At Heron, we follow the requirements of the National Curriculum and have developed our curriculum to enable all children to succeed in their academic and personal development. We believe that our curriculum is broad, balanced, inclusive and relevant; it meets the needs of all children, whatever their ability. This is achieved through the experience of a range of opportunities so that children have the potential to achieve and be the best that they can be.
We strongly believe that all children need the support of parents and teachers to make good progress in school therefore we strive to build positive links with the parents of each child by keeping them informed about the way in which the children are being taught and how well each child is progressing.
At Heron Primary School our definition of progress is; the widening and deepening of essential knowledge, skills, understanding and learning behaviours. We design, organise and plan our curriculum to ensure that children are not merely covering content but achieving a depth to their learning which enables them to use their skills and understanding in all areas of the curriculum.
If you would like to find out more about our curriculum please talk to your child's class teacher in the first instance.
