Lander Road Primary School Curriculum Statement
Our school curriculum meets all the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. We also provide many and varied opportunities to broaden and enrich the curriculum for our pupils through activities both within the school day and after school.
Literacy and numeracy are taught discretely. They are also taught alongside the other subjects of the National Curriculum and RE through creative, cross curricular topics during which, children learn about a number of subjects through one common theme.
We use the Read, Write Inc. scheme to teach phonics in the Early Years and Key Stage One. We use a wide range of reading books in KS1, including books from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.
A new curriculum map which reflects the challenge and content of the national curriculum outlines which themes are taught in each class and when. This document can be found on our website.
The ‘Learning Challenge Curriculum’ is used as a basis for our themes as it provides a rich diversity of topics which appeal to our pupils and encourage them to learn by using a question as a starting point.
RE is taught using the Sefton Agreed Syllabus and we have separate schemes of work for Computing and PE.
Further information on what is taught in each class each term is provided on our termly newsletters on the class pages in the section named 'Children' of this website. If you would like any further information on our school's curriculum, please speak to your child's teacher during one of our weekly drop in sessions or speak to one of our office staff to arrange an appointment.
