IPC Accreditation focuses on improving children’s learning. Nexus will gain an assurance of quality in our use of the IPC to improve children’s learning in our school. Nexus continually undergoes a process of self-review and to help us with this the IPC provides a series of self-review rubrics or ‘standards’ to confirm that our delivery of the IPC is in the best possible way for improving children’s learning. The self-review and accreditation protocol sets out nine different areas for improving learning through the IPC. These are: A Focus on Learning; Assessment and Evaluation; Subject Integration; Brain Friendly Learning; Rigorous Learning; A Balance of Knowledge, Skills and Understanding; International Mindedness; Classroom Practices and Shared Outcomes. These self-review protocols help us to define whether we are at beginning, developing or mastering level. Nexus was successfully awarded Mastering status in November 2013. In November 2016, Nexus has been awarded Mastering status for the second time.
