NAIS Pudong Primary Curriculum caters for primary children aged 5-11 years old. Our curriculum follows the framework of the National Curriculum for England which is adapted to meet the needs of the international community through the use of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The English National Curriculum is segmented into "Key Stages".

  • Primary

English National Curriculum (ENC)

The English National curriculum is held in high regard across the world and sets out the important knowledge and skills that every child has a right to learn. Its structure ensures that children develop their potential in all areas, with a particular focus on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.

The English National Curriculum also places a clear emphasis on personal, social, health, and economic education. The framework of academic excellence, respect and good manners, all hallmarks of the ENC, ensures that personal development is at the heart of education at Nord Anglia International School Shanghai Pudong.

International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

The International Primary Curriculum encompasses Geography, History, Art and Design Technology. It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific skills for every subject.

The IPC is a world leading international curriculum used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world and developed by our curriculum team Fieldwork Education as part of Nord Anglia Education. The curriculum has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. The IPC takes a global approach to learning, helping children to connect their studies to where they are living now but also to look at learning from the perspective of people in other countries enabling them to be truly global citizens.

Our Primary School Teachers

Our Primary School curriculum is delivered by a talented team of outstanding and experienced teachers who have a highly ambitious approach to all-round excellence and are committed to nurturing and inspiring every child they care for. Learning is a collaborative activity that is complemented by the outstanding care, guidance, and support that each child receives at school.

Our dedicated team aim to ensure your child develops a lifelong love of learning. Through engaging topics, a variety of teaching and learning styles, and a supportive environment in which students can be challenged in their thinking, there is no limit to what your child can achieve.

Enrichment Opportunities

Classroom learning is greatly enriched by specialist provision including Native and Non-native Mandarin, French, German and Spanish, alongside specialist PE staff ensuring the highest quality of sports education and our Performing Arts team driving excellence in music, drama and dance.  Primary school life is also enhanced by access to the Nord Anglia Education Global Campus and unique collaborations with world-leading organisations such as MIT, Juilliard, and UNICEF. This enables your child to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them, to make links between subjects, and foster creativity. With opportunities to be involved in our service programme, residential expeditions, expert speakers, and child-led exhibitions, the primary school is a thriving international community preparing your child for their future in a global world.


With an adjoining Secondary Campus, and a bespoke transition programme, students transfer seamlessly into the secondary curriculum in Year 7. Where academic success ensures your child secures a future in world leading universities.
