Lilleshall Primary School follows the National Curriculum for Key Stages One and Two (Click here to see the National Curriculum that Lilleshall follows). In the Foundation Stage we follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum. We have a broad and appropriately challenging curriculum as we feel that this is key in promoting and sustaining our high achievement. We recognise and value educational experiences outside the classroom and know that this leads to higher achievement, motivation and personal development of pupils. There are regular trips to a range of locations such as museums, galleries, theatres and outdoor activity centres. Every opportunity is taken to link new experiences to the pupils learning in order to embed the experiences fully in the curriculum and bring learning to life. Speaking and Listening and Dance and Drama are also harnessed to bring the curriculum to life. Ofsted 2007 stated that:
“The outstanding curriculum and pastoral care contribute much to pupils’ excellent personal development and well—being. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good and this reflects pupils’ excellent behaviour and sense of community responsibility. A particular strength is pupils’ cultural development. Pupils benefit from involvement with professionals from the world of music, dance, art and literature. Working with experts from these fields enables pupils to extend their creative and artistic skills. Sport is not forgotten. Through the work of the Schools’ Sport Partnership pupils are enthused to become Involved in sporting activities both inside and outside of school. Those pupils who are gifted and talented in any of these areas have good opportunities to develop their skills even further.
The curriculum and other activities were rated as exceptionally and consistently high by Ofsted in meeting the range of needs and interests of learners at LilleshalI School. They were graded outstanding."
"What a phenomenal year it has been making our
learning fly. Here are some of the highlights of the year:
having a hot air balloon and helicopter land near to our
classroom, being so successful at tag rugby and making
so much progress in literacy. We have been on some
wonderful trips like Jack Field Museum".
"This year has been fantastic’ I have had once in a life
time opportunities, one of which was meeting and
cycling with the GB cycling Coach Craig Ansell.
I have learnt a lot as well such as the chunking method and also
how to add decimals. Raising money for sports relief was fun too”.
“I have really enjoyed Year 5, It has to be the best year yetl
I have reached goals I thought I could never reach, like
calculating ratio in Maths”.
