The Heritage Coast Federation


The Federation Curriculum plan


Our Federation offers a broad and stimulating curriculum following national guidelines.


We are very proud of the progress our children make and we work hard to develop children’s awareness of citizenship and a healthy life style. 


We firmly believe in developing the whole child and all other subjects in the curriculum are given equal weighting to ensure breadth and balance is achieved.


Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

EYFS children are introduced to a play based learning curriculum. The Early Years Curriculum is divided into seven areas of learning and development;


Three Prime Areas

Personal Social & Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication & Language.


Four Specific Areas

Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.


- Our phonics lessons are taught daily and follow the letters and sounds planning.

- Work is sent to practice at home to reinforce the phonics being taught that week.

- Children's progress through the phonic phases is carefully tracked with reading books corresponding to the phase that the children are currently on.

- Our reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree and Oxford Project X as a core scheme.



Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 (KS2)

In Key Stages 1 & 2 the National Curriculum is divided into Core and Foundation Subjects. English, Mathematics, Science, Religious Education and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are the core subjects, but are taught with the other subjects through a thematic approach via our creative curriculum. The foundation subjects are History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education, Modern Foreign Languages and Personal, Social and Health Education.


Cross curricular links are exploited wherever possible and the subjects are brought to life by class and whole school projects, performances, real life experiences, visits, visitors and events. We are proud of the curriculum we provide. The school has also been awarded the Gold Artsmark award to recognise the high emphasis placed upon the arts in school.


Children are taught about how to keep safe, how to deal with their emotions and develop relationships.


The school believes visits provide an opportunity to extend children’s learning and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. We have many visits in the local area making use of our beautiful natural locality (beach, foreshore, the moors) and we also take the children further afield as they get older. Recent visits have included a residential visit to Boggle Hole, East Barnby and London. The curriculum is further enriched by visitors who are invited into school to talk about their work or run workshops.


- The curriculum is the total of all learning experiences provided by the school for your children.

- We aim to provide a broad, well-balanced curriculum at all stages through which all children will realise their full potential and develop individual talents, interests and skills.
