Ladypool. We have designed a bespoke curriculum that is built around our
school visions, core values and our curriculum drivers.

Core Values:
Respect, Care and Excellence
Our core values are the golden threads which are woven into all we at
Ladypool.


Curriculum Drivers
Aspiration, Identity and Communication

Aspiration
We want our children to be ambitious in their aspirations.
Our curriculum provides our children with the tools, opportunities and
experiences to engage fully and successfully in the ever changing world in
which they live. They have a range of opportunities to work with professionals
who will open up their window to the world.


Identity
At Ladypool we believe that a strong sense of self goes hand in hand with self-esteem and resilience and confidence. These are all ingredients which underpin success. Through our carefully considered curriculum we ensure our students are able to know and understand their contribution to their city, country and the world. We also provide them with the opportunities and skills to consider knowledge from different viewpoints - creating greater tolerance and understanding. 


Communication
Good communication skills enable our children to express themselves socially, emotionally, develop as individuals, engage with others and contribute successfully as members of society. Our children are provided with regular opportunities to debate, present, explain and perform in a sequential and progressive manner.

We have developed our curriculum to meet the requirements of the NationalCurriculum alongside being specific to Ladypool. It is a knowledge rich curriculum which allows our children to continuously build on prior knowledge so that they know more, remember more and can do more.
