At Heatherbrook Primary Academy we are proud of our school and our community and we are all, everyday, striving to be the very best that we can. We want our children to be amazed by the world around them, to become curious, to ask incredible questions and get incredible answers, to be problem solvers, thinkers, dreamers and doers and leave our school knowing that so much is possible if they have aspirations and work hard to achieve their goals.
Creating a curriculum that is inspiring, exciting and, more importantly, gives the children access to experiences they would not otherwise have, both inside and outside the classroom is one of our ongoing developments. Developing the use of ‘Heatherbrook Projects’ is exciting and we are now into our third year.
Our wider curriculum reflects our community and that of the wider world. Through the development of skills and acquisition of knowledge we aim to prepare children well for the next stage in their education and to ensure they have the understanding in order to keep themselves and others safe and healthy, both physically and mentally.
Parents will be given advice on how to support the children at home in a way that builds on and enhances the children’s learning in school through the use of knowledge organisers, parent meetings and information sharing sessions.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others. We hold regular information sessions to provide further information to parents and carers throughout the year so we can all work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children at our school.
