Our curriculum is exciting and engaging and uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the National Curriculum 2014 to ensure that learning is relevant and fun and children make high levels of progress.

At Hallam Fields we aim to ensure that each and every child develops a lifelong love for learning where everyone is encouraged to reach their potential whatever their ability. Our children are nurtured and inspired so that they flourish.

Our ambitious curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and goes above and beyond expectations. It is broad and balanced, fully inclusive, vocabulary rich and clearly identifies the key knowledge we want our children to learn. It is sequentially planned, considering what the children have learnt before and what they will be learning in the future.

Our curriculum includes a wide range of enrichment opportunities both within and beyond the school day extending the range of children’s experiences to build cultural capital through trips, visitors, assemblies and by engaging in local and global competitions and projects.

Through our Lionheart Teaching and Learning Principles we use pedagogical approaches to learning, and evidence generated through research, to ensure we maximise children’s learning potential. Using our ‘I do, We do, You do’ approach, children are engaged in a teaching cycle of explicit instruction, deliberate practice, application and then most importantly review and feedback so that they succeed.

Please see individual year group curriculum maps for a more detailed overview of the curriculum taught each term.

We want our children to enjoy coming to school, to feel safe and welcomed and be brave, inquisitive and confident learners. This ethos is underpinned by the schools' learning behaviours represented by the 6Rs:‘Respect, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Resilience, Reflection, Reciprocity’

Hallam Field's moto is: ‘Nurture, Inspire, Flourish … Together we shine’

Our school culture is further promoted through the Lionheart Trusts vision: ‘Excellence for All’
