Our curriculum is creative and balanced, with differentiation to meet individual needs. It is very much a ‘stage not age’ approach to every child’s learning.
Whole school topics are delivered in a variety of learning styles. All staff work and plan together utilising each others strengths for maximum impact on pupils learning and progress. The school aims to challenge and inspire through the curriculum and enhance it with extra curricular activities, trips and visitors and the range changes termly to adapt to children’s interests and needs.
We promote positive attitudes through learning about the variety of cultural, language and heritage backgrounds in the community and beyond. In addition we use our vast outdoors for lessons and are a Forest School, taking the learning outside as much as possible.
The school has a wide range of technology to support and aid teaching. We are also the lead school for High Force Education SCITT and this enhances what we can offer our pupils and ensures excellent practice every day, as we are ‘teaching the teachers’.

At Green Lane we create whole school topics in order to engage the children, enhance the curriculum and encourage a strong team ethos. This year our topics are: ‘Once Upon a Time’; ‘Ingenious Inventions’ and ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’. We plan the topics as a whole team based on the national curriculum and devise exciting ‘launch events’ to inspire and motivate all pupils and staff in their teaching and learning. The following curriculum maps and plans demonstrate what will be taught through the topics over the year.

Our Curriculum in Action
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Green Lane CE Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum section of the SEND Information Report. If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail or please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
