PYP Learner Profile

from the IB Primary Years Programme Curriculum

The learner profile describes a list of attributes that promote academic rigour and the establishing of a personal value system leading to international-mindedness. It is expected that PYP teachers will assess and report on individual student development regarding each of these attributes.

The programme encourages students to become:

  • inquirers  —  their natural curiosity has been nurtured and they actively enjoy learning
  • thinkers  —  they exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to solving complex problems
  • communicators  —  they receive and express ideas and information confidently in more than one language
  • risk-takers  —  they approach unfamiliar situations without anxiety and have the confidence to explore new ideas
  • knowledgeable  —  they have explored themes that have global significance and have acquired a critical mass of knowledge
  • principled  —  they have a sound grasp of the principles of moral reasoning and have acquired integrity, honesty and a sense of justice
  • caring  —  they show sensitivity towards the needs and feelings of others, and have a sense of personal commitment to helping others
  • open-minded  —  they respect the values of other individuals and cultures and seek to consider a range of points of view
  • well-balanced  —  they understand the importance of physical and mental balance and personal well-being
  • reflective  —  they give thoughtful consideration to their own learning by constructively analysing their personal strengths and weaknesses.
