Lower School

A warm welcome to Lower School!

The Lower School at Combe Pafford is a special and friendly place where we believe that pupils achieve when they are happy and engaged. We strive to ensure that lessons are creative and exciting, with an emphasis on building pupils self-esteem and confidence, laying the foundation for their success at our school.

KS2

In KS2 we follow a tailored creative curriculum which sets out essential coverage, learning objectives and standards which are required for all subjects but that also ensure that what we teach is applicable to our pupils’ abilities and interests.

At Combe Pafford School, we challenge our pupils to become independent, well-rounded individuals who take ownership for their learning. We want our children to be able to apply their knowledge and skill set within school and in real life.

Although each learning journey has a ‘theme’ and links are made between subjects as much as possible, some areas are taught discretely, including all core subjects:

-          English

-          Mathematics

-          Science (Taught by a Science specialist from Year 6, with use of the Lab)

-          I.T

-          R.E

-          P.S.H.E

-          Music (Taught by a Music specialist for all year groups)

-          P.E (Taught by a P.E specialist for all year groups)

Year 7

Year 7 is a transitional year for our pupils, making the bridge between their primary and secondary education smoother by ensuring that children still have the majority of their lessons with their class teacher. 

Year 7 pupils are taught by subject specialist teachers in the following:

-          Science (Taught in the Lab)

-          I.T

-          P.E

-          Art

-          Vocational

-          Life Skills (Cooking element)

We strive to make our curriculum memorable whilst tailoring to meet the wide and complex needs of our pupils. We place great emphasis on working in partnership with parents and carers and should you want more information about the Lower School, please do not hesitate to contact us.
