Cockerham Curriculum Intent
At Cockerham Parochial Church of England Primary School our intention is to develop happy young people with enquiring minds, a spirit of curiosity and respect for others. Pupils learn to take responsibility for themselves, their actions and for the environment. Through developing the ability to challenge themselves, take risks and persevere, we encourage them to develop the knowledge, skills, resilience and adaptability which will equip them to thrive in a rapidly changing world and contribute to the well-being of their community. Through careful planning which follows the National Curriculum, we aim to equip our pupils with learning skills which will embed enthusiasm and develop a lifelong love of learning. An engaging and creative approach, rich and varied experiences, including learning beyond the classroom, enable every child to achieve and flourish in all areas of school life, making the progress of which they are capable. This is underpinned by our school Christian vision:
‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’. Philippians 4:13
‘Where a love of learning grows.’
Through our Christian ethos and values, we encourage pupils to be ambitious, achieve their aspirations and become the best they can be. We celebrate the uniqueness of individuals and promote the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of all within a harmonious, enabling, and empowering whole school family.
