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.
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 encourages them to learn by using a question as a starting point. Other vital skills are developed through `Philosophy for Pupils` and PSHE.
Our school has a clear intent behind our carefully designed and balanced curriculum offer:
Our curriculum is taught and implemented successfully, with the following strengths:
Our curriculum design ensures that the needs of individual and small groups of pupils can be met within the environment of high quality first teaching, supported by targeted, proven interventions where appropriate. In this way it can be seen to impact in a very positive way on pupils’ outcomes.
Enjoyment of the curriculum promotes achievement, confidence and good behaviour. Pupils feel safe to try new things. High quality visits and visitors to the school enhance the curriculum, broaden pupils` experience of the world, and provide opportunities for writing for a purpose.
Pupils have opportunities to share their learning with each other, their parents and carers and other learners through school-based and external exhibitions, performances, competitions and events involving other schools. Developing their independence and motivation as learners and their sense of responsibility as future citizens is at the heart of all our teaching and learning.
The extremely positive impact that our curriculum has upon all learners is reflected in core subjects through outcomes in statutory assessments, which are reported on annually and can be found on our school website.
The positive impact of the wider curriculum is demonstrated in pupils` behaviours and attitudes – to their peers, to their teachers, to the wider community and to themselves and their own learning.
