At Cockshutt School we aim to deliver a Curriculum that provides inspiring, meaningful, memorable, relevant learning experiences which meet the needs of all the children, creates opportunities for awe and wonder and is balanced across all areas of the National Curriculum.
Our curriculum is based upon the New National Curriculum (2014). We use this to ensure that we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, alongside teaching children the skills they need to enable them to engage fully and contribute positively to the society of the future.
We seek to find opportunities to provide an enriched, inclusive curriculum which the children enjoy and which allows them to achieve their best.
We are a ‘Values’ based school where the values are taught explicitly, enabling children to make informed, thoughtful responses and decisions.
We attempt to put learning into real life contexts when possible and ensure the learning experiences are relevant to the needs of the pupils. Each half term starts with a Wow day when the learning experiences are designed to be memorable and instil the children with awe and wonder about the topic they are going to be studying.
Throughout the term there will be enrichment days and trips to continue to inspire children and make their learning fun. We believe that if children really enjoy their lessons and make a personal link with what they are learning, they will retain the information better and be able to better apply their learning.
