At Kirton Lane, our curriculum is underpinned by our aims to provide all pupils with knowledge and skills that can be applied to the future challenges they are likely to face. We do this by ensuring there is purpose to learning and opportunities for application – demonstrating to our community that they can achieve.

Throughout the wide ranging experiences we endeavor to give all our children, is our determination to encourage their resilience, perseverance, originality, pride and bravery (characteristics that have been chosen by our pupils). We want our children to aspire to achieve their best, be able to bounce-back from setbacks and learn from mistakes.

Our curriculum is equally designed to support our pupils to manage their emotions, deal with conflict, solve problems and understand others’ perspectives. Serving the deprived yet ambitious community we do, we are determined to ensure our curriculum is geared to ensuring equitable experiences for all – ultimately raising the ambitions and opportunities of our Stainforth community.
