At Hyde Heath we offer the children a broad and stimulating curriculum – based on national requirements but so much more! We have spent considerable time researching how children best learn, and considering what we want our children, here at Hyde Heath, to experience to become the best they can be. With the help of such research as Tim Taylor's ' The Mantle of the Expert'; Floyd Woodrow's 'The Compass for Life' and Chris Quigley's Essentials Curriculum we continue to develop a bespoke curriculum for our children. We also offer a wide range of enrichment days, trips and visitors to extend their learning further.
Children in the Reception Year follow the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Year 1 and 2 pupils follow the Key Stage 1 Revised National Curriculum (2013), comprising Mathematics, English, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Physical Education (PE), Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), Religious Education (RE), Art, Design & Technology and Music.
The school follows a Topic Based Approach, which inspires the children and their teachers, whilst ensuring a strong foundation in reading, writing and mathematics within a broad framework.
Ofsted praised the school for its curriculum. "The highly creative curriculum inspires and motivates pupils. There is a tight framework for progression over which teachers plan exciting activities which stem from the pupils’ interests."
