Lander Road Primary School Curriculum Overview
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 and beyond the school day.
English and Maths 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.
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.

Our school curriculum has an extremely positive impact upon all learners. This is reflected in core subjects through outcomes in statutory assessments, which is summarised below:
Children enter the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) with abilities below those typical for their age, making at least good progress through the EYFS and entering KS1 with standards in line with national averages. Pupils continue to build on the solid foundations in KS1. Standards at the end of KS1 are broadly in line with the national averages. Pupils typically make good progress through KS2 ending Y6 with standards that are generally in line with the national average in reading and maths and above in writing.
