As an Academy we are required to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to include English, Maths and Science and to make provision for the teaching of Religious Education. Beyond this we have the freedom to design a curriculum which meets the pupils’ needs, aspirations and interests (DfE 2012).
At Lincoln Carlton Academy we use our wonderful inspiring curriculum, which engages your child in enjoying their learning and achieving their potential. We plan our curriculum around exciting themes which the whole school focus on at the same time. We call this our ‘Creative Curriculum’.
We plan each theme alongside what we call our “Recipe for Success”. The Recipe for Success includes what we believe are the key ‘ingredients’ that ensures the best learning for young children. The recipe includes things like a ‘WOW’ factor, visits and visitors, a rich learning environment and books and films to engage and inspire children.
The Foundation Stage is from birth to 5 years. This includes Nursery and Reception. In our Reception setting, children continue to have many opportunities for child initiated activities and independent learning as well as a more formal approach to reading, writing and maths.

Key Stage one is from 5 to 7 years. This includes Year one and Year two.

Uniform is strongly encouraged, though not compulsory. We like to see children well presented and smart and ready for learning.

Your child will be responsible for their own uniform and at such a young age things do sometimes get lost. Make sure everything is labelled or sign up to get some name labels for your child’s uniform! If you sign up with Stikins please enter the code 35505 as we will get some commission on sales of these labels. Thank you!
Hot lunches are available to all the children at our school in line with the Governments pledge to give a free school meal to all foundation stage and key stage 1 children. Our Chef creates nutritious and healthy dinners from our own fully fitted catering kitchen. The children have a choice of dinners and help Chef to create some mouth watering menus! Parents and children can make meal choices using a paper menu, via email or using the link on our newsletter.
Children in foundation stage receive free milk daily and all children receive a piece of fruit each day until they leave Year 2. Water is available to all children at all times through the use of their own water bottle which are kept in the classroom. Please make sure your child brings a named water bottle with fresh water in each day.
Children are looked after at lunchtime by our lunchtime playworkers.
The school expects good attendance and this is defined as 95% or above. If your child is ill and not well enough to come to school, parents are asked to inform us by telephone before the start of the school day.
The Department for Children Schools and Families asks that parents are informed that absence for family holidays can be approved only if there are special reasons which warrant the holiday and that parents do not have an automatic entitlement to take their child out of school for a holiday. If there are exceptional circumstances then parents are asked to make an appointment with the Headteacher before a holiday is booked, in order for authorisation to be considered.
Mount Street Academy is part of the network of National Teaching Schools. We work with several strategic partners to take a leading role in staff training and development to help raise standards in education.
In essence Teaching Schools do three things:
1. Provide support for trainee teachers, leaders and other colleagues in schools by working as part of a partnership.
2. Provide support for schools that are facing challenging circumstances.
3. Make an important contribution to the wider system by working to create a network of schools that work in partnership to deliver both these agendas.
KYRA is the teaching school alliance based at Mount Street Academy. For more information please visit the KYRA website: http://kyrateachingschool.com
