Our curriculum

 

 

At Candleby Lane we ensure that our children develop as active, inquisitive and confident learners, with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the next stage of their education. We  make learning engaging so that all children achieve their full potential. We have high expectations for every child and work together to ensure that our curriculum is real, relevant and exciting.

Learning begins with a hook or a wow.... A dragon's tail mysteriously appears in the classroom one morning. Using the children's natural curiosity and an enquiry approach, learning is developed through exciting and carefully planned activities. Why did  Henry VIII marry six times?  What will we need for a trip to Oymyakon?

 

Each term children explore, create and research knowledge, concepts and skills. Children take pride in producing high quality outcomes which reflect their achievements and showcase their learning:- A Robin Hood rap , a framed portrait of Anne Boleyn or a diary account of the Great Fire of London.

Each term we enjoy sharing our learning with the community, parents and carers. There might be an art exhibition, a mummification ceremony or a film show. These events are hugely popular with the children and very well attended by parents, carers and Governors.

Our curriculum is intrinsically linked both to our school motto; Look forward with confidence and back with pride and to our core school values,

FUN   CONFIDENCE   PRIDE  RESPONSIBILITY    PERSEVERANCE   ASPIRATION     CREATIVITY.

By ensuring our curriculum links with the values, it enables our children not only to grow academically but holistically. We are proud of the fact that our children leave Candleby Lane School as respectful individuals who are self assured, have confidence in themselves and understand  British values.

The National Curriculum Here is a link to the National Curriculum for England. As an academy we do not have to follow this curriculum, however we have made the choice to adopt the English, Maths, Science and Computing. We have built on our existing curriculum to ensure our children are given a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum to prepare them for their future.
