Ages 5–11


Our Primary curriculum at our Shanghai, Pudong elementary school follows the framework of the National Curriculum for England which is adapted to meet the needs of the international community using the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).


Our Primary curriculum empowers children to become ambitious, confident, and inspired, approaching learning with a clear focus on progressing their skills.


English National Curriculum (ENC)

The English National Curriculum is well regarded because of the careful structure of this stage, which lays the foundations for future education. Children develop their potential in all areas, with a particular focus on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.

The English National Curriculum at our Pudong elementary school also places a clear emphasis on personal, social, health, and economic education. This framework is designed to provide the highest academic quality for your child’s education.


Developed with your child’s progress in mind

The curriculum at our Pudong Primary school also encourages teachers to make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. We take a global approach to learning, helping children to connect their studies to where they are living now, as well as looking at perspectives from other cultures, enabling them to be truly global citizens in the future.


Enrichment Opportunities

Classroom learning is supported 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 at NAIS Pudong 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.

When it comes time to move on to our adjoining Secondary Campus your child will be supported through the process, ensuring the transition is a happy one.



At NAIS Pudong we offer a truly global experience with outstanding teachers and exceptional educational opportunities. Here, students achieve high marks in exams and learn to make a difference in the world outside the classroom.
