The curriculum is the interaction between the teacher and the learner and, as such transmits attitudes and values, in addition to knowledge, skills and understanding. The Directors,
Governors and staff of Lyndhurst School will create high standards through high expectations, which are at the core of the attitudes and values transmitted through our curriculum delivery.
The school ensures that children have a range of learning experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote thinking and learning. For more information on this please see our Curriculum Policy
At Lyndhurst we pride ourselves on providing an education that is rich in linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical, and aesthetic and creative experiences. To consolidate the learnings the children, have as part of their curriculum, we offer a wide range of carefully planned enrichment activities each term. These activities support the curriculum to promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that pupils enjoy coming to school and acquire a solid base for lifelong learning. We use the best of the National Curriculum and then enhance it so it becomes more skills based, we like to think of it as National Curriculum plus.
By the end of Year 5, the key elements of Eleven Plus entrance have been covered and are consolidated in the first term of Year 6, ready for sitting entrance exams.
