At Latchmere School the children are offered a rich and varied creative curriculum which encompasses the requirements of the National Curriculum as well as the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies.

As a school, we are committed to being at the forefront of educational innovation whilst keeping pupil wellbeing at our heart, thus providing a rich creative curriculum that prepares our pupils to be lifelong independent learners in the 21st Century.

Our creative curriculum includes the National Curriculum core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Religious Education and the foundation subjects of Technology, Art, Geography, History, Music and Physical Education (PE).

Children are assessed regularly as to their progress in these subjects and these assessments provide accurate, accessible information about what pupils know, understand and are able to do.

In addition to the prescribed subjects we offer Latchmere children Personal, Social Health Education with Citizenship (PSHE C), Sex and Relationship Education, Dance and Drama, and French.  Our philosophy of preparing our children to be world citizens has led to a highlighting of global education.

Through careful planning in the long, medium and short term we make sure there is progression, appropriateness of level, breadth, balance and consistency across the new Latchmere creative curriculum. We are committed to the idea that children learn best in a secure, caring, positive and stimulating environment. Our teachers provide well-ordered surroundings and ensure that expectations of behaviour and work are high and are clearly understood by the children. Latchmere children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
