Lovers' Lane Enquiry Curriculum


The curriculum at Lovers' Lane is based on the National Curriculum expectations and  age-related skills and knowledge outlined in Focus Learning Challenge Curriculum (Clive Davis) and has been adapted to meet the needs of children in our school. Our curriculum builds on prior learning in ALL subjects and develops their substantive and disciplinary knowledge. Our curriculum ensures that enquiry is at the heart it, and reflects the need for our pupils to learn to enquire about the wider world, rather than just experiencing the town they live in. Our children learn about different cultures and benefit from first hand experiences. Our children also learn about ways to keep themselves safe and to make healthy choices, so we have designed our curriculum with these important factors in mind.


If you have any questions about the curriculum at Lovers' Lane and what we teach please contact the school directly. 


Our curriculum intent is clear:


  • To provide pupils with experiences and knowledge beyond Newark to increase pupils’ aspirations. (social mobility)
  • To increase life skills and enable pupils to make choices that will keep them safe.  (aspire to succeed)
  • To increase pupils’ vocabulary through a language rich environment, role modelling and first hand learning experiences.
  • To increase knowledge through frequent recall and application of key facts and information
  • To ensure that all pupils have equal opportunities to thrive especially boys, PP and WB FSM boys.
