The school curriculum has recently been reviewed and updated to reflect changes in government guidance, what best suits the needs of our pupils and our community and, most importantly, to ensure it inspires our children to learn, discover, play and experience the awe and wonder of new knowledge and skills.
At New Longton All Saints’ C of E Primary, we have single age classes that work on yearly programmes of study to ensure they cover all key topics. We teach all curriculum subjects (including a modern foreign language at Key Stage 2) in a creative way using the Lancashire Curriculum Resources to guide learning, focusing on the needs of every individual and supporting them in becoming independent lifelong learners with a thirst for learning.
Our whole curriculum also promotes acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Pupils develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in both modern Britain and also our local community.
You can see our curriculum planning in action by viewing our half-termly Curriculum Overviews on each class page in the children’s section. This also provides parents with the homework learning which enhance the learning in school with follow up at home. We will also be providing parents and children with our yearly objectives and overviews in Reading, Writing and Mathematics so that we can all share how we, as a school, assesses children’s learning against the National Curriculum and provide them with suitable challenge and a strong sense of the next steps they will take in their learning.
We use synthetic phonics to help support early reading skills and we make use of the Oxford Reading Tree scheme, although we encourage all parents and carers to read far more widely and not to allow scheme books to dictate children’s experiences of reading.
Most importantly of all, we want the children to have fun, to be happy and to come into school with a spring in their step! We hope that by looking around our website in areas like ‘School Events’ and ‘Children’s Work’, you will see our ethos in action.
A fun way to learn!
