The Creative Curriculum
At Lomeshaye we are very proud of our creative curriculum, ensuring that our pupils have real life experiences through numerous visitors to school and educational visits linked closely to curriculum objectives. This is an important part of your child’s education. Our curriculum is planned through a range of themes, which link subject areas together to develop key knowledge skills. Pupils are involved in the planning and evaluation of each theme. Themes can change to reflect the needs of the pupils and to reflect events that are happening in the local and wider community. Future themes are planned according to world events and pupil choice. We strive to develop your child intellectually, physically and socially by applying high standards to learning and teaching. We try hard to create an ethos and environment where they can grow in self-confidence, develop high self-esteem and have respect for everyone they come into contact with.
To find out more about our curriculum read our Prospectus and half termly curriculum newsletters on each year group's page. Each half term, teachers send out a curriculum newsletter with areas of learning for the core subjects and creative curriculum, as well as providing information on how you can support your child.
Recent years have seen huge and significant changes in education on both a local and national level. Consequently life at Lomeshaye continues to be extremely exciting and busy, as we build on our successes and make plans for the future of our school and its pupils.
The Government introduced a New National Curriculum in September 2014. “The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that 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.” (Dept for Education)
