Curriculum Approach

Curriculum Aims

 

Our Curriculum is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) or high needs, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We provide a ‘Backpack’ for life for each Mesne Lea child, filled with knowledge, skills, experiences, personal attributes and ultimately, an understanding about the world around them which will enable them to thrive and have the confidence and courage to achieve their best in all they do- whilst at Mesne Lea and beyond.

 

At Mesne Lea the curriculum is based on the following key principles.:

 

  • having a sense of curiosity about the world locally, nationally and globally
  • raising aspirations and pride within our children
  • developing personal skills of vocabulary, language and oracy to take an active role in the wider world
  • understanding the impact and influence of significant individuals, inventions, places, processes, times, changes and development, with a specific focus on Walkden, Salford and Manchester.

By the time our pupils leave Mesne Lea, we want to ensure that they have high aspirations for themselves and that they are starting to plan how they will achieve them. Through strengthening links with our local community, we want to provide our pupils with knowledge of global communities, enterprise opportunities, financial planning skills and the leadership skills required to compete in a global market.
The impact of our curriculum will be evident through classroom observations, pupil voice, books and through the use of both formative and summative assessments


A Mesne Lea child will:


• be engaged and engrossed in their learning
• have a sense of pride in their work and their learning behaviour
• be resilient, determined and willing to take risks in their learning.
• Be honest
• understand and confidently use sophisticated vocabulary.
• will be kind and understand and be respectful of differences in culture, beliefs and society
• ask questions about the world – locally, nationally and globally
• be ambitious
• know and remember more about significant individuals, inventions, places, processes, times, changes and development, with a specific focus on Walkden, Salford and Manchester.
