- Build on pupils’ prior experience
- Make links with the wider world
- Challenge assumed ideas and opinions
- Empathise with other communities
The curriculum at Langton Green Primary School is designed to build and expand on our pupils’ prior experience and knowledge of the world. We value each child’s contributions to the school community and support them to form connections and links between their own experiences, skills and knowledge and those developed in school, and the wider world as a whole.
However, the school also recognises its role as a safe place for challenging and exploring ideas and opinions. We teach our pupils to question the world around them and to rigorously challenge the opinions that they hold. Through doing this, we also ensure that our children learn to empathise with other communities, including those of different nationality, faith, race, wealth or lifestyle. We believe that every pupil at Langton Green Primary School should aspire to be an independent, resilient and active citizen of the world.

We value a high standard of knowledge in each of the subjects of our curriculum, from staff and pupils.
