|CURRICULUM AND ORGANISATION|
Children who attend Coppice are placed into age group classes. There are two classes in each
year group. Staff at the infant school provides advice and support so transfer is a happy
occasion for the children.
There are 8 classes, 2 in each year group. There can be a maximum of 35 children in each
year group. All classes are supported by various support staff, nursery nurse support,
classroom support staff, bi-lingual support staff, home school liaison officer and a learning
mentor. Parents, students and governors work with the children in the classroom with
guidance from the class teacher.
Children will be taught in different ways in the classroom. They are taught in whole classes,
small groups and individually.
The school aims to provide a relevant, broad and balanced curriculum, which encompasses the
requirements of the National Curriculum and caters for the children’s individual needs.
There are a number of extra-curricular activities offered on a regular basis. During 2005 -
2006 we have continued our involvement in the Sports Co-ordinator Scheme. The school has
achieved the Sports Achievement Award as a result of the good sports activities we provide.
e.g. cricket, football, tennis, hockey, netball and rugby. School clubs also available have been
computer, chess, drama, gardening, homework and First Aid. Please encourage your
child/children to take part in these activities. At Coppice Junior School we believe that
these activities help to broaden your child’s learning and enable them to meet with the
teachers in a more relaxed setting. Some clubs may be limited by number or year group.
