Welcome to our Curriculum page
Our school motto is ‘Learning today.. Leading tomorrow; we believe every child has the potential to be whatever they want to be. We have high aspirations and high expectations of them all. A primary school’s job is to prepare pupils for secondary school and as such we want to give our pupils experience in as many different aspects of learning as possible. When they leave us at the end of Year 6 we want them to want to learn more, to be curious and inquisitive. Therefore, it is necessary that we open their minds to so many different possibilities. We strive to provide an excellent education for all our pupils within a caring, stimulating and motivating learning environment.
At The Leys we offer a stimulating well-resourced environment and aim to develop our children’s independence as learners through The Leys Learning Pathways.
