School Curriculum

The School Curriculum

At Heron Way Primary School we offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
  • prepares children at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life

Curriculum INTENT

Our curriculum at Heron Way uses well thought out and planned learning experiences, encouraging our children to grasp well-chosen knowledge that is built on over time. We have developed a curriculum that challenges the children to transfer their knowledge and skills across different disciplines and concepts. Within our curriculum we ensure that the children have the opportunity to analyse, evaluate, problem solve and be creative. We ensure these key skills are interwoven with knowledge to ensure that the children make sustained progress. Our curriculum empowers children with the knowledge they are entitled to and is structured in such a way that it makes remembering inevitable. The curriculum references to previously studied content and then builds on and develops this previous learning, as well as strengthening the ability to remember.

We extend beyond the academic, technical and vocational aspects of our curriculum; nurturing children to personally develop in many diverse aspects of life.

Maths Planning

At Heron Way, our aim is for all children to enjoy mathematics and have a secure and deep understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures when they leave us to go to secondary school. However, we also want our children to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject.

Aims for our pupils

  • To develop a growth mindset and a positive attitude towards mathematics.
  • To become confident and proficient with number, including fluency with mental calculation and look for connections between numbers.
  • To become problem solvers, who can reason, think logically, work systematically and apply their knowledge of mathematics.
  • To develop their use of mathematical language.
  • To become independent learners and to work co-operatively with others.
  • To appreciate real-life contexts to learning in mathematics.
