An Extended Day

Our aim is always to help children transform their own perception of their abilities, which in turn can help them transform their futures.

Curriculum overview

At Yarrow Heights, we aim to provide a broad curriculum that enables all pupils to achieve academically, as well as explore new and exciting avenues for learning. To this end, our curriculum is comprised of both traditional core subjects (English, Maths, Science, IT, PE, and Humanities) as well as other, more unique opportunities designed to broaden our pupils’ horizons. For example, our Enrichment programme features activities such as: crocheting and textiles, hair and beauty, foreign language study, pottery making and horticulture.

Another important addition to our curriculum offering is PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, and Economic education), of which each pupil receives two lessons per week. Furthermore, the themes discussed in PSHE lessons are embedded in all aspects of the wider curriculum in order to keep the subject prescient in the pupils’ minds. We feel that PSHE is a fundamental aspect of a broad curriculum, as the issues discussed in these lessons will prepare pupils for life in the wider world.
