Lockyer's Middle School

Curriculum Overview

Our broad and balanced curriculum is designed to allow all the pupils at Lockyer's not only to develop their understanding but to encourage their independence and curiosity about the world around them.  Where possible, we have endeavoured to develop cross-curricular links so pupils can develop their skills across a variety of subjects.  We are also developing theme days where pupils become immersed in a topic - for example, Pirate Day in Year 5 introduced the topic of Britain Through Boats.  We have also introduced IWAC (Independent Writing Across the Curriculum) books which allow pupils to demonstrate their literacy skills across a wide range of subjects and these books will stay with pupils throughout their time at Lockyer's.

Learning at Lockyer's is underpinned by our Rights Respecting ethos.  We endeavour to ensure that pupils leave us a thoughtful, creative and confident young people who are able to make a positive contribution on a local, national and international scale.

You will find on our website a curriculum map for each year group which will contain information about the topics covered throughout each term.  The curriculum maps ensure coverage of all aspects of the new National Curriculum for Key Stages 2 and 3 (in collaboration with our First and Upper Schools); this can be viewed here.
