Government legislation requires pupils at certain ages to undertake Core and Foundation subjects. Here at Coates Lane, we aim to ensure that our curriculum is balanced, broadly based and:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils
  • fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum
  • prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life

The Core subjects are English (Literacy), Mathematics (Numeracy) and Science.

The Foundation subjects are History, Geography, Design Technology, Computing, Music, Art and Design, Modern Foreign Languages and Physical Education.

The National Curriculum sets Programmes of Study in all subjects for pupils at various stages of their school career, but it is left to schools to plan schemes of work to deliver the programme of study.

We believe that we offer pupils the very best opportunities to learn through a stimulating and varied curriculum, combined with innovative and carefully planned teaching and learning opportunities.
