Curriculum Intent

At Lindley Junior School, we offer a broad curriculum which is conceptually rich, relevant, and balanced providing a challenging educational journey.  We believe in supporting the emotional and social growth of our children and developing the intellectual, expressive, physical, spiritual, moral, cultural and social skills of pupils of all abilities, within a safe and inclusive environment.


We seek to develop lively, enquiring minds; to prepare pupils for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of life through a high standard of education.  Our curriculum is designed to give all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.  We encourage all pupils to reach the highest standards of personal achievement by recognising, and valuing each child as an individual with their own unique strengths.


We offer creative, enquiry led learning experiences, with enrichment and enterprise opportunities to engage learning.  We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there is a thirst for knowledge and new experiences.


Our curriculum encourages achievement and develops caring and positive attitudes which extend the children's knowledge of themselves and of the world in which they live.  We intend that pupils will develop tolerance, understanding, and respect for the rights and views of others.


Pupils will leave Lindley Junior School with a sense of belonging to their community; have the confidence and skills to make informed choices, through self-evaluation and making connections and, ultimately become life-long learners.
