Pearson Edexcel iLowerSecondary Curriculum
Pearson Edexcel iLowerSecondary is a complete programme for children aged 11-14 taking English, Mathematics, Science, Computing and Global Citizenship in international schools.
iLowerSecondary comes with a wealth of support with sample schemes of work, exemplified units of work, internally assessed progress tests, externally assessed achievement tests and a comprehensive professional development programme – all supported by world-renowned Pearson print and digital published resources. It provides structure if you need it, flexibility if you don’t.
Based on the latest English National Curriculum (2014), with an international approach, the programme is written with learners of English as an additional language (EAL) in mind. Draw your students in with an internationally focused curriculum and ensure knowledge sticks with accessible and culturally relevant examples and resources.
Cut your planning time and guide your students through the curriculum with our ready-made Schemes of Work. Full Schemes of Work provided are for all three subjects for every year group across iPrimary and iLowerSecondary, with every unit of content exemplified and links to internationally regarded Pearson resources such as Exploring Science and Maths Progress.
Our detailed subject specific Teacher Guides provide support for specialist and non-specialist teachers. The guides also cover teaching techniques, pedagogy and classroom management.
Teacher Professional Development is included in the programme package - face-to-face training delivered locally (subject to local restrictions) as well as online, with ongoing Professional Development provided via webinars and support for school co-ordinators.
Progress Tests for every unit allow you to check ongoing student progress together with end-of-year Progress Tests which are freshly updated every year. Pearson Edexcel Achievement tests for Year (iPrimary) and Year Nine (iLowerSecondary) provide certified recognition of a student’s study. Our popular post results service, ResultPlus, can be used with the achievement test results to assess how your cohort and school have performed.
Supporting you all the way from planning to teaching and learning, and through to assessment, our experts have fully mapped our internationally renowned published resources to the iPrimary and iLowerSecondary - start teaching straight away, with the peace of mind that you have all you need. All our carefully selected resources have been written with learners of English as an additional language (EAL) in mind.
