughout the programme students develop their social, thinking, research, communication and self-management skills (called Approaches to Learning or ATL’s) in which they are essentially learning how to learn. In addition there is a Community and Service component, called Action as Service, where students extend their learning outside the classroom and can have a positive impact on the lives of others as well as the environment by taking part in service projects. At the heart of the programme is the IB Learner Profile, which consists of 10 attributes that we strive for all of our students to possess.

The MYP Students::

    • build confidence in managing their own learning
    • learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the larger world
    • consistently have greater success in IB Diploma Programme examinations
    • thrive in positive school cultures where they are engaged and motivated to excel
    • develop an understanding of global challenges and a commitment to act as responsible citizens.

MYP projects encourage students to reflect on their learning and the outcomes of their work – key skills that prepare them for success in further study, the workplace and the community.

Students who complete the MYP in Year 3 or Year 4 complete the community project. All students who complete the MYP in Year 5 complete the personal project.

The community project provides an important opportunity for students ages 13-14 to collaborate and pursue service learning. Schools register all MYP Year 5 students for external moderation of the personal project, promoting a global standard of quality.

MYP projects are student-centred and age-appropriate, and they enable students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of inquiry, action and reflection.

Successful completion of a Personal Project is a condition for acceptance to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

The MYP has three fundamental programme concepts:

A programme that is Holistic

A programme that fosters Inter-Cultural Awareness

A programme that stresses the importance of Communication

We ensure that our learning is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant. We promote global perspectives, and build awareness and foster sensitivity to the perspectives, experiences and backgrounds of others.
