Our aim at Laude San Pedro is to provide an environment for each and every child where they feel safe, happy and motivated to learn. As a Primary school, it is important that we provide the most secure foundations from which each child can fulfil their potential, both academically and within their personal wellbeing.
In order to achieve this aim, our Primary school follows the British structure for education which focuses on children’s developmental readiness for learning, and at each stage, the structure allows the children to build and extend their knowledge, skills and understanding.
The Primary school has three distinct phases:
Through creative play, children develop language and personal, social and intellectual skills whilst exploring their environment and emotions. Within the seven areas of learning, teachers observe and assess children in order to create individualised programmes to enhance their learning experiences.
Our intention at this key stage is to build secure foundations for learning as a platform for success. The curriculum is designed to balance both academic and creative subjects with breadth of study. Students are introduced to a range of new learning experiences whilst still being nurtured as young individuals at the beginning of their learning journey.
At this key stage, we are developing confident, independent learners. Depth of knowledge, skills and understanding continue to be developed through literacy, numeracy and project-based learning. Students have the opportunity to select a third language, which they will continue to study during their secondary education. Students take on extra responsibilities as members of the school community.
Within each of our stages, you will see how we offer a range of learning opportunities for breadth and balance academically whilst ensuring we nurture each unique individual.
