Building the Kingdom of God at St Ambrose Primary School.

Our approach to embedding Catholic Social Teaching into the Whole School Curriculum

We have developed and grown a bespoke whole school curriculum which is a curriculum that matters to our children. It is broad,  balanced and fulfils all requirements. The curriculum is underpinned by BIG Questions to raise awareness and develop critical thinkers and who become inspired to make a difference and change the world! We are growing advocates for change.

The main principle of our curriculum is the transformation of self into transformation of society.

International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

International Primary Curriculum

The school delivers the International Primary Curriculum. The school fundamentally believes that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware. As a school we define international mindedness as:

"To have an awareness of ourselves and others"


Great learning, great teaching and great fun…

The IPC is one of the fastest-growing curriculum choices in the world today, with over 1,900 schools in over 90 different countries. It is a comprehensive curriculum for 5-12 year olds, made up of over 100 exciting, engaging and globally relevant thematic units of learning, which are designed around a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for subject, personal and international learning.

Our Learning Process

The children use the IPC Learning Process in every unit across school. Our learning process provides a structure to ensure all children's learning experiences are engaging and meticulous.
