At Miriam Lord we strive to ‘Build Powerful Learners’. Our vision statement is that ‘We will create an environment where every single child embraces learning and achieves the highest outcomes. We want to inspire pupils to enjoy learning, feel successful in whatever they do and have the skills and character needed to face any challenge and make a positive contribution to society.’
Our curriculum is ambitious and driven by the need to prepare pupils to become successful life-long learners. Central to this is our drive to instill a love of reading, books and literature into all pupils so that they are able to access the opportunities life will present them with. We want to develop learners who are inquisitive, not afraid to ask questions and who challenge knowledge.
Through our curriculum we aim to develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding that are the building blocks for later life; an important aspect of this is identifying pupils’ talents and seizing opportunities to develop these further. We know the importance of language and want to develop pupils who have the vocabulary and social skills to interact effectively.
