IB PRIMARY YEAR PROGRAMME

Gateway  International school is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB (PYP) World School.

 

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12.

 

It prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.

 

The PYP is designed to be responsive to young children’s ways of knowing. It provides schools with a thoughtfully designed way to give 3-to-5 year olds stimulating, supportive interactions with their teachers and the effective use of curricula.

 

The curriculum is transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas.

 

The PYP is organized according to:

  • The written curriculum, which explains what PYP students will learn
  • The taught curriculum, which sets out how educators teach the PYP
  • The assessed curriculum, which details the principles and practice of effective assessment in the PYP

 

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
