ISSPT has actively developed a curriculum that we hope not only inspires but excites our students.
Whilst we hold true to the overarching principles of the PYP Curriculum which provide a framework for our key teaching and learning intentions, we firmly believe that equipping our young 21st century learners with the relevant skills and knowledge to help them move forward into the unknown is our primary duty as teachers, promoting student agency, giving them voice, choice, and responsibility for their learning. We have a duty of care to ensure children begin to develop a sense of respect, responsibility and purpose through spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness, enabling them to thrive and flourish whatever life throws at them.
