Lledó adds two new international achievements with the authorisation of the PYP of the International Baccalaureate and the celebration of Benchmarking
Agora Lledó International School, in Castellón, will from now on officially have a new insignia in its educational offer. In addition to the more than 10 years which it has been teaching the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP), it has now been officially and definitively authorised to become a school which teaches the Primary Years Programme (PYP).
After three years of demanding work to improve the implementation of the PYP, the International Baccalaureate recognised and formalised the authorisation process to implement this recognised international education system for primary schools. The school’s evaluation process verified the correct use of all PYP elements: conceptual learning, the development of the different learning skills of the students (thinking, social, communication, research and self-management skills) or the development of the attributes of the IB learning community, among other fundamental issues to ratify Lledó school as an official IB PYP school.
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is aimed at students from 3 to 12 years of age and is based on a transdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum framework that develops conceptual understanding. It is an educational system in which students use their own initiative to take responsibility for their own learning, learning through enquiry and reflection of their learning process.
In addition to the DP and PYP, the Lledó School has begun the progressive implementation of the Middle Years Programme (MYP), for the Secondary School years, with which it seeks to complete its international educational offer.
In addition, the Lledó School hosted the 16th edition of the CICAE Benchmarking and Education Meeting on the 9th, 20th and 21st October. For three days, this event brought together headmasters and teachers from 33 of the best public schools in Spain, including Globeducate Schools which actively participated, such as Agora Madrid, Agora Sant Cugat and Agora Portals, as well as the host, Agora Lledó International School. It was also attended by the Granada College, Agora International Barcelona and Agora Andorra.
The more than one hundred professionals from the field of education had the opportunity to learn first-hand from observing the practical work in the classroom, the educational project in its three academic stages at Agora Lledó, a school which has stood out for years for its excellent academic results in the International Baccalaureate, which has made it a benchmark at national level, as it has been ranked for several years in the top positions at national level among one of the leading schools in Europe.
