Curriculum at Long Crendon School
We follow the National Curriculum, and each subject is led by a staff member.
The intentions for our teaching and learning are in our Learning and Development map.
Our English Lead is Ms Jennings and our Maths Lead is Mrs Woodward.
Our Curriculum Intent Statements which give an overview of what is taught, how it is taught and how learning is assessed:
We have rewritten our school PSHE policy in line with the new statutory guidance for RSE in primary schools from Summer 2021. Please read our PSHE policy 2021 and the RSE primary schools guide for parents. Comments from our consultation have been uploaded here.
Comments for Consultation from Parents, Governors, Staff and the Wider Community
It was interesting to read about the elements that the children are to be taught throughout the school. As some of the areas taught could be quite sensitive and lead to further questions at home, will there be a way of knowing exactly what is being taught so that we are ready to follow up? Could the class teacher contact the class rep so that’s WhatsApp could be sent out to forewarn parents?
One thing about remote learning which was positive is that we knew the specifics of what our son was learning and while I hope we never have to go through that again, I do wonder how LCS can support parents to understand more about the specifics of the curriculum rather than referring to the general points in the National Curriculum. Best wishes,

Sex and Relationship Education (SRE)
We have just started a PSHE programme called ‘Jigsaw’ https://www.jigsawpshe.com which is a comprehensive scheme of work that has been produced in line with the DfE recommendation for statutory PSHE (including high quality SRE). There will be further information to follow as well as an information evening for parents (date to be set).
In the meantime, here are some recommended books to generate discussion between parent and child and support the SRE curriculum in school.
Lower Key Stage 2:
‘Where Willy Went’… – Nicholas Allen
‘Mummy Laid An Egg’ – Babette Cole
Upper Key Stage 2:
‘Usbourne Facts of Life, Growing Up’ (All about adolescence, body change and sex) – Susan Meredith and Robyn Gee
These books are all available from local booksellers or online. They are just suggestions and it is up to parents to read them first and assess their suitability for their own child/children.
Outside the Curriculum
At Long Crendon School, we aim to provide a breadth and balance of experiences alongside the curriculum, providing opportunities to participate in local and global community events.
