International Baccalaureate PYP

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. The PYP transdisciplinary framework focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both at school and beyond.

Informed by research into how students learn, how educators teach, and the principles and practice of effective assessment, the programme places a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. By choosing to implement the PYP, Park Magnet is part of developing students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, and focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The programme nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging every student to take responsibility for their learning.

Our Park PYP Programme - alongside all authorized PYP schools across the world -  incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. The themes include ‘who we are’, ‘where we are in place and time’ and ‘how the world works’.
