Here at Coddington we provide a creative broad and balanced curriculum.
With the new National Curriculum having been introduced by the Government in (2014-15) we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils.
What is the basis of our curriculum?
Our Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the new 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our new curriculum will be delivered through Thematic Learning Projects, which will provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts.
Our new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum. Cornerstones also provide a rigorous essential skills framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These essential skills are tied to activities and are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
At Coddington, we want our knowledge rich curriculum to be relevant to our
pupils’ context, environment and interests. Where possible we will make links
with the local environment and local history.
We value our pupils’ interests and seek to engage pupils with quality texts to
inspire writing linked to curriculum learning.
We are a Church of England School and we will weave our seven Rainbow
Values throughout our curriculum. We ensure we are developing the pupils’
personal, social, emotional and spiritual understanding.
Teachers start with the interests of the pupils by assessing the pupils’
knowledge, prior to planning the units of work, to ensure it is appropriate,
challenging and engaging for all pupils.
Using the information in this book, teachers are able to address the key skills
and concepts that we have decided as a school that all pupils must know before
they leave Coddington.
We aim to build challenge for all pupils. We will track all groups of vulnerable
pupils through school to close the attainment gap, giving all pupils the
opportunity to be successful.
By the time pupils leave Coddington Primary School, we want them to have a
broad and deep understanding of all areas of the National curriculum. We want
the pupils to understand how this relates to their local context.
We want all pupils to be able to be caring, empathetic and self-motivated. We
want all pupils to demonstrate an understanding and a warmth to all groups in
society regardless of faith, sexuality or disability.
Curriculum Overview for each Year Group
We follow the Read Write Inc scheme in our daily phonics practice. We are supported by the Witham St Hughs English Hub and we are keen to ensure our phonics provision is outstanding for all.
We provide the children with decodable phonics books, following the Read Write Inc scheme, weekly for home reading. We also provide the children with additional books, with a range of genres, to enhance our ‘Reading for Pleasure’ offer at Coddington. We are passionate about making sure every child becomes a life -long reader.
