At Coddington C of E Primary and Nursery School we believe in developing the whole child. Through our teaching we aim to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives and to provide them with high quality learning experiences that lead to a consistently high level of pupil achievement. We maintain that learning should be challenging and exciting for everyone. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences, embedded in high expectations, help children to lead happy and rewarding lives. This will lead to aspirations and high ambitions in their future lives.

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.

Curriculum Vision


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.
