Why Choose Northumberland Heath Primary

Northumberland Heath Primary values the relationships it holds with children, their families, the school and wider communities in order to secure the best outcomes for children at each stage in their primary learning journey.  We pride ourselves on our commitment to communication and inclusion for all and value the contributions made by our children’s parents and carers.

We believe children learn best when:  

  • learning activities are well planned, ensuring progress;
  • high expectations are in place for all learners;  
  • teaching and learning activities enthuse, engage and motivate children to learn, and foster their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning;  
  • assessment informs teaching so that there is provision for support, repetition and extension of learning for each child, at each level of attainment;  
  • the learning environment is ordered, the atmosphere is purposeful, and children feel safe;
  • there are strong links between home and school, and the importance of parental involvement in their children’s learning is recognised, valued and developed.

Our bespoke curriculum is celebrated through Big Bang Days which provide the hook and engagement to children culminating in an end of term celebration whereby parents/carers are invited to attend Family Learning sessions.

We are also committed to providing an excellent extra-curricular offer with engaging, fun and ambitious programme of opportunities.

"The facilities for intervention at Northumberland Heath are excellent. The Sunshine Room, the development of the additional Rainbow Room, alcoves that house curriculum interventions and another tented space means that there are numerous systems to meet the therapeutic needs of learners; both in terms of responsive approaches and planned preventative programmes."
