International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

"​We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things because we’re CURIOUS & CURIOSITY keeps leading us down new paths" - Walt Disney

The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Ajmera Global School offers IB’s Primary Years Programme from Nursery (3 years) to Grade 5 (11 years). The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 11 years and emphasizes on the holistic development of the whole child through focus on the cultural, emotional, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual needs.

At the heart of the PYP’s philosophy is a commitment to using guided, purposeful inquiry as the primary vehicle for learning. The programme actively engages students in their own learning and encourages them to develop a lifelong curiosity about the world. Students are encouraged to ask questions and reason things to develop a sound method for evaluating information and building knowledge.

Primary Years Programme

The PYP programme is an excellent curriculum that provides inquiry-based, transdisciplinary learning that enhances the knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills and character traits of students. AGS, a recognized international PYP school enables students to be an active participant in developing their skills other than just academics. We ensure that the curriculum offered is engaging, relevant and challenging thereby developing the critical thinking and self-confidence of students.

Agency, Efficacy, ​​and ​Action

Agency and self-efficacy are fundamental to learning in the PYP. Throughout the programme, the learner is an agent for their own and others learning. They direct their learning with a strong sense of identity and self-belief, and in conjunction with others, build a sense of community and awareness for the opinions, values and needs of others.

Action, the core of student agency, is integral to the PYP learning process and to the programme’s overarching outcome of international mindedness. Through taking individual and collective action, students come to understand the responsibilities associated with being internationally minded and to appreciate the benefits of working with others for a shared purpose.
