Culvers House Primary School in Sutton has seen a lot of changes in the couple of years since the school went into Special Measures. Now, with a new Headteacher and Deputy, the school is going from strength to strength and wants to show other schools how far it has come. The International Primary Curriculum has been a key part of this change.
Deputy Headteacher, Adam Young, who has led the introduction of the IPC, says “We did a very brave thing; we took on the International Primary Curriculum. It seemed to address perfectly all the improvements that HMI (Ofsted) had asked us to make. We were apprehensive about adopting a totally new curriculum, but it’s made a dramatic difference. It’s been a critical element in transforming the children’s enthusiasm for learning and created the opportunity for making links between subjects and getting parents joining in with the children’s learning at home. Everyone is now on board with the learning and that’s made a huge difference to the school.”
The impact was already evident in the June 2011 HMI visit, when the school came out of Special Measures six months early. The inspector said that the children “relish their learning: they buzz with excitement,” and that the International Primary Curriculum with its “new topics and themes has provided pupils with a new zest for learning.” Headteacher, Robert Eyre-Brook comments, “Introducing the IPC was one of the best decisions we made. It has contributed so much to all we have achieved. The feedback from children, parents and staff is hugely positive”.
This June, Culvers House will be showing other schools how far it has come. A whole school Olympics Fortnight is planned, when every single class will be following the IPC’s Olympics-themed units of learning and even holding an Ancient Greek themed Olympic Games. The children will be studying every subject - from Geography to Music to PE - through the theme of the Olympic Games and inviting other schools to come and see for themselves the great learning now going on throughout the school. Teacher Brooke Barnes explains: “We’ve made a 180-degree change here in just two years and we want other schools that may feel as apprehensive about a curriculum change as we did, to see what a difference it has made.”
Any schools interested in visiting during this time should contact Adam Young at Culvers House Primary School on 020 8255 6199.
