At Ferney Lee Primary School we strive to instill a lifelong love of learning. 

We want all of our children to become independent, enquiring thinkers and questioners; to be able to work as part of a team and take responsibility for themselves and their own successes.   

Through our curriculum, we aim to provide them with the building blocks for all future learning. 

Using a thematic approach adapted through the Cornerstones curriculum, we teach topics that encourage an enthusiasm for learning, build on key skills and knowledge and ensure everyone can achieve. 

Our curriculum enables us to celebrate the community around us and the diversity it brings.  It encourages respect for each other through the celebrations of local traditions, cultural and religious festivals as well as actively participating in community projects.  

We celebrate the success of all and work hard to ensure our curriculum is truly inclusive so that every child reaches their full potential, both academically and socially. 

Our Rainbow Values encompass all that we do here and encourage children to be holistic, lifelong learners. We promote positive attitudes to learning and how to use these to overcome challenges they may face in life.   This, in turn, encourages the children at Ferney Lee to be responsible, make the right choices and persevere, even when things get tough.  We inspire a ‘Never give up’ attitude and want all our children to feel safe to be able to make mistakes but learn from them.  

Our enhanced curriculum offers a breadth of opportunities to support and promote every child’s personal development.   Memorable experiences are an intrinsic part of our curriculum, not only to put learning into context but to give our children the chance to explore the wider life experiences that the world has to offer.     

Our aim, for every child, is for them to leave our school feeling a sense of belonging; taking pride in all of their achievements and be ready to take on future challenges with confidence, resilience and ambition. 


At Ferney Lee we aim to engage our children with fun and exciting topics with a range of enrichment activities linked to our learning. 

We offer many out of school visits to enhance our topics.
