Analysing, connecting and evaluating are the higher order skills we seek to develop in our curriculum. In order to ask meaningful questions, we know that it is essential that children understand the key concepts in every subject and theme that they study. We use a carefully sequenced curriculum that is based around the principles of cognitive science to ensure that all our pupils can access their lessons and link their current learning to prior learning. Our children enjoy explaining what they are learning to us and keenly talk about their lessons with us and visitors to our school.
We know that achievement for every child will look different. Ensuring that, at Langer, every child has equal access to learning and makes progress is vital. This often means that we need to make reasonable adjustments to our curriculum and provision in order to be fully inclusive. We celebrate all the achievements (academic, social, sporting, creative and social and emotional achievements) of our pupils in order to ensure they all develop into confident young people with very big aspirations.
