Cookridge Primary’s ethos statement underlies everything we do and is the basis of our curriculum offer. At Cookridge Primary we are passionate about making a difference every day and believe that our children should be at the heart of everything we do. The environment and curriculum we provide creates learning that is fun, active and personalised, inspiring all to achieve their very best.
We pride ourselves on our broad and balanced curriculum and offer a creative cross-curricular approach which is imaginative, exciting and actively contributes to the learning experiences of all our children. To make the learning relevant, cross-curricular links are made wherever possible and children are encouraged to apply skills from all areas to complete real-life challenges, investigations and broaden their depth of learning.
We teach all lessons using a carousel approach, this enables teachers to employ a variety of teaching strategies personalised to the children, with an emphasis on creativity and independence to motivate and encourage a life-long love of learning. We aim to support children to be resilient, well rounded, self-confident independent learners.
Our PE, Art and modern foreign languages (Spanish) provision is enhanced by specialist teachers.
English and Maths skills are taught daily to ensure our children become competent and proficient learners. English and Maths are also embraced through topic work to ensure children have the opportunity to tackle real life relevant situations with increased confidence. Our children are taught a range of computing skills and are provided with opportunities to enhance their programming skills as well as using technology creatively across the curriculum.
