‘We believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum.’
At Hethersett VC Primary School the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.
Our curriculum enables learners to develop knowledge and skills overtime. Learning is purposeful and enjoyable and is delivered through (when appropriate) cross-curricular projects that engage young minds and provide coherent subject progression.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. We use the 5Rs (Responsibility, Resilience, Readiness, Resourcefulness and Reflectiveness) to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed for learning and future success.
Our Christian Values encourage creativity, compassion and responsibility; alongside learning wisdom, knowledge and skills. Truthfulness and friendship shape our inclusive education.
Children leave the Hethersett VC Primary School with a sense of belonging to a community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
Children throughout their time at Hethersett VC Primary School are entitled to educational visits to enhance their learning. Visitors will also be used to enrich opportunities and experiences.
