Working collaboratively with all stakeholders, Lerryn School Curriculum is now in its infancy of development.
We are working on expanding our curriculum linked to the unique position in Lerryn as the totality of a child’s experience at Lerryn C of E School, specifically reflecting on our Christian Ethos with the aim to equip children with the tools they need to progress to the next phase in their lives. At the heart of everything we do here at Lerryn is our vision of ‘small but mighty. This involves a covenant or promise between all stakeholders to work together to provide an exciting, stimulating curriculum with a strong emphasis on the responsibility we all have to care for our fellow human beings both near and far and to be responsible custodians of the earth God created and required us to look after. The story of the loaves and the fishes is a powerful visual reminder of this promise.
All stakeholders were part of the development of the curriculum design. To ensure curriculum quality, we have introduced the following:
Developed sequential learning throughout the school, ensuring children build sufficiently on previous knowledge by picturing the curriculum as a progression model.
we are building a big picture for each topic giving a local/national issue to be investigated and a personalized reason for in-depth study.
Provided children with clear outcomes in order to help achieve curriculum ambitions.
Included regular links to core subject disciplines considering breadth and curriculum content.
Established joint curriculum leadership/ownership and listened to the pupil's voice.
We are starting to construct Knowledge Organisers, focused on subject-specific language and strategies to address long-term memory.
Crafted specific skills required to be successful in learning.
At Lerryn, we are committed to developing caring and holistic individuals who are passionate about their learning. The aim is to aid in maximizing frequent opportunities for meaningful cross-curricular links and practical learned experiences. Celebrating the school’s unique characteristics, our curriculum is broad and balanced with topics covered linking to our school heritage together with exploring a range of themes from further afield. Following our school values of:
our curriculum has been designed collaboratively as a team where an issue, problem or leading question enables children to become fully immersed in the exploration of their topic.
It is our passion to stretch and challenge every individual’s potential through a nurturing and loving approach.
