Cop Lane School was founded in 1828 and moved to its present site in 1878. We are a voluntary aided Church of England School and value greatly our link with St. Mary’s Parish Church in Penwortham and our sister school at Howick. The Vicar, the Rev. Christopher Nelson is chair of the governing body and regular visitor to the school. We welcome children of all denominations and faiths into our community and value the contributions they make to the diverse cultural life of the school.
- To deliver a high quality education in a welcoming, friendly and supportive environment where Christian values are central to the ethos of the school and its teaching,
- To have consistently high expectations which encourage each child to achieve their maximum potential, regardless of faith, gender, race or ethnicity,
- To provide a stimulating and caring environment where self-discipline, respect for others and good manners are valued and encouraged,
- To continually foster positive links with parents, governors, children and staff, enabling the school to play a positive role in the wider community in which it is placed,
- To create an ethos where achievement, in its widest sense of the word, is celebrated, where individuals are valued and a life-long love of learning is fostered.
We provide the range of subjects in line with those required in the National Curriculum. They comprise the core subjects Mathematics, English, ICT and Science, plus the foundation subjects of, History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Citizenship PHSE and P.E. In addition Religious Education is given following the Blackburn diocese syllabus. Collective worship is held for the whole school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and separately for infants and juniors during the rest of the week. Parents are reminded that they have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education and Collective Worship should they so desire. Please contact the Headteacher so that alternative arrangements can be made.
The children are taught in seven separate age related classes, Reception and Years 1 to 6. Children in the Reception class are housed in a spacious modernised area complete with its own toilet accommodation, a separate practical area and conservatory. A nursery nurse works alongside the teacher for the majority of the time the children are in school. Other support staff divide their time between the remaining classes. The junior children occupy four classrooms to the rear of the main building. In addition to their class teacher the children will work with teaching assistants and part time teachers who work alongside the class teacher.
