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.
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.
