Learning at Cordwalles Junior School

 

THROUGH ALL THAT WE DO WE AIM TO:

  • Ensure that every child is known, treated as an individual and has the best possible chance to succeed and achieve
  • Make learning exciting, enjoyable, relevant and appropriately challenging to build upon what learners already know
  • Plan learning experiences that promote self-esteem, independence, perseverance, self-discipline and a lifelong love of           learning
  • Ensure children feel safe and secure within a caring environment based on mutual respect where everyone is valued and is able to maximise their individual potential
  • Ensure all children are involved as partners in their learning and develop the necessary skills to make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community; developing an awareness of economic well-being
  • Ensure every child is given spiritual and moral guidance and the opportunity to make informed healthy life choices
  • Make parents, guardians and carers and the community aware of the roles they play in children’s learning and actively  welcome their involvement in the life of the school
  • Be welcoming, supportive and approachable to all

Our creative, connected curriculum at Cordwalles Junior School is based on the National Curriculum, with the following amongst its aims:

Interconnected knowledge and skills for lifelong learning– linking learning across the subjects, breaking down barriers and developing common sets of learning skills

Knowing, showing and celebrating success – helping learners recognise the progress they are making through on-going review and reflections.  Collating the broad range of evidence and measures of success

Creating memorable learning experiences– planned and sudden learning experiences within and beyond the classroom

At the heart of this are our pupils, who are

Successful learners – who enjoy learning, making progress and achieving

Confident individuals – who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives

Responsible citizens – who make a positive contribution to society

This is achievable through personalising our curriculum to reflect the uniqueness of our school, and our community.
