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 - treating others how you wish to be treated

  • Try your best - always try your best for every task

  • Succeed - know it takes hard work and lots of practice to achieve your goals

 

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:

  1. Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
     
  2. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
