Curriculum Intent Statement

At Long Toft Primary School our curriculum embraces the community in which it is situated; recognising local history and heritage and most importantly, raising the aspirations of all our children. We place strong emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils. Our school community has identified a clear set of values that underpin expectations for behaviour for all members of our school family.

Our curriculum is designed to recognise children’s individual learning needs and remove barriers. We provide quality first hand experiences which equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. There is a focus on developing the whole child, preparing them to become responsible citizens of the twenty-first century. 

Curriculum Implementation

  • Provide interesting and innovative lessons that engage and challenge all pupils.
  • Provide pupils with a curriculum that is personalised.
  • Ensure that the curriculum is accessible for all learners groups.
  • Provide pupils with opportunities and experiences to broaden their interests and aspirations and nurtured their curiosity of the wider world. We will do this through the implementation of stunning starts and fantastic finishes for all topics.
  • Provide a unique Life Skills curriculum including a Mindfulness approach.

Curriculum Impact

We continually monitor and evaluate the progress of our pupils through the use of key organisers, which clearly demonstrate the progression of skills across each year group and curriculum area.  Quality formative assessment provides learners with immediate feedback in lesson, informing next steps in teaching and learning. Learning logs and mind maps are used as tools to assess and to cement key concepts into children’s long term memory.
