INTERNATIONAL PRIMARY CURRICULUM
WELCOME FROM THE PRIMARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL
LES is an amazing place where children learn and thrive.
Our qualified staff of native English and Spanish teachers provide a safe, happy, and stimulating learning environment. Our pupils are offered excellence in both the English and Spanish Curriculum, giving them access to the best of each system.
We provide our growing school community with incredible opportunities to learn and improve in all areas of involvement. From Early Years Foundation Stages to Upper Key Stage 2, children develop new ways to learn. Children cultivate healthy habits at our school which, through repetition, creates postitive cognitive patterns. We encourage a growth mindset and perseverance in the face of obstacles so that we not only emphasis academic advancement, but personal development as well.
Our incredible learning community, comprised of over 30 different nationalities, results in a uniquely diverse culture of people with global aspirations. This growing community allows us to offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and events to help our students thrive.
We would love for you to visit our school and meet our great learning community.

Curriculum – Early Years Foundation Stage Programme, British National Curriculum, and International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
In the Infant Department, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage from PN2 to Foundation 2. This framework sets the standards that all our Infant teachers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well.
From Year 1 to Year 6 we follow the British National Curriculum in English and mathematics and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) in all other subjects.
The IPC is a theme-based curriculum in which the following subjects are universally taught: history, geography, science, art, design and technology, computing, music, physical education, and society and international mindedness.
It is a curriculum designed to prepare children for an ever-changing, increasingly interconnected world. Although we cannot be sure what kind of jobs children will have in the future it is important that we instill the basic values needed in any profession and for personal growth, such as being flexible, persevering, respectful, motivated, cooperative, and communicative.
