1 The IB Primary Years Programme Education for a better world

2 The Primary Years Programme: preparing students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning What is an IB education? The IB continuum of international education for 3 to 19 year olds is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. We challenge students to excel in their studies and in their personal growth. We aim to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students with character who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations. The IB offers high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision. Informed by the values described in the learner profile, an IB education: focuses on learners - the IB s student-centred programmes promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge develops effective approaches to teaching and learning - IB programmes help students to develop the attitudes and skills they need for both academic and personal success works within global contexts - IB programmes increase understanding of languages and cultures, and explore globally significant ideas and issues explores significant content - IB programmes offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced, conceptual and connected. IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success. What is the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)? The PYP is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subjects areas, as well as transdisplinary skills, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry. The PYP is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curriculums and provides the best preparation for students to engage in the IB Middle Years Programme. The IB Primary Years Programme addresses students academic, social and emotional well-being encourages students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning supports students efforts to gain understanding of the world and to function comfortably within it helps students establish personal values as a foundation upon which international-mindedness will develop and flourish. The six subject areas identified within the IB Primary Years Programme: language social studies mathematics arts science personal, social and physical education The most significant and distinctive feature of the IB Primary Years Programme are the six transdisplinary themes These themes provide IB World Schools with the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum and effectively allow students to step up beyond the confines of learning within subject areas. Who we are Inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; person, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities, and cultures; rights and responsibilities; what it means to be human Where we are in place and time Inquiry into orientation in place and time; personal histories; homes and journeys; the discoveries, explorations and migrations of humankind; the relationship between and the interconnectedness of individuals and civilizations, from local and global perspectives How we express ourselves Inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic How the world works Inquiry into the natural world and its laws, the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies; how humans use their understanding of scientific principles; the impact of scientific and technological advances on society and on the environment.

3 How we organize ourselves Inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment Sharing the planet Inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and other living things; communities and the relationship within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution. Each theme is addressed each year by all students. (Students aged 3 to 5 engage with four of the themes each year.) In addition all PYP students have the opportunity to learn more than one language from the age of seven. These transdisciplinary themes help teachers to develop a programme of inquiries investigations into important ideas, identified by the schools, and requiring a high level of involvement on the part of the students. These inquiries are substantial, in-depth and usually last for several weeks. Since these ideas relate to the world beyond the school, students see their relevance and connect with it in an engaging and challenging way. Students who learn in this way begin to reflect on their roles and responsibilities as learners and become actively involved with their education. All students will come to realize that a unit of inquiry involves them in in-depth exploration of an important idea, and that the teacher will collect evidence of how well they understand that idea. They will expect to be able to work in a variety of ways, on their own and in groups, to allow them to learn to their best advantage. The recognition of Seneca Academy as an IB World School delivering the Primary Years Programme, makes me extremely proud of our teachers, staff and parents who have dedicated themselves to helping our students become lifelong learners. By creating an environment where students make connections between what they are learning in the classroom and the world around them, we are creating global citizens who will be well prepared to take leading roles in the world. Head of School, Dr. Brooke Carroll, Seneca Academy, USA

4 The Exhibition The Exhibition is an important part of the PYP for all students. In the final year of the programme, students undertake a collaborative, transdisciplinary inquiry process that involves them in identifying, investigating and offering solutions to real-life issues or problems. As the culminating experience of the PYP, the Exhibition offers students an exciting opportunity to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning. Quality assurance and professional development Any school, or group of schools, wishing to offer one or more IB programmes as an IB World School must first be authorized. The requirements are the same for all schools, and the procedure is designed to ensure that schools are well prepared to implement the programme successfully. All IB World Schools are required to participate in an ongoing process of review and development, using the same programme standards and practices. The IB Mission The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. As part of its ongoing commitment to the development of a highly skilled global learning community, the IB provides a wide range of high-quality professional development opportunities to help new, experienced and expert school leaders and educators understand, support, and successfully deliver IB programmes reflecting IB standards and practices.

5 The IB Middle Years Programme Education for a better world

6 The Middle Years Programme: preparing students to be successful in school and to be active, lifelong learners What is an International Baccalaureate (IB) education? The IB continuum of international education, for students aged 3 to 19, is unique because of its academic and personal rigour, challenging students to excel in their studies and personal growth. The IB aims to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students, who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations. The IB offers high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision. An IB education: focuses on learners the IB s student-centred programmes promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge develops effective approaches to teaching and learning IB Programmes help students to develop the attitudes and skills they need for both academic and personal success works within global contexts IB programmes increase understanding of languages and cultures, and explore globally significant ideas and issues explores significant content IB programmes offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced, conceptual and connected. Informed by values described in the learner profile, IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success. What is the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)? The MYP is designed for students aged 11 to 16. It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders. The MYP is flexible enough to accommodate most national or local curriculum requirements. It builds upon the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). The IB Middle Years Programme: addresses holistically students intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being provides students opportunities to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need in order to manage complexity and take responsible action for the future ensures breadth and depth of understanding through study in eight subject groups requires the study of at least two languages (language of instruction and additional language of choice) to support students in understanding their own cultures and those of others empowers students to participate in service within the community helps to prepare students for further education, the workplace and a lifetime of learning. The curriculum The MYP consists of eight subject groups: language acquisition, language and literature, individuals and societies, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical and health education, and design. Student study is supported by a minimum of 50 hours of instruction per subject group in each academic year. In years 4 and 5, students have the option to take courses from six of the eight subject groups, which provides greater flexibility. The MYP: a unique approach, relevant for a global society The MYP aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community. MYP teachers organize the curriculum with appropriate attention to: Teaching and learning in context. Students learn best when their learning experiences have context and are connected to their lives and the world that they have experienced. Using global contexts, MYP students explore human identity, global challenges and what it means to be internationally minded. Conceptual understanding. Concepts are big ideas that have relevance within specific disciplines and across subject areas. MYP students use concepts as a vehicle to inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance and examine knowledge holistically.

7 Approaches to learning (ATL). A unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups, approaches to learning provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage the application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar contexts. Developing and applying these skills help students learn how to learn. Service as action (community service). Action (learning by doing and experiencing) and service have always been shared values of the IB community. Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. IB learners strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service making a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment. Service as action is an integral part of the programme, especially in the MYP community project. Language and identity MYP students are required to learn at least two languages. Learning to communicate in a variety of ways is fundamental to their development of intercultural understanding and crucial to their identity affirmation. MYP projects MYP projects provide students the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in the MYP. In schools that include MYP years 5, all students must complete the personal project. In programmes that include MYP years 4 or 5, schools may offer students the opportunity to do both the community project and the personal project. In schools that include MYP year 3 or 4, students must complete the community project. The community project encourages students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. Students may complete the community project individually or in small groups. Each student develops a personal project independently, producing a truly personal and creative piece of work that stands as a summative review of their ability to conduct independent work.

8 Assessment in the MYP: rigorous criteria, applied consistently worldwide MYP assessment standards are consistent around the world. In order to maintain the rigour for which the IB is renowned, the MYP assessment model is criterion-related. Teachers structure varied and valid assessment tasks so that students can demonstrate achievement according to objectives defined by the IB. Tasks are assessed against established criteria, not against the work of other students. A good curriculum develops a range of student skills. The MYP encourages teachers to assess this acquired skill set, including how to succeed in written examinations. Typical MYP assessment tasks include open-ended, problem-solving activities and investigations, organized debates, tests and examinations, hands-on experimentation, analysis and reflection. MYP assessment is carried out by teachers, according to the criteria defined by the IB. International standards for assessment: moderation and monitoring (through 2015) All schools are responsible for developing appropriate assessments for their students according to published MYP objectives and criteria. IB World Schools offering the MYP participate in either moderation or monitoring of assessment. The IB reviews and provides feedback on each school s internally-developed assessments, highlighting areas in which the school is performing well, along with areas for improvement. External moderation validates final grades for records of achievement and can lead to the awarding of MYP certificates. For moderation, schools submit samples of assessed students work from each of the MYP subject areas (along with the personal project) from the final year of the programme to independent external moderators appointed by the IB. Through this process, the IB ensures that schools and teachers are using international MYP standards in assessing their students. Monitoring of assessment provides support and guidance to schools with regards to internal assessment procedures and practices. Schools benefit from the expertise of trained moderators and experienced MYP subject specialists. Monitoring of assessment helps schools apply MYP assessment principles to their own local practices. (Monitoring of assessment is not linked to validation of student grades.) MYP assessment from 2016 Along with the introduction of mandatory moderation of the personal project, 2016 sees a change in the optional external assessment for the MYP. The new optional MYP eassessment provides external evaluation for students in MYP year 5 (15 16 years old) that leads to the internationally recognized IB MYP certificate. MYP eassessment represents a balanced, appropriatelychallenging model that comprises examinations and coursework. Two-hour onscreen examinations in four subject groups (language and literature, sciences, mathematics, individuals and societies) and interdisciplinary learning are externally marked by IB examiners, as is a portfolio of student work for courses in language acquisition. Students also submit an eportfolio of coursework for a performance-oriented subject group (physical and health education, arts, and design), which is moderated to international standards. These innovative assessments focus on conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar situations. They offer robust and reliable assessment of student achievement in the MYP. IB quality assurance Any school, or group of schools, wishing to offer one or more IB programme must first be authorized to do so by the IB organization. The requirements are the same for all schools, and the procedure is designed to ensure that schools are well-prepared to implement the programme(s) successfully. All IB World Schools are required to participate in an ongoing process of review and development, using the same programme standards and practices. Services and support for schools As part of its ongoing commitment to the development of a highly skilled global learning community, the IB provides a wide range of high-quality professional development opportunities to help new and experienced school leaders and educators understand, support and successfully deliver IB Programmes. To further support professional development, IB educator certificates and IB leadership certificates are offered for completing an IB recognized course of study offered by a network of higher education institutions. School leaders and educators can also serve as IB workshop leaders, school visitors, consultants, examiners, moderators or curriculum developers. Other ways to participate in the IB community include sharing good practices in the online IB Journal of Teaching Practice and through blogs and other social media networks. Other IB services include: access to curriculum materials and related publications, marketing support, networking opportunities, and assistance with university and government recognition.

9 The MYP has transformed our approach to teaching and learning. It allows our teachers to teach courses which are genuinely stimulating, and focused on the expectations and aspirations of our students, and it allows our students to engage with a curriculum which is rigorous, imaginative and interdisciplinary. It is the best middle school programme available in the world and I would urge all schools who are academically ambitious for their staff and students to introduce it as soon as they can. In doing so, not only will they best prepare students for further education, but also provide them with that unique, rounded perspective of ourselves and the world around us that IB students can have. The IB mission The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

10 The IB Diploma Programme Education for a better world

11 The Diploma Programme: preparing students for success in higher education and to be active participants in a global society What is an IB education? The IB continuum of international education for 3 to 19 year olds is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. We challenge students to excel in their studies and in their personal growth. We aim to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students with character who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations. The IB offers high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision. Informed by the values described in the learner profile, an IB education: focuses on learners - the IB s student-centred programmes promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge develops effective approaches to teaching and learning - IB programmes help students to develop the attitudes and skills they need for both academic and personal success works within global contexts - IB programmes increase understanding of languages and cultures, and explore globally significant ideas and issues explores significant content - IB programmes offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced, conceptual and connected. IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success. What is the IB Diploma Programme (DP)? The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world s leading universities. The Diploma Programme prepares students for effective participation in a rapidly evolving and increasingly global society as they: develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically acquire breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding, studying courses from six subject groups develop the skills and a positive attitude towards learning that will prepare them for higher education study at least two languages and increase understanding of cultures, including their own make connections across traditional academic disciplines and explore the nature of knowledge through the programme s unique theory of knowledge course undertake in-depth research into an area of interest through the lens of one or more academic disciplines in the extended essay enhance their personal and interpersonal development through creativity, action and service. The curriculum IB Diploma Programme students must choose one subject from each of the five groups (1 to 5), ensuring breadth of knowledge and understanding in their best language, additional language(s), the social sciences, the experimental sciences and mathematics. Students must also choose either an arts subject from group 6, or a second subject from groups 1 to 5. DP subjects can be taken at higher level or standard level. At least three and not more than four subjects are taken at higher level (240 teaching hours), while the other subjects are taken at standard level (150 teaching hours). Students can study and take examinations, in English, French or Spanish. Two DP subjects are classified as interdisciplinary subjects and so satisfy the requirements of more than one subject group: Literature and performance - group 1 and group 6 Environmental systems - group 3 and group 4 In addition to disciplinary and interdisciplinary study, the Diploma Programme features three core elements that broaden students educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. The Diploma Programme core The extended essay asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. The world studies extended essay option allows students to focus on a topic of global significance which they examine through the lens of at least two DP subjects. Theory of knowledge develops a coherent approach to learning that unifies the academic disciplines. In this course on critical thinking, students inquire into the nature of knowing and deepen their understanding of knowledge as a human construction. Creativity, action, service (CAS) involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the Diploma Programme. Creativity encourages students to engage in the arts and creative thinking. Action seeks to develop a healthy lifestyle through physical activity. Service with the community offers a vehicle for new learning with academic value. The three strands of CAS enhance students personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning and enable journeys of self-discovery.

12 Diploma Programme subject groups Group 1 Studies in language and literature Language A: literature 55 languages offered Language A: language and literature 16 languages offered Literature and performance (also group 6) 3 languages offered Group 2 Language acquisition Language B 23 languages offered Language ab initio 12 languages offered Classical languages 2 languages offered Group 3 Individuals and societies - Business and management - Economics - Geography - History - Information technology in a global society - Philosophy - Psychology - Social and cultural anthropology - World religions (SL only) - Environmental systems and societies (also group 4) Group 4 Sciences - Biology - Chemistry - Design technology - Environmental systems and societies (also group 3) - Physics - Computer science - Sports, exercise and health science (SL only) Group 5 Mathematics - Mathematical studies SL - Further Mathematics HL - Mathematics SL - Mathematics HL Group 6 The arts - Music - Theatre - Visual arts - Dance - Film - Literature and performance (also group 1) Diploma Programme courses online Students can enrol in a range of authorized DP courses online offered via their IB World School through Pamoja Education Ltd.

13 Assessment Students take written examinations at the end of the programme, which are marked by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school, which are either initially marked by teachers and then moderated by external moderators or sent directly to external examiners. The marks awarded for each course range from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). Students can also be awarded up to three additional points for their combined results on theory of knowledge and the extended essay. The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole programme and to satisfactory participation in the creativity, action, service requirement. The highest total that a Diploma Programme student can be awarded is 45 points. Assessment is criterion-related, which means student performance is measured against pre-specified assessment criteria based on the aims and objectives of each subject curriculum, rather than the performance of other students taking the same examinations. The range of scores that students have attained remains statistically stable, and universities value the rigour and consistency of Diploma Programme assessment practice. Quality assurance and professional development Any school, or group of schools, wishing to offer one or more IB programmes as an IB World School must first be authorized. The requirements are the same for all schools, and the procedure is designed to ensure that schools are well prepared to implement the programme(s) successfully. All IB World Schools are required to participate in an ongoing process of review and development, using the same programme standards and practices. As part of its ongoing commitment to the development of a highly skilled global learning community, the IB provides a wide range of high-quality professional development opportunities to help new, experienced and expert school leaders and educators understand, support, and successfully deliver IB programmes reflecting IB standards and practices. At King Edward s School we made the decision to move to a solely IB Diploma curriculum because we believed that it would provide a really challenging education and would be the best preparation for university study.
