At Copnor, we aim to fully prepare our pupils for life in Modern Britain. Our job is to equip our pupils with the necessary skills, knowledge and attributes so that they can make choices about how they might contribute to this society. We want our children to be aspirational and strive in all aspects of their lives. This aspiration needs to start at primary school and we work hard to embed our Learning Values and British Values within all of our curriculum.
Pupils need to master the full range of skills in English, Maths and Computing and then have real opportunities to apply these skills. For this reason, we timetable English and Maths in the morning and plan fast paced, child-centred sessions with a focus on learning; NOT teaching.
Our curriculum is designed to engage learners and make all learning relevant and purposeful. Half-termly topics start with an exciting 'hook' and end with a learning 'outcome'. Lead subjects of Science, History and Geography drive these topics so that learning is deepened, rather than compartmentalised. Trips and visitors are carefully planned to broaden the children's experiences within these topics.
