THE LUNAR CURRICULUM

The Lunar Curriculum has been designed by The Three Saint's Academy Trust, for exclusive use of the Trusts schools. It has been designed to incorporate good practice observed from a range of schools and has been informed by research such as the EEF 'Teaching and Learning Toolkit'.  Parents, children and staff have been consulted during the design of the curriculum so we can ensure that we have designed a curriculum fit for purpose, designed to stretch and challenge and meet the needs of our pupils.  

WHAT IS THE LUNAR CURRICULUM?

The Lunar Curriculum is a pedagogical approach to teaching all subjects that builds upon pupils' interests to inspire learning and make sure it is memorable over time. This curriculum is underpinned by a set of non-negotiables and teaches both key knowledge and skills progressively. Its focus is on pupils knowing and remembering more, building on prior learning so that they leave school ready for secondary education and beyond into their working life. Learning is active and authentic ensuring investment, not just engagement.

PURPOSE 

The purpose of the Lunar Curriculum is to equip pupils with the essential knowledge and skills needed to succeed in life. Each subject is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before, providing a broad and ambitious curriculum.  

In addition to the subject specific skills, the Lunar Curriculum also develops pupils' personal, learning and thinking skills which they need for success in learning and life. The Lunar Curriculum will focus upon the skills below:
