New Curriculum 2014

The Curriculum at Langley First School

Langley First School follows the National Curriculum for key Stages 1 and 2 and EYFS curriculum in Nursery and Reception.  A new version of the National Curriculum was introduced in September 2014 (see documentation) and we have actively embraced the new curriculum and devised a creative, localised and meaningful curriculum for our children prompting a ‘Love for learning’. Our adapted curriculum matches the NC requirements to study subjects in more depth and to ensure mastery of subjects.

We offer our pupils a broad and balanced, engaging and challenging curriculum which meets the needs of our children. We enrich the basic skills taught in our daily maths and literacy lessons with a variety of creative teaching and learning methods to enthuse and challenge our learners.

We have created a topic-based curriculum to make meaningful links between the subjects and linked them to real life contexts. As we live in such a diverse and historically rich area we ensure the topics address our local area to make the learning more meaningful. The topics are taught in year groups and are changed every term or half term. Parents are issued topic overviews at the beginning of each topic.

Langley embraces the use of visits and visitors to enrich the curriculum and ensures there are lots of opportunities for outdoor learning

The curriculum is further enhanced by our range of extra-curricular clubs and our ‘Spread your Wings and Try Sessions’. 
These sessions give children the opportunity to choose and try new skills. They take ownership of their learning and experience something new and exciting. 

We have a highly experienced peripatetic music teacher to deliver lessons in keyboard and violin.

We actively promote Modern British Values throughout and across our whole curriculum. We celebrate diversity and actively promote mutual respect.
