At Lings, we have developed a curriculum that aims to meet the needs and interests of the whole child and individual pupils.  We have established a rich, relevant and purposeful educational experience that has local and national dimensions with a sound foundation in the arts and sporting pursuits. These are focused on the Language of Learning principles and are driven through our 7 learning dispositions which are fostering courage, ambition, enthusiasm, resilience, kindness, respecting others and building confidence.

Our curriculum allows children to build on their learning, progressively acquiring the knowledge and skills needed for the next stage in their education. This means ensuring children are confident in reading, writing and maths, which supports them in fully accessing the broad curriculum and enrichment opportunities available. Pupils are given opportunities to rehearse and embed these skills daily. They are challenged not only to develop their understanding, but to master and articulate it. As a result, our pupils are successful, self-motivated, independent learners who love to learn. A pupil’s own desire to achieve is at the heart of every lesson.

Lings develops the skills and attitudes that help children become life-long learners and succeed in their future. These are embedded in our curriculum and language of learning and celebrated in all classes and in our wider community.

Our pupils’ cultural capital is also built through our determination as a school to offer all children opportunities within our wide curriculum. We strive to offer pupils the best chance to see and take part in a wide range of experiences which broaden their horizons through taking part in sports competitions, work with the RSC and National Gallery, and taking part in music initiatives. These also include enrichment opportunities such as visits out beyond the local community and visitors that support learning, after school clubs and residential trips
