Lumley is a school where everyone matters and all are welcome. We enjoy and achieve together.
At Lumley Junior School, we aim to provide pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum and develop knowledge, understanding and skills through exciting and stimulating lessons. The curriculum is designed to be ambitious and meet the needs of all learners so that they can succeed in the future. We aim to ensure that pupils gain the knowledge and skills needed for future learning and employment. Our curriculum is personalised to our school to ensure pupils understand their cultural heritage as well as learning to respect that of others.
At Lumley Juniors, we strive not only for academic success but also to build a tradition of respect, good manners, pride in work and sense of responsibility amongst our children. The health and wellbeing of all our pupils is paramount in all that we do in school. We hope they will have lots and lots of fun along their educational journey with us and that Lumley Junior School will be as special to them as they are to us.
Above all else, we want children to be safe, happy and enjoy coming to school.
Across all subjects of our curriculum, teachers plan stimulating, interesting lessons to engage pupils and inspire their learning.Teachers build upon and extend knowledge and skills in all subjects. Curriculum leaders have a clear vision of the progression within their subject and the key skills which are being taught throughout the school.
During lessons, teachers provide a curriculum that is differentiated to children’s needs and allows everyone to make good progress. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and are shown how an ‘I can’ attitude can help them achieve their full potential. Staff use a variety of strategies to check pupil understanding before, during and after lessons to identify misconceptions and provide interventions where necessary. Children receive feedback to help them achieve the next step in their learning.
At Lumley Junior School, each year group’s curriculum builds on prior knowledge and children are offered plenty of opportunities to recap, revise and remember their previous learning before introducing new concepts. We evaluate the effectiveness of our curriculum and constantly seek to identify priorities to be addressed through our School Improvement Plan. By the time children leave Lumley Junior School, they will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge they need for their secondary education and their future career.
The Department for Education state there is a need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.” View our approach to British Values on our website.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Lumley Junior 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 SEN Information Report
