‘The principle goal of education is to create men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.’
Jean Piaget



The curriculum at Ray Lodge Primary School sets out the body of knowledge and skills that our pupils will gain at each stage of their time at the school.


Our curriculum has been adopted in order to support pupils to build their knowledge and to apply that knowledge as skills.  Using the National Curriculum to underpin our curriculum, subjects are planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards clearly defined end points.


For most subjects, the school has adopted, and then adapted, external schemes of work. For others, the school has developed its own sequential and progressive curriculum to ensure that the curriculum reflects the school’s local context.


Our curriculum is implemented through a whole-school strategic approach to the spiritual, cultural and moral development of pupils in order to equip them for life and to make the world a better place.



How we teach our curriculum:


Our curriculum is taught through:


  •  well taught and appropriately sequenced content


thoughtfully designed assessment practice



 consideration of an appropriate model of progression



The curriculum is:




cumulative; it allows pupils to make conscious connections in its content, across subjects, through vocabulary choices. Our staff make these connections explicit.






Our provision is informed by educational research into effective teaching practices, cognition and how knowledge and understanding develops. 






How do we teach handwriting?


We follow the Nelson handwriting scheme to enable our children to form their letters in the conventional way and write in a  joined script which is neat, fluent and legible.


The following links will help you support your child with their handwriting at home:
