IB Learner Profile

The values of the IB Learner profile are embedded at Dartford Primary Academy through our practices, environment, and culture.  Staff model positive values, allowing pupils to develop a common vocabulary and reflective practices through the IB values.  Our ambition for all pupils to be determined, persistent achievers, aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people.  The impact of such values is clearly seen through our pupils’ behaviour, creativity, and desire to participate actively in our community.

What is the IB Learner Profile?

The aim of the learner profile is to develop internationally minded citizens who, recognise their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

Through our curriculum design and teaching we explore every opportunity to embed the skills and attributes to be successful both in school and the world around us.  By strengthening these core values and attributes we help develop your child for the next stage of their learning and also for the future world before them.  Your child will be a responsible member of their local, national, and global community.

IB Learner values are taught through our structured assembly programme, allowing pupils the opportunity to explore and debate to strengthen their understanding.  Our curriculum is linked closely to these values and planned across all year groups.  All special events, led through our DPA inquiry days, promote the values of the IB Learner profile and allow pupils the opportunity to reflect on the values and their experiences.

Children also teach each other about the values through class assemblies to parents and pupil actions, whereby students take independent action based on their curriculum learning, to make a difference.
