Curriculum Intent Statement

At Heron, we believe that our curriculum is broad, balanced, inclusive and relevant; it meet the needs of all children whatever their ability. This is achieved through the experience of a range of opportunities so that pupils have the potential to achieve and be the best they can be. It is designed to:

  • recognise children’s prior learning,
  • provide first hand learning experiences,
  • allow the children to develop interpersonal skills,
  • build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.

Our aim is to provide our pupils with knowledge that is transferable.

The curriculum is planned to provide continuity and progression. We believe that children learn best when they can see links and have reasons for learning. Therefore we promote enjoyment of learning through debate, creativity, purpose and relevance. We hope that pupils are motivated by achievement both now and in the future and have a positive attitude towards themselves, others and their environment.

We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use our Drivers to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success. m.
