Introduction and Rationale
Our bespoke curriculum has been designed to be contextualised for the children at Front Lawn. It is the result of research into different models of curriculum design and analysis of the needs of the children at the school.
Firstly, we believe passionately that our curriculum should be broad and balanced.
Our curriculum provides a broad range of experiences for our children:
Our children's backgrounds, our culture and our climate for learning provide the following drivers that underpin all areas of our curriculum:
Possibilities - which helps children to build aspirations and know available possibilities for their future lives
Initiative - which helps children grow as independent learners, not dependent on adults to learn
Happiness - which helps our children to focus on the positive and fully make the most of their lives
Community - which helps our children to make a real difference to the area in which they live
Children enjoy a full spectrum of academic, physical, spiritual, moral, social, cultural activities that enrich their lives.
Our curriculum provides appropriate balance:
As a result our pupils thrive.

It is the result of research into different models of curriculum design and analysis of the needs of the children at the school.
Our curriculum is designed to enable the following outcomes to be met by ALL children.
In order to ensure that learning in every subject is sequenced appropriately, we have implemented Progression Documents (see below). These ensure that learning is staged and builds on prior knowledge. This provides the children with the opportunity to revisit vital skills and knowledge regularly and embed this learning; therefore becoming experts.
We ensure that we track children's progress in all subjects. We believe this is important because every child is brilliant at something and deserves the chance to receive feedback, make progress and experience opportunities to deepen their learning in all subjects.
