Our Curriculum

Our vision for our curriculum comes directly from our whole school vision. It has been carefully crafted by our teaching staff in order to ensure that we provide an education that helps every child reach their divine potential and enables them to have a life-long love of learning. Each of our subject-leaders has then designed their subject to stem from an evidence-basis where our vision is threaded through at every point.

Our Curriculum Vision

Everything we do, at Lanercost CE Primary School, stems from our children having a life-long love of learning. We are proud of our inclusive environment, which is firmly rooted in a shared Christian ethos and fosters the care and nurture of our school community. As a school, in partnership with parents and carers, we strive to build strong foundations for an excellent education.  We enable our children to achieve all of their divine potential by inspiring them and promoting opportunities to delight in their learning as well as allowing them to grow into successful, compassionate, young adults who recognise their role in the community and the ever-changing wider world.

We aim to accomplish this through a loving, structured and joyful environment with consistently high standards of teaching. Our engaging and immersive learning is based upon the National Curriculum (2014), developed from a love of reading and reflects our school's unique circumstances. We make the most of our beautiful location, which is a stone’s throw from Hadrian’s Wall, Lanercost Priory, Naworth Castle and close to Northumbria National Park.  

This brave, broad and rich curriculum motivates all of our children to build concepts, skills and knowledge for life. They become curious learners who are led by enquiry and inspired by a range of real-life experiences and cultural enrichment. Each of our subject leaders has worked hard to craft their subject curriculum to ensure this within their subject.

We know that the greatest way to understand school-life is to become a part of your child's learning journey. We aim to run several shared learning events, workshops and cultural enrichment moments that you can participate in, allowing you to see your child's progress and ventures in school. Please see our school website, social media platforms and school newsletter for the latest parent and community events.
