Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP)

The CIPP curriculum of VIBGYOR High is based on the ideas, theories and practices that are prevalent internationally. It is a comprehensive provision for teaching, learning and assessing in the core subjects for children aged between 5 to 11 years.

The Primary programme covers the core subjects of English, Math and Science, developing essential skills in literacy, numeracy and scientific enquiry. This programme also covers a good knowledge base, giving students a larger platform for growth and learning.

As per CIPP, Science framework begins at Stage 3/Grade 3, after the child achieves basic literacy and numeracy skills. To cover subject areas for Social Science like Community Living, Our Environment, and so on, we have developed a unique curriculum called VIBGYOR Concepts or V Concepts.

V Concepts is an effective curriculum, which develops knowledge, skills and understanding in three key areas:

  • Academics
  • Personal Development

The goal of V-concepts is to provide a holistic education and develop the skills necessary to prepare our students for academics and prepare them for the challenges of a dynamically changing world.
