At Lyne and Longcross, our curriculum has been designed to help children value their learning experiences, to make connections with their knowledge and understanding as they grow, and to punctuate our curriculum with memorable moments and events for every child to cherish. Our curriculum is underpinned with valuing an individual’s strengths and qualities, allowing every child to build upon their existing knowledge and enabling them to take risks in their learning journey of acquiring new skills.
Through working together, we aim to create a curriculum that places an emphasis on contextual learning, allowing children to develop independence and resilience whilst encouraging them flourish as individuals. Learning needs a context and this is something that is at the very heart of our planning process.
Our curriculum is thematic in its design and as such, learning is crafted around existing skills and knowledge, enabling new experiences and deepening each child’s understanding. We are passionate about learning links, helping children to make connections within their work and seeing the bigger picture to what they learn each lesson.
Our school values of Faith, Courage, Respect, Belonging and Fairness, are woven throughout our curriculum and help children to develop as individuals, encouraging creativity, curiosity and helping children become global citizens. Our vision highlights our mission to work collaboratively to get the very best for our children, and this is something that continues throughout our curriculum design and delivery.
Children leave Lyne and Longcross with a sense of community, confidence and unity. We celebrate successes and encourage development through mistakes. As a school, we strive to ensure that children have a passion for learning and leave with memories that will last a lifetime.
