At Lion our focus on a language-rich curriculum means that reading is never just limited to reading lessons.

Reading is essential to every subject we teach and is always about inspiring children to develop a love of it. It starts with word reading, phonics and early language acquisition when children are just starting to develop their reading ability. More complex comprehension skills are then developed through the key stages. As always, our key focus on assessment proficiency enables children to discuss, debate and engage with texts in a range of meaningful ways.

Digitised Lessons - end to end curriculum delivery support 

To access the thousands of digitised lessons we use a system called Miro.  Miro is a content-sharing platform that lets teachers make, edit, share and distribute lessons to pupils!


Curriculum maps bring the learning journey to life

What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.


Assessment sheets for every lesson

For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets; we use these to capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
