Curriculum Statement

At Lacey Gardens Junior School, we carefully design, plan and implement a curriculum to provide balance for every pupil.

At Lacey Gardens Junior School, it is our underlying belief that every child should feel valued and experience the feeling of success in a wide range of curriculum areas. We believe that through the curriculum we can impact on what is in children’s head and how they feel about themselves so that they feel clever, confident and ready to tackle any challenge they may face.

We have designed, organised and planned our curriculum to ensure every child receives an appropriate mix of academic and personal development which means that in practice our curriculum places equal importance on core and foundation subjects.

At Lacey Gardens Junior School, we place high priority on ensuring children’s physical and mental wellbeing are met and are as valued and important as academic development. We understand that children will not be successful learners unless they are emotionally secure, therefore we carefully design our curriculum and adopt a flexible approach to timetabling to ensure that we can meet and respond to any issues which may arise.

We carefully monitor children’s progress with their personal development and our well planned and thoughtful approach to SMSC helps to ensure that every child is well cared for and supported.

Our balanced approach to the curriculum is not at the expense of high standards in core subject areas. High standards and enabling children to reach national expectations and above is of vital importance if they are to succeed at the next stage of their education and go on to achieve full and happy lives.

Our full and rich curriculum, with its excellent range of experiences, ensures that every pupil at Lacey Gardens Junior School makes progress both academically and personally. Our unique curriculum ensures that every child is given the opportunity to shine and flourish.
