The Marden Lodge Curriculum

The Marden Lodge  Curriculum

 

At Marden Lodge we have a comprehensive understanding of our community and have designed our curriculum accordingly, to meet the specific needs of the Marden Lodge child.

 

Our vision statement ‘Aim High, Working Hard, Learning Together’ encompasses what we as a school community strive to achieve.  Interwoven into our curriculum are our Six Pillars of Character (Trustworthy, Respect, Responsible, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship) which have been carefully selected to represent the values that we hold great importance to at Marden Lodge.

 

More specifically, the Marden Lodge Curriculum:

 

  • Sets high expectations
  • Inspires and motivates
  • Considers the children’s context and circumstances
  • Strives to close the vocabulary gap
  • Avoids cognitive overload
  • Focuses on depth of learning
  • Involves the whole community
  • Prepares the children for the next phase of their education
  • Equips the children with the knowledge and cultural capital that they need to succeed in life
  • Broadly follows the objectives set out in the National Curriculum
