Welcome to Laycock Primary School, in Islington.
We have designed our curriculum for the children at Laycock Primary to be inspired, enthused, engaged and active- not only with the power of their learning, but the power of their life choices within our school, community and wider world. We aspire to revolutionise each subject within our curriculum to ensure our children gain cultural capital, a wide variety of exposure to happenings around the world and first-hand experience which is crucial to all learners.

Our curriculum has been created based on the individuality of our local area, our community and the current world we live in. We will prepare our children to ask questions, hunt for answers and base decisions on their moral compass.

Our enquiry based, experiential learning will ignite and develop our children to embody our school values: aspirational, creative, curious, resilient, respectful and friendly.

As a school, we have a responsibility to drive towards equality. We believe that the diversity of our school and families strengthens our school’s community and ensures we promote, teach and enable equity. We vow to be reflective and stay on top of current issues of the world that we live in. Our curriculum has been inspired by a ‘windows and mirror’ analogy: we plan and strive to allow opportunities, also known as ‘windows’, for children to view into the experiences of others. We also plan and strive for representation, also known as ‘mirrors’, to reflect individuals and ensure our children see themselves in and around our school. This gives us new ways of seeing kinder ways of living and wider ways of being.

Additionally, we pride ourselves on working with and embedding values from the United Nations and British Council to help create active, 21st Century learners being capable and passionate to impact and benefit the future. To achieve this, a large focus of our curriculum has been looking at our curriculum through a ‘social justice lens’ to ensure that all of our pupils are represented and acknowledged in our teaching to ensure learning is relevant to them as young people living in London.

Laycock learners will break barriers, challenge stereotypes, learn from classic and current role models and understand the importance their decision and actions have on life.
