At Higham Primary School, our curriculum is designed to inspire an enthusiasm for learning and create lifelong learners. Our creative, rich and vibrant curriculum is ambitious and supports pupil well-being and happiness.
Our curriculum is carefully designed to allow pupils to GROW in character, confidence and knowledge as they progress through the school. We want pupils to embrace new challenges and be eager to LEARN striving to do their very best at all times. We aim to foster a culture where pupils BELIEVE in themselves, whilst encouraging and supporting each other. We develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding to enable our pupils to ACHIEVE both academic and personal goals.
Our School Values are: Respect, Teamwork, Perseverance, Responsibility, Kindness and Creativity. These values are intrinsic to all that we do at Higham: child or adult. They are evident throughout the school day in the way we learn and behave. These values are explored through assemblies, curriculum themes and PSHE and underpin our behaviour systems and expectations.
Our inclusive curriculum encompasses not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but goes beyond the experiences of the classroom to ensure that our children are exposed to the richest and most varied opportunities that we can provide. Our aim is to enrich every child's school experience to cultivate an awareness of and interest in the world around them.
We are committed to providing a personalised curriculum with the individual child at the heart of everything we do. Learning is carefully sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught and understood before. It recognises that children will be at different stages of their learning journey and ensures that curriculum planning is tailored to individual needs. We seek to ensure the crucial deepening of essential knowledge, skills and understanding through our curriculum design. We plan and organise our curriculum to ensure that children are not merely covering curriculum content but are achieving a depth to their learning which enables them to apply their skills and understanding across a range of contexts and subjects.
