Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum Vision


Our curriculum at Coten End promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and understanding and a love of learning. It covers a wide range of subjects and provides opportunities for academic, technical and sporting excellence. It has a very positive impact on all pupils’ behaviour and safety, and contributes very well to pupils’ academic achievement, their physical well-being, and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. In lessons, teachers strive to engage and include all pupils with work that is challenging enough and that meets the pupils’ needs as identified by teachers.


“Learning for everyone, learning from everyone.”


To achieve this vision we aim:


  • To enable us all to be receptive, self motivated and confident in our learning.

  • To encourage the development of all our skills in a safe, stimulating and rewarding learning environment.

  • To celebrate the achievements of ourselves and others.

  • To nurture a caring school environment where there is trust, respect and honesty.

  • To encourage and support families’ involvement in learning inside and outside of school.

  • To develop a positive self image and pride in ourselves and our school.

  • To involve the local, national and global community in our learning.

  • To provide an outdoor learning environment that promotes creativity and enjoyment.

  • To prepare learners to be responsible members of our diverse society.

  • To promote positive social, emotional, spiritual and cultural values.

  • To foster children’s independence and sense of personal responsibility.

  • To encourage children to develop a love of learning.

  • To promote high standards in reading, writing and mathematics.

  • To enable children to acquire knowledge and skills in science.
  • To enable children to be confident in the use of ICT.
