Curriculum Overview

'Our curriculum has been designed for the children of Luxulyan School to achieve their academic potential and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life. We aim to provide an education for a connected world with opportunities that inspire creative learning and nurture aspirations; preparing our children to live knowledgeably, responsibly, and safely in a Modern Britain and the Wider World.'


Here at Luxulyan School we provide a broad and balanced curriculum using a number of schemes of work which are outlined on our subject curriculum pages.
We use a variety of resources for our History, Geography and Science Curriculum, all are nationally recognised approaches for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum provides many learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively.
Our curriculum provides a rigorous skills and knowledge framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These skills and knowledge are tied to activities and are age-related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
For Science we follow the PZAZZ curriculum which is taught discretely in order to ensure the progression of skills and knowledge throughout the school.
