Primary Phase

LCA+ Curriculum Intent

The LCA+ curriculum aims to create:

  • learners who know more and remember more than the national curriculum and the examination and testing content and specification require;
  • engaged learners who are developing better moral, physical, spiritual, emotional and social habits and dispositions;
  • fluent and confident writers and readers;
  • purposeful learners able to use numeracy and critical thinking skills to ask questions and solve problems;
  • passionate learners who know how they learn and who love to learn.
