Overview by Year Group
Heathmere’s curriculum vision is for children’s learning to be purposeful, empowering them to be ambitious for their future.
The curriculum is carefully planned to make links between different subjects, while following the National Curriculum.
Each topic is designed to be interesting and engaging – as well as teaching subject knowledge and skills. The Learning Skills of Adaptability, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Leadership, Problem Solving and Teamwork underpin how we teach our wider curriculum.
Topic OverviewAn outline of the current topics is set out here. We are constantly looking to improve our curriculum so this may be subject to change. Please use these as a guide to what is being taught.
Specialists are used to deliver Art, Dance, Gymnastics, Music and Swimming which supports the curriculum to be purposeful and high quality. Children also take part in lots of exciting school trips and have attend residential visits in Year 5 to Juniper Hall and Year 6 to Kingswood.
The locally agreed syllabus is used to deliver Religious Education.
The Heathmere Relationships Education Policy (hyperlink to Relationships Education Policy document) has been written using Wandsworth guidance and is taught across all year groups using this framework.
An Inclusive Curriculum
Heathmere is an inclusive school and all aspects of the curriculum are made accessible to every child, regardless of any special need or disability. Reasonable adjustments will be made to ensure all children feel included in all aspects of the curriculum.
