Our Learning & Curriculum

Hand in Hand we Learn

'Creative, Caring & Confident'

 

We are curious, take risks and adapt our skills and knowledge to succeed in our learning.

We show kindness and concern for each other. We take pride in ourselves and everything we do.

We ask questions and readily take on challenges.

 

Curriculum Intent

At Longford Primary Academy our curriculum opens our children’s eyes to the world around them, extends opportunity and raises aspirations to enable our children to become independent, forward thinking and confident learners who are adaptable to modern advances with the ability to shape their own futures.

Our curriculum is focused on the sequential development of children’s knowledge and skills across all primary subjects with the aim of ensuring pupils are ready for the next stage of their learning.  Effective teaching of basic core skills embedded into broad and exciting topics provide children with the opportunities to develop and apply their skills critically and creatively.  Topics are stimulated by a text, as we encourage our children to become avid readers.  They are further supported through experiences and visits creating memorable moments for all.

Through a mastery approach, our children confidently embed new concepts into long-term memory.  We aim to build resilience and encourage a positive mind-set amongst our children so they may develop a love for learning and readily take on challenge. 

We encourage parents to be as involved in their child's learning as possible, through shared reading and homework projects related to topic areas covered throughout the school year.
