We are very proud to share and celebrate our school’s bespoke curriculum based on these core values:
We have designed our curriculum for the children at Laycock Primary to be inspired, enthused, engaged and active- not only with the power of their learning, but the power of their life choices within our school, community and wider world. Our curriculum has been created based on the individuality of our local area, our catchment and the current world we live in. We will prepare our children to ask questions, hunt for answers and base decisions on their moral compass. The enquiry based, experiential learning will ignite and develop our children to embody our school values: aspirational, creative, curious, resilient, respectful and friendly. Laycock learners will break barriers, challenge stereotypes, learn from classic and current role models and understand the importance their decision and actions have on life.
Within our curriculum, we pride ourselves on working with and embedding values from the United Nations and British Council to help create active, 21st century citizens capable and passionate to impact and benefit the future.
We also learn about and celebrate over 30 role models which have been hand picked. We made a conscious choice to pick classic and 21st century role models that represent all lifestyles and abilities: ages, race, gender, religion, ability, disability, age, cultural background, lifestyle choices and more. Check out our chosen role models here. Our aim is to eliminate and break any stereotype: we celebrate each and every role model for who they are, not what they are or have achieved. Similar to how we celebrate our children at Laycock.
Here is our curriculum planning: our intent, how we implement it and some examples around our school:
