Curriculum

One International School Curriculum

Our school follows the British Curriculum and is UK D.O.E and COBIS registered but includes the teaching of Visayan and Tagalog out of respect for our location and with an understanding that children benefit, in a range of ways, from being multilingual. We chose the British curriculum as the basis for our teachings due to its emphasis on the development of the whole student as well as an understanding of a child’s learning needs. Furthermore, it supports the school’s ethos that each child has the right to be viewed as a unique individual with their own distinctive interests, talents and skills.

Pedagogy focuses on practical learning and encourages lesson delivery supporting various styles of knowledge acquisition. When these factors are considered alongside the continuity and transferability offered by a British education and British qualifications around the world, we feel that this offers our students the best opportunities for their future.

Early Years Foundations Stage EYFS (2-4 & 4-5 years old)

The EYFS, was produced in recognition of the importance of the early years as a stage of development where education could be promoted through play to maximize children’s potential. This stage in the curriculum emphasizes child led, child focused and play based learning, where children cover all the subjects they will learn in Key Stage 1 and beyond but at their behest and following their own interests.

Key Stage 1 KS1 (5-7 years old)

At ONE International School Philippines, throughout all key stages of the curriculum, pupils learn, practice, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work. Some of these skills are subject specific such as painting in Art and Design, whilst others are common to several subjects (i.e. enquiry skills in Science, History and Geography), additionally, some skills are universal, for example the skills of communication, improving one’s own learning and performance, and creative thinking.

Key Stage 2 KS2 (7-9 & 9-12 years old)

During KS2, your children will be introduced to the key knowledge needed to ensure that they go on to become conscientious young people who have an appreciation of the world around them and how they can contribute to it.
