1. Curriculum Statement

Our Ambitious, Contextualised & Broad and Balanced Curriculum


Our curriculum at Leys Primary School prioritises children's acquisition of basic knowledge (e.g. number facts & subject specific vocabulary) and development of key skills, in a range of

well-considered cross-curricular contexts.

Planned experiences, texts and tasks regularly represent & celebrate the diversity of people and communities in our borough



Our school motto, 'Resilience to Achieve; Aspiration to Succeed'

is at the centre of the school's culture, ethos & collective vision.
