Our Curriculum Intent for Langton Primary School
At Langton, we believe in Education for Life. We see our children thrive in our caring small village school set in a beautiful location on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Our aim is to ensure our children have aspirations and are well preparedfor the future – to move into adult life with confidence in order to be part of the national and global community. Likewise, we make the most of our local environment and encourage parental and community engagement. Through this, we nurture their personal characteristics such as strength, resilienceand enthusiasm for learning. We teach an engaging topic-based curriculum which provides opportunities for ALL our children to experience the world beyond the classroom – to share life experiencesand gain an understanding of cultural diversityin an ever-changing world.
