Our curriculum sits first with in our locality. In our school we believe that ‘context’ is unique to the pupils and members of the community. We are a rural school and our curriculum embraces the outdoors. We teach the children first about their local area, community responsibility, and how each of them as individuals have a unique role to play. We believe that if children have a deep understanding of their local area and heritage they will be able to apply that learning on a national and international level. Our curriculum encourages children to ask questions, share opinions and listen to one another. We promote open mindedness and life long learning.
We have a rich curriculum here in Cockshutt School which is always developing to meet the needs of every pupil in our care. There are opportunities for you to get involved too so watch out for notifications via our school app. Learning is an adventure all the way through life and we want our children to be excited from the start. Have a look at the long term plans and policies for our subjects below.

This is a time each week where children can share their work with the Headteacher and talk about their learning. It’s a great session to hear children's ideas about how we can move learning forward in our school. It is also a time to reflect on which learning has been the most enjoyable or challenging. We do a lot of celebrating and the children are given a certificate and a sticker at the end of the session. We have also been known to share a biscuit or two because every good meeting has refreshments.
