The Intent of our Curriculum

Article 28 You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.

Article 29 Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.


‘The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.’ (EYFS Statutory Framework).

‘The National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said, and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement. The National Curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.’  (National Curriculum Aims)

The Statutory EYFS Framework and the content of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study (Key Stages 1 and 2) form the roots of Langtoft Primary School's curriculum. From this statutory national documentation, Langtoft Primary School's curriculum has been devised, developed and personalised to our school community, having evolved from our values, vision and mission statement.  



The intent of our curriculum is to prepare children for the next stage of their learning.  It provides them with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to access learning and to become independent learners.  It should inform and excite, maintain curiosity and raise questions, challenge and enlighten.

The curriculum places great value on increasing pupils’ skills in reading, writing and mathematics.  It is designed to provide learners with opportunities to experience the range of subjects from the National Curriculum so that knowledge can be embedded, core skills applied and understanding deepened.

As a Rights Respecting School, staff understand their role as duty bearers, securing children’s understanding of and access to the Rights of the Child.  The school’s 7 core values underpin the commitment that staff hold towards facilitating children’s progress in the classroom and (Confidence, Cooperation, Independence, Ambition, Consideration, Respect, Resilience), guide children in becoming citizens of Langtoft Primary School and global citizens of the wider world. 

It is our resolve that every child reaches their full potential. They should know and celebrate their strengths. They should be supported in working hard to overcome difficulties. The curriculum they experience should foster an interest in learning. Learning for life.

We ensure all children have a curriculum that:

  • Is personalised, broad and thematic, equipping pupils for life and fostering a life-long love of learning;
  • Enables children to acquire sequential knowledge, understanding, vocabulary and skills, which are based on prior learning and secured through application over time and in different contexts in order to develop understanding (change in long term memory), cultural capital and mastery;
  • Is both progressive and based on consolidating and revisiting content over time, to secure learning in the long-term memory;
  • Is engaging, interesting and relevant to Langtoft's community, allowing children to seek meaning in their learning  and achieve personal growth;
  • Draws on and builds an awareness of the wider world, fostering an appreciation of this, and taking children beyond their own experiences;
  • Facilitates exploration beyond the classroom and connects learning between subjects and the wider world;
  • Gives the opportunity to embed English, mathematical and computing skills across subjects, and allows for the interleaving of concepts and subjects within a mastery approach;
  • Provides opportunities to explore and learn about the environment, aspirations, health and diversity;

  • Communicates the highest expectations;

  • Provides opportunities to explore and experience ambitions for the future where children are inspired to be successful individuals: authors, mathematicians, innovators, scientists, historians, geographers, artists, musicians, sportspeople and positive citizens;
  • Includes a comprehensive approach to well-being, encompassing diet, exercise and mental health;
  • Promotes the core values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance, with regard to the current Equalities Act.
