Learning at Pine Ridge and Lorraine Schools
The Federation of Pine Ridge and Lorraine Schools offers a vibrant, broad and balanced curriculum with English forming the backbone to all learning experiences.
Our mission is:
‘To work in partnership inspiring a community in which everyone feels safe, empowered and resilient, becoming a life-long learner’.
In committing to achieve our mission we lead by example in demonstrating the core values of the Federation:
Respect – both for yourself and others
Tolerance – patience and empathy
Trust – the ability to trust, feel safe and secure
Honesty – to be open, honest and true to yourself and others
The curriculum for children between the ages of 2 and 7 years is based on:
The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1, supported by the Cornerstones Curriculum.
Our creative curriculum connects with that of Cordwalles Junior School to create a seamless education for children across the 2 to 11 years age range.
This is achieved through personalising our curriculum to reflect the uniqueness of our school and our community.
Four guiding principles underpin the curriculum:
- Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
- Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
- Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between adults in the setting and parents/carers.
- Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
