Here at Lane Green First School we provide a creative curriculum based around the ‘Curriculum Maestro.’

We believe that children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require the children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.

The Lane Green inspirational curriculum is rooted in a classroom environment that nurtures self-motivated learning and ignites in our students, a lifelong interest in the world around them. Our approach to learning provides children with challenge, opportunities to solve problems and apply themselves creatively.


The Lane Green Curriculum:

  • Provides an ambitious offer that delivers the objectives of the national curriculum, that is developed and rooted in Lane Green and the community it serves.
  • Maps a clear learning journey with links to prior and future pathways.
  • Articulates and celebrates shared personal goals for our pupils.
  • Empowers students to answer and ask pertinent questions.
  • Provides experiential learning opportunities facilitated through ‘Find out Friday’
  • Develops globally minded, responsible citizens.
  • Fosters an understanding that with all learning comes opportunity, and that opportunity has endless possibilities.



At Lane Green we articulate the stepping stones of learning with the students so that they own and understand their own learning journey.

Each learning pathway is organised into the following stages:

  • Engage
  • Develop
  • Innovate
  • Express

Engage– At the ‘Engage’ stage, children:

  • get an exciting introduction to the projects
  • begin researching and setting enquiry questions

Develop– At the ‘Develop’ stage, children:

  • compose, make, do, build, investigate and explore.
  • research their own questions and those set by others.

Innovate– At the ‘Innovate’ stage, children:

  • apply skills, knowledge and understanding in real-life and problem-solving contexts.
  • get inspired by imaginative and creative opportunities.

Express– At the ‘Express’ stage, children:

  • become the performers, experts and informers
  • evaluate finished products and processes
  • link what they have learnt to where they started and reflect on their learning journey.
  • celebrate their achievements with parents, peers and our community!
