At Leeds and Broomfield we follow the national curriculum. If you want to know more about this go to the government website at www.gov.uk/national-curriculum.
To have a better understanding of what your child will be learning across the year, please view the documents on this page. Teachers have produced long-term plans for year groups to show how and when topics will be taught.
Classes are set up in the following year groups:

At Leeds & Broomfield we value the importance of teaching children the knowledge, understanding and skills to become healthy, happy individuals who can form positive relationships and keep themselves and others safe. While being a Christian school our ethos also actively promotes our British Values and we teach children to become positive British citizens who can understand and contribute to our democratic, diverse and tolerant society. We use various opportunities to explicitly teach children the values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Respect and Tolerance for those of different faiths and with different beliefs.
We have weekly, 15 minute class meetings where important issues are discussed and all the voices and opinions of every child, is heard. These are sometimes led by our school council members.
The children also take part in teacher directed PSHE lessons, where a variety of topics have been covered, for example: goal setting; personal reflection; British Values; understanding empathy; understanding cultural diversity, in Britain and in other countries; reflecting on personal identity and what impacts this (cultural influences); considering what success is and thinking about different ways to ‘connect’ with others and yourself; dealing with change; going green, health and fitness, personal values and explicit British values learning.
The whole school also takes part in and acknowledges different themed days/weeks throughout the year, such as:
Pupils produce work based on these themes and have collective worship sessions where we, as a school, come together to learn and reflect.
Our British Values are strongly celebrated through displays in all classrooms and public areas and we have class books showing the learning and development in children’s understanding and application of these values.
We welcome everyone to our school that celebrates the similarities that unite us and the differences which enrich us.
