Becoming an IB World School…

Dartford Primary Academy has started its journey to becoming an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3-12 nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

The PYP is carefully planned alongside Development Matters in our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) classrooms to ensure a rich and engaging learning environment that promotes child led inquiry. The PYP challenges children to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues in real life contexts. We encourage parents to collaborate with teachers and students to ensure a holistic experience with an abundance of opportunities for children to strengthen their understanding of a variety of concepts.

Please explore this site to learn more about how the PYP is helping us to nurture our students and prepare them for the wider world.
