Well Lane Curriculum Statement
 

‘One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world’

 Malala Yousaszai

 

Here at Well Lane, we offer an ambitious, inspiring and rich curriculum which reflects our pupils and our school community.  Our ultimate aim is to enable all our children to realise their strengths, talents and passions.  We know that strong mental health and self-esteem are at the heart of this, so our curriculum is built around fostering wellbeing across our community.  We want our pupils to believe in themselves, to enjoy a sense of humour and not to fear failure. When they believe they can achieve and when they achieve they learn that they are never too small to make a difference.

Linked to this is our belief in the power of reading to transform lives.  We teach our children to learn to read so that they can read to learn - now, in the next stage of their education and throughout their lives.  Through reading, they will not only learn about science, geography and history but about artistry, ideas and people.

Our curriculum recognises that our pupils learn in different ways and have different strengths and challenges.  We speak to them about what helps them learn and give them the independence to choose how to express their understanding, knowledge and skills, where appropriate.  This removes barriers to learning and enables all groups of pupils to reach their potential across our curriculum.

Children leave Well Lane with a sense of belonging where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become life-long learners.
