About the School
Copper Cliff Public School is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school of approximately 200 students located in Sudbury. In addition, our school also houses three Intensive Support classrooms. Among our many projects, we offer a EarlyOn Centre that has a Before and After School program. The school is closely connected to the community and benefits from the strong support of parents/guardians.
Approach and Philosophy
The mission at Copper Cliff Public School is to enhance the learning and development of the whole child, and to foster an enriching and secure learning environment. With a strong commitment to maintaining a respectful tone within the school, staff members encourage a growth mindset from all learners. The school is family oriented, with strong connections to the community. Staff members show pride in the school and maintain personal connections with older students and graduates.
The staff has established a culture that is open to change, receptive to new strategies, and highly collaborative. Ongoing Learning Cycles work allows our teachers and students to learn with and from one another. Staff are dedicated teachers who know their craft and care about kids. Staff members are passionate about developing and nurturing the whole child.
The school council is a vital link in the ongoing pursuit of the highest quality educational opportunities for students. The council aims to work constructively with administration, staff, and community members to find innovative solutions that support and enhance the school environment.
Raising the Bar. Closing the Gap.
The school has recently placed a greater focus on effective Mathematics instruction. Teachers aim to balance problem-solving while developing mental math strategies. Technology is another focus at CCPS; students are encouraged to use these supports, at school and at home, to demonstrate their learning. Our school is equipped with chromebooks, ipads and SMART board technology to further enhance learning.
Teachers have high expectations for all students and collaborate to determine what supports students need. The school emphasizes integration support and accommodation for students with learning needs. We are very proud of the gains students are making!
