The Longmoor Curriculum
The Longmoor Curriculum follows the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014, but is wider than this, being unique to this school and community as well as being flexible enough to meet the needs of any particular cohort of pupils at any given point in time. It sets high standards and has high expectations of what our children can achieve. It offers our pupils opportunities in and outside of school to investigate, discover, enquire and imagine, opening their eyes to the possibilities available to them now and in their future lives.
We teach all the statutory National Curriculum subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Foreign Languages, Music and R.E. In addition, we provide physical, social, health and emotional education (PSHE) and we are a Philosophy4Children school.
In EYFS and Key Stage 1, we use the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme supplemented by resources from Phonics Bug/Bug Club (overview available here).
For further details of the curriculum offered by our school, please see our Curriculum Guide:
Study webs are produced by the start of each half-term by the teachers in each year-group. Their purpose is to give teachers a useful overview of the subjects and studies they plan to cover in the half-term and to share this information in an easy-to-read format with subject co-ordinators, school leaders, children and parents. Visit the Year-group pages under the ‘Pupils’ menu at the top of this page to see the study webs for this year.
The following links provide parents and carers with the long-term curriculum plan for each year group for the academic year. Please do be aware though that whilst the curriculum content will generally not change, timings and the context used may alter as dictated by the needs of the children. For the most up-to-date information on curriculum delivery see the half-termly study webs.
Keeping Safe and Healthy
The ‘Keeping Safe and Healthy’ curriculum we have developed in school incorporates PSHE along with relationships education, elements of safeguarding and eSafety. It also has strong links to SMSC and the promotion of British values.
We take advantage of opportunities to deliver this curriculum with other curriculum subjects wherever possible and use the services of other professionals, theatre companies and charitable organisations to help deliver these vital messages to our children.
Our Keeping Safe and Healthy curriculum map is provided below:
As part of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils at Longmoor Community Primary School, we are committed to the promotion of those fundamental British values which will prepare our children for life in modern Britain – democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. These values are exemplified in the words, actions and influences of everyone in school, rooted in our values and ethos and reflected in the school’s mission statement and aims.
They are seen in our curriculum – in particular our PSHE programme, Philosophy4Children and R.E. lessons; in our promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development; in our assemblies and collective worship; in our visits and visitors – including links with community and charity groups; in our democratically-elected School Council and our House System; in our relationships with local police, fire and other community services.
Further detail is given in the statement below of how we promote each of these fundamental British values:
- Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
