A Mayhill Curriculum will:

  • Develop high expectations in every child
  • Celebrate success and individuality
  • Create curiosity and from this, a love of learning
  • Provide children with responsibility and respond to their needs
  • Be challenging and progressive
  • Develop Skills, Knowledge and Understanding
  • Support an outstanding transition programme from Y2 to Y3 and Y6 to Y7

A Mayhill child will:

  • Have high expectations of themselves
  • Take risks
  • Learn to self-manage in preparation for learning at KS3
  • Be able to articulate their learning accurately
  • Relish participating in a wide range of subjects and new experiences.

The Mayhill curriculum follows the statutory national curriculum, but has been personalised to meet the needs of our local community.  Each half term there are topics based around a Learning Challenge and throughout the year there are several trips, workshops and dressing up days.  All year groups participate in an annual production as well as class assemblies and we pride ourselves on having a strong music and sporting curriculum.

Children learn to cook in all year groups in our children’s kitchen, and there are opportunities to learn instruments individually (such as violin) or in a band of four (through Rock Steady).

Our PSHE curriculum, supports the principle that children understand both their rights and their responsibilities and that these change as they grow up.  To make this practical, there are themed days where we learn about other cultures in the UK and abroad as well as additional curriculum opportunities such as first aid training.
