Curriculum Overview

Our immersive Curriculum

Our immersive curriculum prepares children for life in modern Britain. We teach a broad and balanced range of subjects incorporating the National Curriculum: English, mathematics, science, computing, history, geography, design technology, art and design, music, drama, dance, PE, languages, religious education and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) are taught to all pupils.  Whilst maths and PE are taught discreetly, we used a theme based approach to incorporate the other subjects.

At Loughton School, we promote British Values, fairness and equality through our PSHE curriculum, our assembly schedules and through a supportive, inclusive culture across the school.

Our close links with Loughton Manor and Glastonbury Thorn feeder schools ensure that our year 3 curriculum builds on the knowledge which pupils have learned previously helping them to know more and remember more. The curriculum is purposefully planned and then personalised to cater for all children. We continue to set challenging and enjoyable work at an appropriate level for pupils’ ability throughout their time with us.

Termly topic webs

With each termly year group newsletter, we send our parents/carers the appropriate topic web for their child's year group via ParentMail, but if you would like to download these at any other time of the year please just click on the appropriate topic web below.

These have now been updated for 2023-24.

We use 'insight' as our assessment tracking system and share all judgements made with parents at our parent consultation evenings and in the end of year report for their child. Our teacher assessments are informed by test results.

  • Reading - at the end of each full term
  • Writing - at the end of each independent piece
  • Maths - at the end of each half term
  • Science - at the end of each unit
  • Foundation subjects - ongoing formative assessments are made
