The Aims of our Lane End Curriculum
Our curriculum provides the progressive development of skills and aims to build on the prior knowledge and learning of the children at our school.
We feel this approach ensures that all our learners acquire the necessary skills, concepts, knowledge and understanding they need to make excellent progress within school and in the wider world.
We seek to develop opportunities for pupils to become independent, be resilient, have a growth mindset, and be curious about the world they live in so that they will all become happy, successful and lifelong learners.
Our ambition is that through all we do, including curriculum provision, we continually enable all our children to 'Learn, Believe, Aspire and Achieve'.
Within the curriculum areas below, you will see how we have translated this ambition and drive into subject specific aims. These are the skills, knowledge and understanding that we want the children to acquire during their time at Lane End Primary.
We also believe that every child should be equipped with a depth of language and breadth of vocabulary that will enable them to articulate their knowledge, skills and understanding, and be confident and effective communicators.
For learning in English and Mathematics, we have created a comprehensive and bespoke 'Lane End Milestones' Framework - that exemplifies the expectations we have for our pupils in each year group. We feel it is an aspirational overview of the reading, writing and mathematical skills, knowledge and understanding we will support our children to develop and build during their time with us. In the Class Pages of the website, for each topic or theme area, there will be a curriculum overview information sheet for parents that will give you some details as to what your child will be learning about in these core areas.
We also believe that for our children to truly 'Learn, Believe, Aspire and Achieve' to the best of their potential, building and developing a set of essential attitudes and characteristics is a key component. We call these our Lane End Super Learning Powers. Find out more about this, and our Super Learning Heroes on the website area dedicated to this core element of the Lane End Curriculum.
Phonics and Reading Schemes
Here at Lane End, we use a range of resources to help your child learn to read, to understand how words are built for both reading and writing.
We follow a Letters and Sounds approach in the teaching of phonics.The main resources we use to develop reading skills are the Bug Club reading scheme which we supplement with a range of other materials that will support all our children's journey to become readers.
We give our parents lots of additional information on how they can support their children in the use of these materials, and with other wider reading activities at home.
Please don't hesitate to ask at any time if you need more information, help or advice on how to help your child.
