The curriculum at Hertford Vale is designed to give children as many experiences as possible. We look at the whole child and create a curriculum that not only focuses on the core skills needed to succeed but also at the more creative aspects of the world we live in.
We ensure that the curriculum supports pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare by striking a balance between formal teaching and child centered lessons. By allowing children to shine in other areas such as creative arts, dance, sport and citizenship they are able to function as successful and resilient individuals.
The children in our school make us immensely proud on a daily basis. The experiences they all share are reflective of the community we live in and the wider world beyond Staxton. We prepare the children for their transition from primary to secondary education so that they have every chance of success as they progress through life.
