The IPC Personal Learning Goals underpin each unit. They are: Enquiry, Thoughtfulness, Cooperation, Respect, Communication, Adaptability, Resilience and Morality. Our personal learning goals represent the attributes that we believe children will find essential in the 21st Century. They help children to develop those qualities that will enable them to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives.
The IPC’s International Learning Goals help children begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international, global and intercultural perspective and develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’.
Each unit has embedded within it, across the different subjects, learning-focused activities that help children start developing a global awareness and gain an increasing sense of themselves, their community and the world around them, as well as inspiring positive action and engagement with global issues.
