Curriculum Drivers

The Copthorne Curriculum has 4 ‘drivers’ which are constantly considered when deciding how and what we teach. These are:

Diversity and Heritage

Creative Opportunities



Underpinning all of these drivers is Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC) through which we further develop our pupils’ understanding and celebration of diversity. This leads to racial tolerance, harmony and understanding.

The Copthorne curriculum has a strong focus on the development of Key Skills through which there must be progression to ensure that every child develops skills at an appropriate level and is challenged.
