We have a wide and diverse curriculum here at St Lawrence’s. Of course, the fundamentals of literacy and numeracy are the baseline, but within that we have an exciting, stimulating curriculum that challenges imaginations, accommodates a wide range of learning styles and makes use of our fantastic outdoor environment. We use a variety of schemes such as Read, Write, Inc; Purple Mash; Collins Maths and so on. Links to these schemes can be found below.We place a strong emphasis on P.E. and games, and visiting speakers, drama groups and musicians are welcome, providing valuable enrichment, and we try to ensure that every class goes on a visit every term. Within this model, our children thrive and succeed – achievement is excellent, consistently well above both National and County averages.
We follow a two-year rolling curriculum, following Cycle 1 in even years (eg academic year starting in September 2016 or 2018) and Cycle 2 in odd years eg academic years starting in September 2017 or 2019). The KS1 and KS2 curricula are detailed on their sub-pages; if you would like to know more please contact the school office so that we can direct your enquiry appropriately.
