Curriculum

The curriculum at Coton C of E (VC) gives our children opportunities to discover themselves, to challenge themselves and be challenged, to succeed and to fail, to gain mastery over their learning. At Coton our children learn and they flourish. They forgive their mistakes, secure in the understanding that mistakes are the gateways to discover their full range of talents and their particular pathway to success.

The learning and teaching policy underpins the intent of the curriculum and the opportunities provided for children in all curriculum areas. A range of teaching approaches are used, including class teaching, group work and individual, using a variety of teaching methods to suit different learning styles. Opportunities are provided for children to engage in a number of different learning tasks, which extend their ability to work alone or collaboratively on group activities.

Please see the following for more information:

Below you will find details of the curriculum taught in each class.  If you would like to find out more about the curriculum that we follow, please contact the school; the headteacher (John Kett) or any of the class teachers would be happy to talk to you about our curriculum.
 
We currently use the Read, Write, Inc  and Letters and Sounds  for teaching phonics and reading along with the "Oxford Reading Tree" in Key Stage 1.

End of Key Stage Assessment
 
At the end of year 2 and year 6, the children's attainment is assessed and reported to the Local Authority and the Department for Education. Children in year 1 also take a phonics screening test. There is also a times table assessment for children in year 4. All these statutory assessments take place in the summer term. The results of these assessments will be reported to you at the end of the academic year.
 
Children's  attainment is also assessed by their class teacher, based upon the work that they have done in class. This too is reported to the local authority, the DFE and to parents.
 
There will be information evenings later in the year, to which parents in the relevant years will be invited.
