IB Programme

Primary Years Programme


PYP is an international educational programme designed for students aged 3 to 12. Students of PYP program carry six thematic paths that allow them to acquire knowledge and skills, and understand the interdependence between them.

During the teaching and learning process the emphasis is put on providing students with possibilities to inquire on their own. The goal of the programme is to prepare students to be inquirers not only in the classroom, but also in the world outside, as well as to make them responsible for the learning process and become lifelong learners.

Students learn to think creatively and independently, develop the sense of membership and responsibility for themselves and others. They also receive support which is vital to establish their own value system which will become a basis of tolerance and open-mindedness towards internationalism of the world.

The PYP is flexible enough to provide students with a possibility to adjust it to the requirements of the national curriculum as well as to prepare students for continuing their education within the IB Middle Years Programme. In line with the standards of the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization) basic school’s tasks are:


Social development

Social development of the ward realized through these activities in mixed age groups

Support the child

Middle Years Programme


MYP is an international educational programme designed for students aged 12-16 and establishes the need for comprehensive education, intercultural awareness and student interaction with the environment. It is a natural continuum of the PYP directed to younger students.

It is based on Polish national curriculum, but methods of teaching are created and suggested by the IBO. During the programme students are obliged to take part in interdisciplinary units and lessons, make numerous investigations and pieces of work as well as experiments. They learn how to solve problems and develop their creativity and critical thinking. Thanks to clear assessment criteria students are involved in the process of learning and become responsible for the effect of their efforts.

MYP provides students with great preparations for middle school exams and a good introduction to Diploma Programme. Integrated Learning completed with an individual project in the English language is implemented in five areas:



Encouragement to learning

The student learns to create the right attitude towards knowledge, develope skills and solve scientific problems

Environment

students think about the environment in which they operate, and how to expand the environmental awareness

Community

and public service - the student learns to work for others, cooperation with broadly defined 'community'

Health

and adaptation to family life and society - the student becomes aware of the need to care about the health of him/herself and others

A human in action

Formingattitudes


IB programmes put an emphasis on personal development of students and teachers. They confirm that knowledge and skills are important, however, they are insufficient to raise a citizen of XXI century. Therefore, they suggest forming certain attitudes toward people, environment and education which enable development of a person equipped with attributes of the Learner Profile.

Assessmentpolicy

We state that assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning process. Students, teachers, parents, and administrators have to come to clear understanding in terms of reasons for assessing, what is assessed as well as the criteria for success and methods by which the assessment is made. Students and teachers are actively engaged in the assessment of the students’ progress.

    REASONS FOR ASSESSING:

  • Promoting student learning,
  • Promoting information about student learning,
  • Contributing to the evaluation of the programme,
  • Contributing to the planning process and design of learning experiences,
  • Providing teachers, students and parents with feedback.

Languagepolicy

Need for communication is instinctive, and language development is fundamental to satisfy it. The Primary School believes that learning languages is a key issue in terms of the whole learning process. Moreover, language study, including mother tongues and foreign languages, develops international mindedness, reinforces cultural identity, enhances personal growth, and promotes effective communication.

The Primary School views all teachers as teachers of language, and all parents as essential contributors to the languages learning process. We are convinced that one of the most effective ways of teaching languages is involving students in various, everyday situations. Our Primary School values differentiated and varied instruction, which integrates the skill areas of listening, speaking, presenting, viewing, reading, and writing. Students' multiple learning styles and individual development are always taken into account while gaining such skills.

Special educational needspolicy

We state that every student is in the centre of the teaching and learning process. It is believed that all students participating in the IB programmes ought to have equal access to the learning content.

The goal of implementing Special Educational Needs Policy is to organize and give psychological and pedagogical support in such a way that it is very close to the student and his/her educational and family background. It enables individualized insight into each student, their talents, interests as well as difficulties they struggle with, and first and foremost, provides them with support adequate for their needs and capabilities.
