At New Longton All Saints’, our curriculum has been carefully and creatively designed in consultation with the pupils, the parents, the staff and the governors to ensure that what we deliver is relevant to the needs of our children and our community, capitalising on their interests whilst providing avenues for new knowledge, skills and understanding. We aim to excite, challenge and inspire our children, engaging their imagination and their intellect, fostering an enduring love for learning in a wholly inclusive and nurturing Christian Ethos.
As a school, we offer a range of thoughtful, meaningful and stimulating learning experiences which supports the spiritual, moral, social and cultural and academic development of our children and enriches them, giving the the confidence and skills for a fulfilled and happy life, instilling in them an ethos of hard work and a drive to be the best they can be. Our Christian Values are at the heart of everything we do and we encourage our children to embody these values in all elements of school life.
We believe that all children should be valued and successful, experiencing the feelings of accomplishment in a wide range of activities and circumstances. As a result, our curriculum provides an excellent mix of academic and personal development. It affords high importance to core and foundation subjects, but also ensures the well-being of our pupils is valued, supported and planned for, within our curriculum design.
As a proud Church of England school, RE and worship is very important to us. We followed the Blackburn Agreed Syllabus and work closely with the diocese to ensure that our RE provision reflects current thinking both locally and nationally.
At our school we seek to create opportunities for children to experience and excel in a range of activities that enhance and extend the National Curriculum. Children have opportunities both inside and outside the classroom e.g. Art Weeks with parental galleries, Forest School Days, Residential trips, gifted and talented workshops, a variety of sporting events, visiting speakers and much more. We also have excellent after school clubs which vary from yoga to cookery club.
Our aim is to always ensure that our children are given the opportunity to achieve the expectations set out in the national curriculum and also ensure that tangible, real-life learning supports the acquisition of skills and knowledge, which is built upon across their time in our school.
A fun way to learn!
