Learners for Life

Curriculum Content

The Coppice Curriculum 

We use the National Curriculum as a basis for our school curriculum. This includes :

  • Themes and topics which provide exciting learning journeys that bring the National Curriculum to life. Our topics celebrate the best of World and British culture e.g. Shakespeare, Duke Ellington, Mary Anning, Nelson Mandela and Edward Munch. FBV and SMSC are planned into these topics in meaningful ways.
  • The North Yorkshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. This covers learning about the major world religions.

Personal Development Curriculum

We teach children the skills and knowledge to realise their talents, develop their character and build their resilience. They learn about British Values, Diversity and Mental Health & Wellbeing. We achieve this through:

  • The Coppice 50 are special learning activities we have planned into each year group, linking to topics where possible, that provide our children with essential social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning. These special opportunities enrich our children's academic education, allowing them to develop a deeper appreciation for nature, cultures and traditions or to develop vital personal and social skills. For instance, we visit the theatre, the countryside and various places of worship. We learn the skills of first aid, growing and preparing food, taking public transport and bike riding. We learn about social responsibility by supporting local, national and global charities and getting involved in local politics.
  • Personal, Social and Health Education delivered using the North Yorkshire PSHE Curriculum entitlement framework. Here are links to the National Curriculum and the North Yorkshire RE Agreed Syllabus.

Each class page has planning for the particular year group and term on their own pages. These are found on each class page.
