At Colley Lane Primary Academy, our curriculum has been designed with the aim of giving children a broad and balanced curriculum which teaches both knowledge and skills. Our ASPIRE approach teaches children the qualities and learning behaviours we want our children to develop and underpins our entire curriculum. These skills of being active, resilient, positive and imaginative learners who give 100% effort and are sure they can improve are built on as children move through our school, helping every child to reach their full academic and personal potential. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you would like to find out any more.
Colley Lane’s curriculum is enriched with a range of trips and experiences across their primary school life. The WAT Pledge underpins this desire to enhance children’s education giving them opportunities and experiences to support their learning. Our curriculum has been designed alongside colleagues in other primary schools, as well as lead practitioners and secondary teachers within our Trust who are specialists in their subject areas. This helps us to build key skills that the children can develop and embed through their primary journey and beyond.
As a result of the above, our aim is to have a curriculum where children have not only acquired knowledge but also the skills to enable them to become life-long learners. Learners who want to challenge themselves, learners who are not afraid to make mistakes and ultimately, learners who love to learn.
