Intent

At Cotton End Forest School, we are committed to providing a creative curriculum which is based on ‘Learning Beyond the Classroom’. This approach is hands-on, broad and balanced, and provides our pupils with opportunities to gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners.

Through a creative, holistic, outdoor-focused approach, we will aim high, striving for every child to achieve highly, both academically and socially. Through learning opportunities in the classroom and beyond, including Forest School, our curriculum will nurture curious minds, stretch imaginations and provide opportunities for every child to become leaders in their own right. We believe that education takes place beyond the walls of the classroom, and we utilise our outdoor space to promote a fully inclusive environment where children feel safe and confident to try new things.

We enjoy a creative approach to the curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. We also link the curriculum to outdoor learning and the children will experience opportunities to learn outside the classroom on a regular basis, alongside timetabled Forest School sessions.

In Eagles class, children continue to develop the skill of working independently and are encouraged to challenge themselves across the curriculum. The children learn through a range of high quality classroom-based activities, as well as a range of outdoor and practical tasks, which cater for all learning styles.

Our Summer topic is Habitats, which has a Science focus. Please click on the link below to access the curriculum overview for Summer term:
