At Green Lane we adhere to the requirements of the National Curriculum and are committed to maintaining the highest standards of teaching and learning, ensuring our pupils are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their education.
We regularly review our curriculum to ensure it continues to provide a rich and relevant experience.
Our coverage of all subjects, both core and complementary, is broad and thorough and delivered through a range of exciting topics.
Our pupils and parents help to shape the curriculum development by sharing their opinions through questionnaires and discussions.
