The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for focusing on total development of the child in a social, cultural, physical and emotional context. This programme is designed to develop internationally minded people within a prescribed curriculum framework of essential elements; knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action. Each of these are clearly reflected in the IB Learner Profile which provides students with a reference point to develop life-long learning skills.
The philosophy of the PYP directly affects the child and is expressed in a series of desired attributes and traits that are characteristic of learners with an international perspective. They apply to all learners and it is expected that all students participate in all aspects of the programme. Technology is also fully integrated across the curriculum and students practice, develop and explore how to enhance their learning experiences by utilising these various mediums.
