Coppull St. John's Curriculum Intent 2020-2021

The school curriculum at Coppull St. John's is designed to meet the full requirements of the new National Curriculum 2014 and the Early Years Foundation Stage.  It is in line with the curriculum policy statement of Lancashire County Council and the aims and mission statement of the school.

The school's curriculum provides opportunities for learning in both the lessons taught as part of the school day, and the extra-curricular activities which deliberately extend and enhance the 'formal' curriculum.

Children will be taught using a variety of approaches, which will include the teaching of the whole class, working in a small group and working individually.

All subjects are taught in accordance with detailed schemes of work, devised within the school, which meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. Religious Education is provided according to a scheme of work which is approved by the School Governors.

In the Foundation Stage the children learn through play  via continuous provision  areas of experience outlined in the Foundation Stage document.  They incorporate the Early Learning Goals which link the Pre-school years to the beginning of school.  The National Curriculum for all subjects begins in Year 1.

All subjects are taught throughout the school.  We aim to provide a curriculum which is broad and balanced and meets the needs of all the children.

Foundation stage is Reception, Key Stage 1 includes Year 1 and Year 2 children, Key Stage 2 includes Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 children.  The classes have two age groups in them, which means we are able to provide continuity, progression and careful matching of work to the ability of the child.

The effectiveness and appropriateness of the curriculum is reviewed by each subject leader on a regular basis.

School policies and schemes of work are reviewed and monitored by the whole staff through the school development plan.
