The curriculum

 

In our curriculum, we aim to ensure that the subject matter as far as possible reflects topical events and issues in society. We aim for children to have a thorough knowledge base and skills, be able to use it flexibly and to continually develop further. Of course, we also want children to enjoy their learning.

International Primary Curriculum
Based on our vision and goals (qualification, socialisation and character building), Interteach has opted to use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The IPC is a modern curriculum for primary education that focuses on investigative learning and enabling children to deal with the complexities of the 21st century. For the very youngest children, age from four to six, the IEYC (International Early Years Curriculum) method is used, the precursor to IPC. Both methods are continually being developed in line with the latest state of the art. What makes Interteach unique is the fact that the global awareness subjects are taught in English and suitable excursions are organised. There is also plenty of focus on computational thinking, in which learning to program is an essential component.

Citizenship education
We focus attention on global citizenship and intercultural skills, in which children learn how they can contribute to sustainability, democracy, human rights and peace, the UNESCO global citizenship targets.

Sport, art and culture
In addition to the IPC curriculum, we offer a full range of options in the field of sport, art and culture. We enable children to become acquainted with surprising materials and technologies, offering them every opportunity to develop their talents. To make this possible, we work closely with specialist teachers and external partners.

Collaboration with external partners
We believe that a school must not be isolated from society. For this reason, we collaborate with external partners, a process in which ‘the sum is greater than the parts’. This has one central shared goal, to which everyone makes a contribution: delivering outstanding education. The collaboration with external partners links together learning inside and outside school and formal and playful informal learning naturally overlap while the quality of all educational processes is monitored. With our external partners, we coordinate how this can best be achieved.
