At Colebrook Junior School, we look at how we can prepare our young people for a world that will be very different to the one in which we have grown up.
In order to immerse the children in learning that is rich in context, memorable, relevant and challenging, we link our learning in each term to a topic question. Taking care to refer to the National Curriculum, we have made a commitment to innovation and creative thinking.
We encourage our learners to think collaboratively and ask questions about the world around them, to feel motivated to form their own opinions, or empowered to make decisions which will shape their future.
We seek to improve learning through cross curricular opportunities, challenge and enjoyment. We believe strongly that each hour of each day is an opportunity for a child to learn something new or master a skill. Learning is a process with a start point and from that any number of end points, depending on what a child is learning and what stage of learning they are at. Where learning is at its strongest, a child is either developing or mastering new knowledge. Our drive, as a school, is to identify, support and challenge children at all stages of their learning to maximise their individual potential.
The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject. At Colebrook Junior School we work hard to ensure the curriculum is cross curricular, interesting, exciting and relevant ; and one that engages all learners.
