Children at Colden Junior and Infant School have been energetically exercising to raise money to improve their playground. All the children took part in a sponsored event which involved a circuit of different exercises. They spent a minute at each activity and kept going for as long as they could. "We are raising money in different ways to improve our playtime provision" said deputy head Gillian Bowes "and the school council thought that a healthy theme to our sponsored event would be appropriate." The Schools Parent Association has been working hard to raise funds for the scheme which has also benefited from donations from the local parish council and Hebden Bridge Rotary Club. With the additional money raised by this event, the school is now able to embark on the first stage of the improvements this summer. The picture shows some Key stage one children at Colden Junior and Infant School taking part in the sponsored exercise event.


"The school’s strategy of planning and delivery through a ‘topic’ approach is very effective. The planning is to a very high standard and successfully overcomes the difficulties that are inherent in small schools. Consequently, the requirements of the National Curriculum and locally agreed syllabus for religious education are met in full and the pupils receive a wide-ranging and challenging diet of educational and personal experiences. There is a good range of well-attended extracurricular clubs, including sporting activities. The use of the local environment and history to raise pupils’ awareness of their heritage and reinforce their learning in all subjects is exemplary."


The Colden curriculum is based around a series of topics which are integrated into the National Curriculum and the new guidance from the qualifications and curriculum authority. We have always believed in a fully integrated curriculum which means that subjects are not taught in isolation, but rather reinforce each other. This ensures that we meet one of our key aims:

to develop flexibility of thinking and a sense of enquiry.

We are interested in a developing a life-long love of learning and our curriculum is designed with this in mind.
