Ensuring students are at the centre of their learning


M


aking sure that students take ownership of their learning an important priority within secondary schools and sixth forms.


However, for students at 1,859 primary schools around the world, ownership is already the norm because their schools offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP, for children aged 3 – 12 years old, uses a “whole child”


approach that nurtures and develops students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the PYP builds on students’ individual strengths, and equips them to direct their own learning and reach further to make a difference for themselves and others. It also empowers teachers to build their own curriculum, skills and qualification, supported by a network of peers and developers. The programme’s flexibility accommodates the demands of most


national or local curricular, enhances the learning and teaching that takes place in the classroom and also supports students’ transition to the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), for students aged 11 – 16 years old. Discussing the PYP, Charlotte Gregson, Primary Years Programme


Coordinator, Southbank International School, London, said: “The PYP framework is designed to nurture important qualities through its inquiry- led, transdisciplinary way of learning; ultimately, it challenges students to think for themselves about ideas that are much bigger than they are. While this might seem a lot to ask at such a young age, the age between three and 11 is probably one of the most naturally inquisitive times in a person’s life and we need to nurture that!” For more information on the PYP or other IB programmes, please visit uibo.org/programmes
