Cuckney CofE Primary School Dream, Believe, Achieve 'Nothing will be impossible with God' Luke 1:37

Curriculum Governor review visit 24.04.2023 Today I visited school to conduct a review of the curriculum. I met with Mr Greenwood who explained the changes that have happened with respect to curriculum delivery and planning over the last couple of years at Cuckney. It is part of Mr Greenwood’s role to oversee the curriculum. Each teacher also has a responsibility to act as a subject coordinator to monitor the effectiveness of curriculum delivery. When the curriculum changes were initially introduced a coffee morning and Q&A session was held with parents. The system and framework now seems well embedded. School have clear frameworks and a system in place for tracking the curriculum objectives for pupils across all years in the whole school. Class teachers review attainment of objectives and report on this on a termly basis.  This was particularly important for me to understand as a parent, and reassuring to know that, despite spilt year groups and different topic content delivery, the curriculum objectives are tracked, so that the school has a clear idea of what objectives are met and when. This also allows any gaps to be recognised easily. The school has also reviewed the curriculum through an equality, diversity and inclusion lens. Changes have been made to topic delivery to ensure that role models are inclusive and representative of individuals from diverse backgrounds and across the spectrum of protected characteristics. A follow up review will be completed prior to September.

Collective Worship Governor visit 17.11.2022


Today I had the pleasure of joining the school celebration worship led by Mr Greenwood. The children celebrated each other’s achievements and displayed kindness and genuine happiness for others successes. They also celebrated Children in Need and thought about how their monetary contributions would go help others in need. They should be very proud of both their achievements and behaviour.
