Our Curriculum

At the heart of the Lion Academy Trust is the belief that access to an outstanding education is a right for all our children and young people. To achieve this goal, we have a consistent and continuous focus on developing and implementing outstanding educational practices. We continue to develop innovative and better ways to transform schools into centres of teaching and learning excellence and, as our results show, our robust, quality-driven approach has brought proven results. 

We recognise that Education is the most empowering force in the world. It creates knowledge, builds confidence, and breaks down barriers to opportunity.

For all children, it is the key to which they are able to open the door to a better life.

Our curriculum has been built around several key themes. Learning has to be sequential, and build upon prior knowledge, skills and understanding. This needs to lead to increasing independence and fluency. The development of core literacy skills, particularly reading is fundamental. 

Threaded through this is the idea that ambition and aspiration is not something that is only available to the elite. All children are given the opportunity to learn about fascinating people, wonderful and exotic places, and the wonders of the world . They develop an appreciation of the arts, culture and their heritage.  They are able to discuss and debate the way in which technology allows us to fit our potential and how to do this safely.

Alongside the knowledge and skills embedded throughout the curriculum content, when we were developing this curriculum; we asked ourselves some simple questions. What will children need to be system leaders of the future. The key characteristics of independence, resilience, perseverance, reflective and aspirational are interwoven within the assessment proficiency development of the children.

Our Curriculum and the resources alongside it, is the culmination of years of work by the very best teachers that the trust has. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that all children benefit from the very best curriculum that could be designed. 

We hope you enjoy the journey.
