Our curriculum reflects the Flying High Partnership’s intent of promoting well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage of their journey. A curriculum based on compassion, integrity and a pursuit of excellence in order for our children to meet the potential.
Leamington’s Curriculum is:
Our curriculum is taught through enquiries, which is a thematic approach, initiated by an enquiry question, for example: Year Two: Will animals be on our planet forever? The enquiry is then taken on a journey of purposeful learning, culminating in authentic outcomes, which answers the question. Each enquiry is planned over ten weeks, with three enquiries planned per year. Other objectives uncovered and seasonal work can then be planned in during the discrete weeks before Christmas, Easter and Summer to ensure complete coverage. Our drivers for each term are: Explore, Discover and Create.
Our pupils have a broad, balanced, relevant and rich curriculum that develops their skills, knowledge and experiences to thrive as lifelong learners. Our children have the strategies that they need to facilitate their own learning and achieve their full potential. They feel empowered, have high self-esteem, are able to follow areas of interest and have the skills and disposition to thrive in the global environment of the 21st century.
