Coley Primary School Curriculum Statement - Learning Today for a Future Tomorrow


At Coley Primary School, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive curriculum that inspires and empowers our children to become confident, inquisitive, and well-rounded individuals. Our curriculum is designed to foster a lifelong love for learning and equip our children with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to thrive in an ever-evolving world, embodying ‘Learning Today for a Future Tomorrow’.


Our Principles:

1. Broad and Balanced: Our curriculum is broad, offering a wide range of subjects and experiences that meet the needs of our children. It is balanced, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to achieve well, from academic subjects to the arts, physical education, and personal development.

2. Personalised Learning: We recognise that every child is unique, with their own strengths and areas for development. We tailor our curriculum to meet individual needs, allowing children to progress by scaffolding and supporting learning and helping children to explore and developing their own their interests.

3. High Expectations: We have high expectations for every child. Through quality teaching and a nurturing environment, we challenge children to reach their full potential, fostering a culture of knowing more and remembering more in all aspects of their education.

4. Real-World Relevance: Our curriculum connects classroom learning to the real world. We emphasise practical and problem-solving skills to prepare children for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

5. Values and Well-Being:  We promote values such as belonging, respect, honesty, curiosity, courage and pride. The well-being of our children is a top priority, and we provide a safe and supportive environment that nurtures their social and emotional development to help them become resilient and responsible children and adults.

6. Cultural Diversity: We celebrate the rich, diverse cultures within our school community. Our curriculum embraces diversity, fosters tolerance, and promotes a global perspective, preparing our children to be informed and compassionate global citizens.

7. Collaboration: We believe that working together, both within and beyond our school community, is key to success. We encourage collaboration among children, staff, parents, and the wider community to enrich the learning experience.



Our curriculum is delivered through innovative and engaging teaching methods that capture the curiosity and enthusiasm of our children. We encourage a growth mindset, where effort and persistence are celebrated, and mistakes are seen as opportunities for learning. We integrate technology, outdoor learning, and extracurricular activities to enhance the learning journey.



We use a range of formative and summative assessment methods to monitor and evaluate progress. Regular feedback informs our teaching practices and enables children to reflect on their own learning journey.


Review and Continuous Improvement:

Our curriculum is under constant review, with input from our stakeholders. We seek to adapt and evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of our children and the demands of the world they will enter.


In summary, at Coley Primary School, our curriculum reflects our commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals who are equipped with the skills, knowledge, and values needed to succeed in an ever-changing world, embracing ‘Learning Today for a Future Tomorrow’. We are dedicated to providing an enriching educational experience that prepares our children for a future full of opportunities and challenges.
