Black Combe Junior School


Welcome toBlack Combe Junior School


Our Curriculum

Our school motto of “To make every day count” is very much at the heart of our curriculum.  We aim to provide a curriculum 

which incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum as well as being enriched by other experiences and opportunities.  It focusses on providing learning and life opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with high aspirations.  Children who want to make a positive contribution to the school community and wider society.  Developing children’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding through inspirational people is a golden thread that runs through our curriculum.


We plan our curriculum to ensure it has progression, breadth, balance and relevance for the children at BCJS.  We build on prior knowledge and encourage the children to be confident, creative learners who can collaborate, persevere and celebrate their successes.  We feel these qualities are vital to becoming life long, successful learners. However, our curriculum is not solely focused on academic subjects and achievement.  We provide pupils with rich learning experiences, educational visits, residentials, special curriculum events, visitors and extra-curricular activities.  Our aim is “To make every day count” and ensure the children’s time at BCJS is full of great memories.
