Our Learning

THE LEIGH BECK CURRICULUM

At Leigh Beck Infant Academy we are committed to providing our pupils with a vibrant, engaging and creative curriculum which incorporates all of the essential skills to ensure success in every aspect of education and life. We use exciting and current themes as the vehicle to deliver the 2014 New Curriculum. Our curriculum is continually changing and teachers carefully choose themes they know will capture their pupils’ attention and engage them in learning.

Examples of current and previous themes we have covered in our curriculum are:

  • Come dine with me
  • Arctic Explorers
  • London
  • Superheroes
  • Islands
  • Celebrations

Throughout our curriculum we have an eye on an end result: skilled, articulate, strong and well-mannered young people who are able to lead happy, successful lives and can influence others to do the same.  We encourage our children to take on challenges, aim high and not to be afraid to make mistakes as they know this is how they learn.

The New Curriculum at Leigh Beck Infant Academy

The National Curriculum 2014 has been introduced in England. The main aim of this revised curriculum is to raise standards. Although the new curriculum is intended to be more challenging, the content is actually slimmer than the current curriculum, focusing on essential core subject knowledge and skills such as essay writing and computer programming.
