IB Mission Statement

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.

As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) Candidate school alongside our ISSP Values we are guided by the IB Learner Profile.

The IB learner profile represents a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that encompass intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth. ISSP, as a PYP candidate school, understands that developing and demonstrating the attributes of the learner profile will provide our community with an important foundation for international-mindedness.

Our Values

Our Values which are Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Caring, and Wisdom are aligned with the IB Learner Profile with an overriding imperative to develop well rounded humans who have the skills and attributes to contribute to society and thrive in their future.

Honesty: ISSP learners are expected to be honest and develop integrity throughout their time at the school. Through a safe and nurturing environment, learners can know that they will be supported throughout their tenure in a restorative approach.

Caring: To show genuine care and compassion is a fundamental aspect of our ISSP school expectations. Learners are expected to demonstrate care and compassion through all interactions with peers, community and property.

Respect: Learners develop in the area of respect through cultivating their integrity and responsibility, acceptance and appreciation of differences. Learners grow in their respect for self and each other, the community and the environment.

Responsibility: Learners develop in the area of responsibility through the pursuit of individual interests and passions, a commitment to learning, personal excellence, perseverance and resilience. At ISSP we strive to encourage a passion for learning and a spirit of inquiry and celebrate success and achievement across all endeavors where learners, through their time at school develop the skills to take increasing responsibility for their learning and behavior.

Wisdom: At ISSP we value confidence, creativity and innovation, leadership and initiative, and a balanced and well-rounded education. Opportunities are provided for all members of the community to exercise initiative and leadership and in the process develop greater wisdom. We aim to motivate our learners in all endeavors and encourage the progression in their learning as it moves from knowledge, to understanding, and then into wisdom.
