At Lodge, we encourage our pupils to share and value others because of their uniqueness, whilst celebrating and appreciating difference in our school community. Our children are encouraged to be active, responsible team players who care about each other and all members of our society.
Through our curriculum, all of our children are encouraged to be enthusiastic and curious, take ownership of their learning and be fully engaged children with a lifelong love of learning. Our aim is to provide our pupils with a rich, broad and balanced curriculum which equips them with the skills, knowledge and understanding to be successful in life. Children at Lodge are encouraged to have high aspirations and pursue their dreams. We seek to inspire pupils by linking their learning with the world of work and higher education.
We use a range of local and national resources and schemes to help us underpin a curriculum which is designed for all, despite different starting points. We recognise the importance of core curriculum skills throughout our foundation curriculum and where possible we teach lessons in a cross-curricular way. Throughout our curriculum, we make best use of assessment information to enable our pupils to reach goals and beyond through challenge from adults, their peers and themselves.
Our curriculum features many enrichment experiences and children are provided with lessons where they get to express their ideas and learning through arts. We aim also to take your child out of the classroom to enhance their learning experience whenever possible. We do this by organising trips and enrichment opportunities.
