Learn more about our Primary stage
ISIB is a CIC (Cambridge International Centre) accredited school and follows the Cambridge International Curriculum.
Fully delivered in English language the curriculum is flexible, so we shape it around how we want the students to learn. Subjects are offered and adapted to suit our International and global perspective including their syllabus context, Danish culture and our Inclusive school ethos. The curriculum works alongside our language programs in Danish, German and Spanish to form a unique education suited to the local and International communities.
Cambridge is a curriculum which builds on past knowledge forming a solid base of understanding and inquiry based learning. It is flexible enough that teachers can move within the curriculum and use unique and personalized learning whilst still meeting all the objectives.
Worldwide over 10,000 schools in over 160 countries use Cambridge, which is twice as many as IBO programs, making it the largest International education curricular in the world.

This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. It has been developed in conjunction with Cambridge English Language Assessment and is based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), used across the world to map learners’ progress in English.
The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: numbers, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analysing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.
At ISIB we deliver a ‘Character’ based PSHE curriculum. A person’s ‘character’ develops over time and in a range of contexts, and is shaped by unknown and unpredictable events. However, a planned approach to providing opportunities to develop character-based skills and attributes has been shown to make a difference to outcomes for children and young people.
PSHE is an integral element of a whole-school approach to developing ‘character’, providing the ideal curriculum subject through which to focus on the development of these essential skills and attributes.
Through our character curriculum, students are enabled to develop:
· interpersonal and social effectiveness
· effectiveness within a wider community
· risk management
