Church Lane Primary School and Nursery



Curriculum Intention 

Here at Church Lane, we feel passionate about learning at every level and we ensure that every pupil is given the opportunity to succeed- with pupil achievement and enjoyment being at the heart of everything we do.

Our intention is to shape and mould children to reach their full potential. We believe that, in order to achieve this, we need a tailor made curriculum that is built around skills, knowledge and personal development.

We aim to do this by creating and embedding a curriculum which allows for creativity and critical thinking whilst also ensuring that children have access to basic age appropriate knowledge; before building on this prior learning in a focused and aspirational way. This aspect of the curriculum is underpinned by a focus on personal development: providing an array of first hand experiences for our children to learn from; ensuring our children have the opportunities to develop interpersonal skills and build resilience in a supportive environment. In turn we hope that children will understand that learning is a vital lifelong skill.

Underlying all of this planned curriculum is our school ethos and community – we work with children and their families encouraging our children to learn the importance of caring for and valuing their community – ensuring their community in turn values them.

By combining our focused curriculum with our school ethos we hope to open our children’s eyes to the opportunities the world has to offer them – encouraging them to be aspirational, ambitious and successful.
