IB World School

Glenroy West Primary School is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Glenroy West Primary School believes is important for our students. To see how Glenroy West Primary School is implementing the Primary Years Programme, read our parent handbook.



As part of our Candidacy stage we are actively promoting the learner profile throughout our school community. The learner profile provides a long-term vision of education. It is a set of ideals that can inspire, motivate and focus the work of schools and teachers, uniting them in a common purpose. The IB learner profile is the IB mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century. Please click here to see how the Glenroy West Primary School mission statement aligns with the IB mission statement. 


We publish a series of articles in our school newsletters and use student of the week to introduce the attributes of the learner profile to our school community. Read the full IB learner profile. These attributes are regularly incorporated by staff and students in our classes and throughout the school. Families are becoming more familiar with these ideas and concepts, including attributes of the Learner Profile in their feedback to the school in our recent School Review.



Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
