Here at Cockton Hill Junior School we believe in delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. We structure our curriculum around the National Curriculum 2014 and supplement it further with activities and topics that interest and motivate our pupils.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which has been developed in line with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. This incorporates the following Subject Areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Art, Physical Education and French. Through each of these subjects, we encourage children to become independent learners by nurturing and developing their investigative and problem solving skills in a wide range of activities. Children are also encouraged to monitor and evaluate their own learning, to become actively engaged in their education. Children are regularly assessed to ensure their targets are appropriate and they are continually stretched to be the best that they can be.
We update the ‘Our Learning Blog ’ section of the website regularly to demonstrate all of our learning across the school. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require further information.
More Able and Talented Children
In our school, we have pupils at the top end of their ability range in their year group. These children are known as ‘More Able and Talented.’ Every teacher at Cockton Hill Junior School provides these children with additional challenges in their particular strength, to enhance their educational achievement. We work together with the children to ensure all children’s needs are met by providing inclusive, happy environments. Teachers will discuss with parents and carers children who are placed on our ‘More Able and Talented’ register. Additional provision will be explained during parents’ consultation evenings.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Cockton hill Junior School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
Further information can be found in the Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum section of the SEND Information Report. If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
