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 that we do. From Early Years Foundation Stages to Upper Key Stage 2, children learn about learning. From repeated experiences that modify our brains to positive cognitive conflict that helps us improve. We encourage a Growth Mindset and perseverance in the face of obstacles, so that we can grow.
Our incredible learning community, made up of over 30 different nationalities, results in a unique 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 in what they love.
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 out 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 taught across the curriculum: history, geography, science, art, design and technology, computing, music, physical education, society and international mindedness.
It is a curriculum designed to prepare children for an ever-changing, increasingly connected world. Although we cannot be sure what kind of jobs children will have in the future, we must teach them to be flexible, persevering, respectful and motivated; able to cooperate and communicate with others around the world.
