About Our School
Welcome to our school website! Cooper and Jordan is an outstanding school with a great heritage. Our school is the oldest in Aldridge; dating back to 1718. Today, it is situated in a modern building which was opened in 1971. As a Church of England School, we have close links with Aldridge Parish and our faith underpins the ethos of the school.
Our school prides itself on success and pupils gain excellent results above national standards. It is also important to note that the children enjoy coming to school and gain valuable life skills from a wide and varied curriculum. The school is located in a conservation area and has excellent facilities both inside and outside of the building. All classrooms have interactive white-boards, wrap-around sound systems and DVD players. The school has two halls, an ICT suite, a library and the Ellie Simmonds indoor heated swimming pool. Outside, we have two large playgrounds and extensive playing fields which are also used by members of the local community.
We have high expectations of the behaviour of our pupils and they are very aware of our “good to be green” code of conduct. Pupils throughout the school are encouraged to participate in activities and clubs and enjoy opportunities in leadership, such as running our weekly forum assembly, answering office phones, running the library, supporting younger children on the playground in our buddy and play-leading systems.
We are always striving to improve what we do, from teaching and learning to school dinners and our plans to develop the school grounds further. We also value the support of members of the local community and see our school as a beacon of light in Aldridge. We seek to create strong, positive relationships with families to ensure that all pupils are able to progress well and enjoy their years at the school.
We are always happy to welcome visitors, so that you can see for yourself what we are achieving.
