Curriculum Information


The attached information represents a flavour of our curriculum, driven by the statutory requirements of both the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage



The school follows the locally agreed syllabus for RE.

Below are the termly information letters sent home to keep parents informed about the term ahead. These plans incorporate both the children’s ideas of what they want to learn and how. As a result of involving the children’s interests as well as capitalising on teacher’s strength, we believe that the curriculum is responsive and engaging year on year.  Have you seen our blogs?

Curriculum information events are held during the year and published on the Update. Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc.

Sports funding.

This is the action plan for spending sports funding allocated by the government as post Olympic legacy funds. The vision behind Highfield’s use of the money is to sow the seeds for future Olympians. In recent years the school is aware of children who have , as a result of being introduced to a minority sport at this school ,  joined golf clubs, fencing clubs and sailing clubs.

In the past year, we continued to provide valuable experiences of horse riding for infant pupils as well as sailing for Upper Junior pupils – both of which were received extremely positively by parents and children.  The funding provided additional specialist coaching for our school football club which increased their confidence when participating in inter-school competition. We have yet to reach Wembley but that continues to be part of our aspiration!

See below for the plans ahead this year!
