International Primary Curriculum
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a specially designed curriculum for international primary schools. The teachers use this programme to develop pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide variety of subjects. Personal development and international understanding are at the heart of the curriculum. The IPC provides an impressive support system for its schools to allow the teachers to create the best possible learning environment for the pupils.
For more information please check the IPC website.
English as Another Language (EAL)
Our EAL teachers work with non-English speaking children from groups 2-8 to support their learning of English as Another Language. The children are supported by the EAL teachers in small groups and in the classroom to help them acquire the English language skills necessary to access the full curriculum.
Dutch as Another Language (DAL)
Dutch language and culture is taught in groups 2-8 to pupils who have a sufficient command of the English language. Our pupils are given as many opportunities as possible to learn as much as possible about the Dutch language and culture through trips and visits outside of school.
