At Coupe Green, we believe that every individual has their own unique and special talents which need to be nurtured and built upon. Staff take time to gain a true understanding of the children’s needs to allow them to create a personalised curriculum.
We believe children have the right to:
- A highly relevant and meaningful curriculum, differentiated and well matched to individual needs which enables them to become successful, independent learners and flourish in the 21st century society.
- Be inspired and challenged to want to achieve their best in all areas of learning and take risks without fear of failure.
- Develop the skills of enquiry, creative thinking, reasoning, problem solving, information processing and evaluation across all aspects of the curriculum.
- Develop a high regard for themselves and others, learning to control and manage their own feelings and behaviours as well as respond appropriately to the needs and feelings of others
- Choice and opportunity to become fully immersed in self-directed learning.
Our children will be motivated to learn in an environment which is stimulating and safe where they are encouraged to:
- Be curious
- Be knowledgeable
- Be adventurous
- Be ambitious
- Be creative
- Be collaborative
- Be reflective
- Be positive

All members of our school community are learners. People like to learn in a variety of ways whether it be visual, auditory or kinaesthetic. We may prefer a combination of learning styles. We plan opportunities to cater for a range of learning styles. For example, some children learn by looking at numbers, others may like to feel and play with numbers in the sand or some children may like to hear and sing about numbers in order to remember them.
Children learn best when it is fun. We create a learning environment that excites the children, engages them in the interesting themes and allows them to take risks. We promote the ethos that it is acceptable to fail because sometimes our best learning takes place when we make mistakes and learn from them.
We like to give the children a wide variety of experiences. We organise visitors for the pupils. This may include specific events, subject specialists, professionals from different cultures and religions as well as members of the local community who have knowledge to bring topics alive! The children attend a number of trips each year.
We ensure we meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. The children are taught the skills, knowledge and understanding through different themes over the year. Within the themes there are lead subjects which drive the key learning and provide fantastic opportunities for cross-curricular teaching. Where subjects do not link to the theme they are taught as stand-alone subjects for the term. We teach the following subjects:
- Design and Technology
- Physical Education
- French Modern Foreign Languages – Key Stage 2
- Religious Education
