At De Lacy Primary School, our curriculum is based on the September 2014 National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 & 2 and the Early Years 2012 framework in Reception. The curriculum is delivered in a combination of discrete subjects and a thematic approach.
The planned curriculum promotes learning, personal growth and development. We use literature at the heart of what we do, planning our learning around a class text.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people who can work and cooperate with others, while developing knowledge, skills and attitudes to learning, so they can achieve their true potential.
At De Lacy, we aim to offer a balanced and broad curriculum which enables all pupils to:
- Enjoy learning
- Feel successful in their learning and to promote high self esteem
- Become creative, independent learners
- Be given significant time to learn new skills and have time to practise those skills
- Have the flexibility to decide how best to learn in different situations
- Have the flexibility to decide what they are going to learn and how
- Become successful lifelong learners who are able to reach their full potential
- Be able to evaluate and assess their own learning
- Develop their critical thinking
