Curriculum Intent


At Copthorne CE Junior School, we prepare our children for lifelong learning by delivering an ambitious, engaging, vibrant and inclusive curriculum.  Through ensuring a progression of knowledge and skills for all learners, our children will become subject experts within a challenging, broad and balanced curriculum. 


Our children are encouraged to gain new knowledge, explore new skills, develop resilience, make connections and so become critical thinkers, who are creative, curious and confident. 


Our Christian values are woven into all aspects of school life and the learning that takes place.  Children become collaborative, respectful and compassionate members of our diverse community.


We believe that when leaving the school, our children will have the tools to be active, independent learners, who take risks, are inquisitive and have a thirst for learning.  This allows them to flourish as they continue on their educational journey.
