It is our vision that children who attend Heathfield Primary and Nursery School will become life-long learners. The curriculum at Heathfield has been designed to promote children’s creativity and the development of skills to enable them to have an enriching, enjoyable and successful education.

Curriculum Narrative

The principal aim of the school is for all children to enjoy and achieve within an ethos of learning, harmony, mutual support and respect.

Heathfield has a long track record of high-quality engaging education for children in Nottingham through memorable first hand experiences.

Our curriculum stems from understanding our children’s needs and contexts, their knowledge and skills.

Our curriculum, guided by the Heathfield Pledge, is:

  • ambitious
  • broad and balanced
  • creative
  • nurturing

Our Early Years provision at Heathfield sets solid foundations for the development of the whole child bringing to life a nurturing and stimulating learning experience which, with a focus on early literacy and maths skills, ensures they are school ready.

With children at the heart, we offer an enriched curriculum designed to make learning meaningful; delivered through quality first teaching.  Our creative topics immerse children into high-quality texts and vocabulary to foster a love of reading.

The curriculum is sequenced to ensure progression across all year groups and subject areas and is guided by timely and effective assessment and intervention in a variety of forms. It is strengthened by our CPD pathway for staff. The climate for learning and high expectations of everyone at Heathfield allows children to enjoy and achieve, in a safe and supportive environment, from often low starting points to comparing favourably to national outcomes at the end of year 6.  They are able to apply their skills and knowledge in order to leave Heathfield equipped to successfully access their next stage in learning and to go on to be good citizens who make a positive contribution.
