Our curriculum is built upon progressive objectives, which ensure that the foundations for learning are secured, so that achievement is high and every pupil has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Throughout the school, teachers use imaginative and stimulating contexts to secure and challenge pupils’ key skills in Writing, Reading and Maths.
At Cogenhoe Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which prepares our pupils for life in Modern Britain. We adapt our curriculum to meet the needs of its learners, so that pupils continually demonstrate a thirst for learning and are equipped with the necessary skills to become good future citizens. Memorable experiences are also an important feature of our curriculum, and therefore teachers strive to provide these through engaging opportunities, visits and visitors.
We use high quality, stimulating texts to plan and teach our literacy curriculum which then form the basis of a range of opportunties and experiences for our children to apply their newly learnt core skills across a broader range of subjects, including History, Geography and Science. Furthermore, we consistently ensure that Maths is a regular feature of our wider curriculum and allows children to demonstrate their secure understanding of a number of skills. We follow the National Curriculum for all of our foundation subjects, which enables all pupils to be challenged and supported within their daily curriculum learning through clear assessment opportunities.Key objectives are explored in innovative ways and provide further opportunities for pupils to develop their core Maths and Literacy skills in the wider curriculum.
It is paramount to us that we continually communicate with all of our parents throughout the year. All of our staff continually strive to update their year group area on our website on a weekly basis so that parents are able to catch a glipmse of the creative, stimulating learning that has taken place. In addition to this, Termly Newsletters are also reported to parents which fully outline what will be happening over the following term with key dates on to ensure that all children are able to take part. Furthermore, a key aspect of our curriculum is the fact that all of our classes frequently hold celebration days and afternoons where parents are invited into school in order to share some wonderful experiences with their child.
The links below will provide an overview of the core subject objectives being covered throughout the academic year in each class. End of year expectations are the essentials of the National Curriculum that all children should know by the end of each school year.
