Our Curriculum


At Heathfield Primary School we believe that providing our children with opportunities to unlock powerful knowledge is key to preparing them for the next stages of their education.

Our school curriculum embraces the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework and the National Curriculum providing a strong foundation on which to build resilient, resourceful and independent learners. The wide range of carefully considered knowledge, skills and experiences we want the children at Heathfield to receive, practise and embed will allow them to know more, do more and remember more.

We strive to empower children to be active global citizens who are able to take control of positive decision-making in their own lives, and support those around them. We believe that our curriculum should provide children with the opportunities to aspire to be more, in an environment which is rooted in our values and respect for each other.

We aim to achieve this though a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum, which provides children with the knowledge and skills that they need to be open to their future possibilities. Our curriculum is driven by the aim to enable children to understand the cultural context of where they are, so that they can be inspired by the opportunities around them. Our cross-curricular approach allows children to make meaningful links with their learning, build on prior knowledge and aspire for their future. Our school equips children with the ability to hone their knowledge and skills so that they may be inquisitive and aspirational. When children leave Heathfield, they have the awareness and initiative to achieve their full potential, rooted in our values of respect and kindness.


To ensure effective delivery of the curriculum, the statutory requirements for each subject within a key stage are identified and cross-curricular links are harnessed to provide cohesion within units of learning. Progression is achieved by identifying the skills and knowledge that children need over time; these are outlined in our progression grids for each subject which contain carefully chosen components crucial for subsequent learning. These elements are delivered through well taught and appropriately sequenced lessons which are then assessed.


School evaluates how well our children are learning the content outlined in the curriculum through:

• School progress data which is analysed by SLT, middle and subject leaders and class teachers

• Book looks

• Lesson observations and learning walks

• Pupil/parent voice 

The impact of the curriculum is that children are well-motivated and engaged in their education with a growing knowledge base which prepares them for effective transition for their next stage in learning and equips them for life.
