Like all State schools, we follow the National Curriculum. This provides the structure for all we do. The National Curriculum clearly lays down in law 'What has to be learned' by each child. It is made up of three 'Core' subjects and seven 'Foundation' subjects, all of which contain prescribed programmes of study and attainment targets. Children in Class 1 work at 'Key Stage One' programmes of study, which are assessed at seven years of age [Key Stage 1 Standard Assessment Tests and Tasks or SATs], whilst in Class 2 children work at 'Key Stage Two? programmes of study and this is assessed at eleven years of age [Key Stage 2 Standard Assessment Tests and Tasks or SATs].
Full details of the National Curriculum structure and how it is covered at Lamerton are available from the Headteacher if required.
We have adopted the 'Devon Curriculum Statement' as the Curriculum Statement of the school. These aims, and the personal qualities they help to develop, form the basis of the children's education at Lamerton.
