The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme – Building Upon Success.

In order to meet our educational values and vision, from Year 1 we follow the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) with its strong emphasis on the core subjects. This allows the school to provide a unique and highly relevant 21st Century curriculum.

The PYP enables St Martin's Academy to provide a unique framework for learning within which our children thrive. Outstanding primary education enables a child to build strong foundations upon which their future learning will develop. The PYP enables children to become creative thinkers and doers, structures learning sufficiently so that children can think in a multidisciplinary way and enables children to see the shades of grey. These valuable skills are what enable our learners to flourish as they continue their learning journeys and take these skills into the world of work.

The PYP ensures that our children learn in a fast-moving environment, that their basic skills in mathematics and literacy are strong and that there is no underachievement. Due to our strong focus on meeting the needs of different learning styles, all children regardless of gender have the opportunity to learn creatively; differences in gender do not inhibit progress.

Children in the 21st Century are faced with the challenge of learning about an interconnected world where knowledge is constantly developing. The PYP prepares students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. The most significant and distinctive feature of the PYP is the six transdisciplinary themes, similar to the EYFS.
