St Olave's broad and balanced curriculum consistently leads to above age related progress for our children.

We strongly believe in quality first teaching and all teachers adapt their lessons according to each individual's needs. The curriculum is accessible by all children and encourages all children to reach their potential.

International Primary Curriculum

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject. It also develops international mindedness and encourages personal learning. Subject goals cover the knowledge, skills and understanding of children relating to the subjects they are learning. There are subject learning goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Society.  

...creating awe and wonder and excitement in our learning.

Themed units help children to see how subjects are both independent and interdependent. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects and talk about a topic from multiple perspectives. Personal goals underpin the individual qualities and dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century. There are 8 IPC Personal Goals - enquiry, resilience, morality, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into each unit of work, creating awe and wonder and excitement in our learning.
