Curriculum design is an ongoing Coton priority. We continue to invest significant time and resource into building a broad and comprehensive curriculum that provides continuity, ensures clear progression in both knowledge and skills and focuses on strong pupil engagement.
Our curriculum provides opportunities for our children to develop into well-rounded individuals who are ready for each stage in their learning journey. Where possible, the school grounds, the local environment, themed days, educational visits and visitors to the school contribute greatly to a curriculum relevant to the children’s experience.
The statutory national curriculum is taught across Key Stages 1 and 2 (National Curriculum 2014) and, for many of the foundation subjects, is supported by the overarching framework of the Cornerstones Maestro Curriculum. Cornerstones is an ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum which provides a strong foundation for further personalisation and development.
Our curriculum aims to build on latest research from cognitive science about how children learn best and how memory works to ensure that children are taught in a way that ensures learning is embedded in their long-term memory.
