Welcome to Costessey Junior School

The Costessey Curriculum

The Costessey Experience

The Costessey School curriculum has been carefully designed to achieve the following aims:

  • All children should learn essential knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the next stage in their learning.
  • Children should develop an understanding of a broad range of curriculum subjects.
  • All children should be challenged, engaged and have input into their learning.
  • Underpinning this is the belief that we should support the personal qualities children need to be good global citizens.

We use the Ruth Miskin ‘Read Write Inc’ scheme for phonics across EYFS and KS1. Children in KS2 may also have access to Read Write Inc if they need further consolidation. More information on Read Write Inc can be found at  https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/programmes/phonics/

Parental Involvement

At Costessey, we value the contribution that parents make to their children’s learning. Therefore, every half term parents receive more detailed curriculum information along with suggestions as to how they can support their child’s learning. This information can be found under the year group tabs in the ‘Learning’ section. Parents have the opportunity to attend a homework gallery each half term during which we showcase work from across the curriculum. Parents can also visit their child’s class twice a year for Parents Evening, where they can look at their child’s work and talk to the class teacher.

If you have any questions about our curriculum or your child’s learning please do not hesitate to speak to the class teacher or contact us.
