Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum is designed to enable children to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through a creative and thematic approach to learning. Knowledge Organisers have been carefully designed to identify the key information and essential knowledge that the children need to have learned by the end of the topic.
The staff at Lapford Community Primary School implement their curriculum through promoting a ‘go for it’ attitude, supporting children to take responsibility for themselves, when appropriate. Building ‘Learning Power’ is at the heart of our teaching. We use Curriculum Maestro as a tool for curriculum planning for topic learning, ensuring there is clear progression in skills and knowledge as the children move through the school, ensuring that pupils are ready for the next step in their learning journey whilst able to retrieve knowledge and skills from their prior learning and school experiences.
RE is taught following the Devon Agreed Syllabus; Music using the programme Charanga and RPSHE through the SCARF (SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) syllabus.  
We believe that we are all on a learning journey together and because of this, our staff continually reflect upon the impact of our teaching through assessment, surveys, discussions, learning walks and data scrutiny. We continually adapt our teaching to suit the needs of our pupils because, above all, we want our pupils to be challenged, prepared and curious learners.
