Curriculum Intent

Curriculum Intent


The School caters for children aged between 7 and 11 years who follow the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Underpinning our curriculum is our statement:


            'We seek to provide a Christian ethos and education which promotes the all round development of

              each child and enables them to achieve success and gain a sense of self worth’.


St Laurence Church Junior School offers a broad and balanced curriculum which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


Topics are chosen to inspire and engage the children, making learning interesting, creative and challenging.  Inspiration activites, trips, visitors and practical elements offer real experiences for children to engage in the topic theme.  This theme is then applied across a range of subjects, so that children, across the key stage will cover objectives in all subjects of the national curriculum.  Children will have opportunities to develop and broaden their understanding and are encouraged to excel, whatever their ability.


Our aim is to motivate children to become confident, independent learners with an enthusiasm and love of learning. We also hope to inspire each and every child to become a respectable, caring, socially competent member of society, equipping them with the skills to adapt to an ever changing world.


General information about our curriculum can be found on this page of our website, within our school prospectus or from Year Group pages and Year Group Newsletters.
