SRV International School appreciates and encourages a childhood that’s driven by curiosity and creativity.
To ensure best teaching practices, a full-time Head of PYP and Coordinator work to successfully mentor the teachers and students and plan and implement the academic calendar.
What is International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP)?
The PYP is one of the four programmes offered by the International Baccalaureate and is designed for students from ages 3 to 12 years. The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, and lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on developing the child’s curiosity, both within and beyond the classroom.
These themes are selected for their relevance in the real world. They are described as transdisciplinary because they focus on issues that go beyond classroom subjects, and also help teachers to develop a programme of inquiry.
The teachers at SRV International School identify and develop significant ideas that require students to have a substantial level of involvement. This framework ensures that students examine each theme, participate in leadership training and broaden their horizon.
The learning they receive is supported and balanced by skills and knowledge from six subject areas: Language, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, PSPE (Personal, Social and Physical Education) and Arts which foster the child’s all-round development.
The PYP aims to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant for the learners between 3–12 years of age. The curriculum is transdisciplinary in that it focuses on issues that go beyond classroom learning.
In the enhanced PYP the learners are given the opportunity to “Voice”, “Choice” and “Ownership”. The agency is the center of the learning wherein the students are involved in planning and executing what, why and how they want to learn.
On the whole, the PYP Curriculum is organized according to three main aspects around which the learning and teaching revolves:
The written curriculum comprises five essential elements characteristic to a top- ranked IB school:
This approach provides students with the learning and space they need to develop ideas. It encourages them to question, consider and refine their understanding of the natural world by:
As a top-ranked IB school, every assessment does the following:
Through assessments, teachers identify students’ knowledge, their understanding, their capabilities and their preferences at different stages in the learning and teaching process. This input also enables them to plan and adopt effective teaching methods. It is a thoughtful process that makes SRV International School one of the best schools in Tamil Nadu.
At SRV International School, learning is a continuous journey. The teachers, for their part, use a wide range of assessment strategies to allow the reflection of learning.
In the final year of the PYP, students collaborate to carry out an extended, in- depth, collaborative project known as the PYP exhibition. The PYP exhibition allows students to work their way through real-life issues or problems and share solutions with the school community. It also provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process to assess students' understanding. It represents a unique and significant opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes developed throughout their journey in PYP and an opportunity to celebrate their transition into IGCSE.
Learning can never happen in a solo environment. Hence, all the stake holders are involved in the learning and teaching through guest sessions, field trip, survey etc. The parents, facilitators, Leadership team and Governing body along with the students work to bring in the transdisciplinary learning among students.
