Heatherside Infant School

Our Curriculum

Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based.

We want our children to have fun in their learning and therefore they are taught using a cross-curricular thematic approach.  We create whole school themes across the academic year that allow the children to explore either the seven areas of the Foundation Stage or the twelve subjects of the National Curriculum whilst covering the relevant learning objectives for their age group irrespective of the class they are in.

We want your child to engage, enthuse, enjoy and excel by providing your child with a supportive environment that allows them to explore and learn whist becoming confident and independent thinkers.

At Heatherside we follow the programmes of study for each curriculum area.  In Year R the Early Years Foundation Stage can be seen in the Development Matters document and in Years 1 and 2 the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 can be seen in detail by clicking on the curriculum subject area buttons below.
