The Curriculum Our aim is to ensure pupils leave our school with the essential reading , writing and numerical skills to equip them for the future. Children in school today will work in jobs that don’t exist and use technology that has not yet been invented. Through our Key Skills Curriculum we endeavour to provide a broad and relevant curriculum for our pupils. We aim to develop every child to have self belief, be able to meet the demands of the future, hold transferable skills and positive attitudes, become effective and empathetic communicators, hold literate, numerate and ICT competencies to achieve economic well-being. Which will prepare them for an ever changing world.
Successful Futures “We are committed to making sure all our children get the BEST out of their time at Lamberhead Green and that they are enabled to achieve their full potential. When your child leaves school, the world will be a very different place than it is today. There will be jobs that don’t exist at present and technology that is yet to be invented. It’s our job to equip your child with the skills and attitudes that will provide them with a successful future! I firmly believe that, together, we can provide your child with the future they deserve!” Jane Chambers Headteacher
