Curriculum Overview

Staff’s lesson planning provides suitable learning challenges to stimulate and motivate children’s learning. This encompasses a variety of exciting, first-hand experiences to enable children to acquire appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding preparing them for today’s world and the future ahead. Through the provision of a stimulating environment, children will develop to their potential academically, emotionally, socially and physically. Parents are kept up to date about curriculum issues through communication with individual teachers.

We use the National Curriculum programmes of study as the basis for the children’s learning. We follow a rolling programme using a topic based approach that links different areas of the curriculum. Each aspect of the subject is then differentiated to meet the needs of the children. We provide a curriculum map each term showing the learning planned in all aspects of the curriculum. We reflect and review our curriculum topics regularly, ensuring variety and interest for our children.

Loders Primary School aims to:

Foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a highly practical and cross-curricular approach. Children learn best when they can make links and learn within context. Our curriculum promotes enjoyment of learning through debate, creativity, purpose and relevance. We hope that pupils are motivated by achievement both now and in the future and have a positive attitude towards themselves, others and their environment.
