At Heathlands Primary Academy we aim to give every child access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is appropriate to their needs. While in Reception, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. As children move from Reception to Year 1 and until they leave us at the end of Year 6, we follow the National Curriculum.
Our teachers spend a great deal of time researching and discussing what will best work for the child. We have tailored our thinking so that:
the curriculum becomes more creative and exciting
pupils are more motivated and interested in learning and remember what they have learned
pupils are more involved in their learning and take ownership of it
pupils are able to hold discussions at home which enhances parental involvement in their children’s learning.
