The curriculum at Hollyfield is designed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum, Birmingham Local Authority Curriculum Statement and the specific pastoral and academic needs of our children.
The children in Reception follow the Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage (see Foundation Stage Prospectus) that is designed with specific areas of learning for this age group.
Our Curriculum is delivered through a mainly topic-based approach in the early years. In Key Stage One and Two the curriculum is taught through a combination of cross-curricular themes and subject specific approaches. Our work is carefully structured so that each year the children’s knowledge and skills are reinforced and extended.
At Hollyfield Primary School, we aim to provide a safe and happy learning environment which empowers all children to develop independence, positive attitudes and an awareness of their community and world responsibilities.
We will achieve this by providing an inspiring and challenging environment which develops lifelong learning as well as engaging children on a personalised learning journey to excellence.
