Curriculum at Littlemoor

Our curriculum reflects the individual nature of our school together with prescribed elements from the national curriculum.

At Littlemoor, we offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
  • includes a balanced approach to the pupils’ RE that is broadly Christian but, where required, takes account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Britain
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life
  • promotes high levels of achievement and good behaviour
  • focuses on the necessary priorities for ensuring that all pupils make excellent progress in reading, writing and mathematics
  • actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs - LINK -
  • includes a balanced approach to the pupils’ RE that is broadly Christian but, where required, takes account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions represented in Britain.

Our rigorous high-value curriculum covers the Areas of learning in the Foundation Curriculum for our Nursery and Reception children, and the relevant breadth of study in the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum for our Year 1 and Year 2 children.

Our curriculum reflects the individual nature of our school together with prescribed elements from the national curriculum. The needs and interests of our children drive what is happening in our school, with children's achievement levels the starting point for all curriculum planning.

At Littlemoor, we place a strong emphasis on teaching the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics and our children achieve high standards in these key ares of the curriculum.

We can summarise our curriculum intent throught the following key areas:

Key Areas of our Curriculum Intent

Through our curriculum we intend to:

Develop core learning; placing a strong emphasis on our children becoming fluent readers and at least meeting national expectations in Speaking & Listening, Reading, Writing, Maths and Science.

Develop Foundation Learning: ensuring that all children reach their potential and at least meet national expectations in the Creative Arts, Humanities, Technology & Computing and RE.

Develop learning behaviours in our children; developing the behaviours the children need to succeed in the world such as concentration, resilience, the enjoyment of learning and curiosity; supporting children to develop a growth mindset

Develop the holistic wellbeing of our children: ensuring that they develop character and a moral compass, know how to keep themselves safe and healthy and become responsible members of the community.

Provide a range of experiences beyond the curriculum; taking into account their previous experiences and providing a ‘bucket list’ of experiences to inspire awe, wonder and a thirst for learning in our children.
