Our Curriculum


At Cupernham Junior School, our curriculum aims to help all of our children to ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’ across the wide range of opportunities that the school presents to them. We aim to ensure that every child grows and flourishes; we know that happy, confident children with a strong sense of self-worth are more likely to grow into happy, confident adults. We have excellent relationships within the school and work tirelessly to ensure that all children’s personal needs are met.


We aim to help the children develop the knowledge and attributes they need to be effective learners and develop a strong work ethic, including on areas that may be potential barriers to their success. We put a strong emphasis on all children developing the social skills, learning attributes and attitudes they will need to be successful. We use Building Learning Power to develop these learning attributes and support children’s understanding of their personal learning strengths.


Our curriculum is broad and balanced to provide rich and memorable learning experiences. We want our curriculum to ensure that every child has the knowledge, understanding and skills to achieve well in their next school and beyond. We seek to develop the children’s aspirations and ensure that all children are successful and achieve highly in a wider range of areas. The curriculum is structured to promote progression and develop knowledge and skills in each curriculum area which reinforce and complement each other.


We deliver our curriculum through subject areas. We want to develop the future designers, artists, geographers etc so it is important that children develop a strong understanding of the subjects and their uniqueness over time. Where appropriate, links are made to enhance the learning and enable learners to make purposeful connections across subject areas. Trips, visitors, special days and weeks are all used to enhance the curriculum and child’s engagement.


All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of all children, including those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those with higher attainment and the children who are learning English as an additional language.


Our curriculum design acknowledges:

  • The core vision and values of the school by being broad and balanced and developing the whole child
  • That children need to be taught the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to be successful learners across the curriculum subjects in a progressive way
  • That children need to be taught how to be effective learners - we do this through developing their Building Learning Power
  • The importance of the children’s personal and social development, including learning how to make reasoned decisions and knowing how to stay safe
