Growing faith, challenging minds, discovering talents

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


All children in every year group are entitled to be taught a broad, balanced and interesting curriculum that is matched to their needs, taking into account their previous learning and attainment.


At Higham on the Hill C of E Primary School, we use a curriculum that has been written by subject specialists within the RISE trust; a range of accredited schemes and our own school curriculum. We want to ensure that our curriculum offers the children a rich cultural capital, builds on prior learning and prepares them for the next steps in their education. This balance of schemes, and curriculum content written by subject experts within our trust schools, ensures that we strive for excellence at all times, aiming to inspire and motivate all children through the way we teach, enabling them to flourish and succeed.


Some subjects are taught in blocks (Science, History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology) whereas others are taught regularly through the terms. For further information about this, please see the class timetables and class newsletters.


Our school curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear at our school, including our Christian Values. Values are beliefs or principles that guide the way we think and behave. Our Christian Values are: friendship, courage, wisdom, truthfulness, hope and respect. These are interwoven with the fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

Our Curriculum


Children study all subjects explicitly in the National Curriculum from Year 1. This includes English, Mathematics, Science, RE, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Music, Art and Design Technology, PE and and Personal, Social and Health Education. From the start of Year 3, a Modern Foreign Language is also taught (currently French).


A panel of governors is responsible for monitoring the curriculum we provide and is regularly updated on progress and content.


Further curriculum information is detailed below and parents, carers and members of the community, can also contact the school directly, if necessary, by telephone or email.
