We consider it vital that children are taught in the context of a caring community and therefore the school aims to provide a relaxed yet stimulating environment in which effective learning can take place;
We recognize that children are individuals and consciously seek to develop the potential of each child;
We encourage the children to produce work of quality both in terms of content and presentation, to value and take pride in their achievements;
We aim to provide a caring environment for your child. We offer a wide range of balanced learning opportunities for all children to help them grow into independent and responsible people capable of fulfilling their full potential;
We aim to extend the able child and provide additional support for those with a range of learning difficulties;
We regard it as important that children develop the ability to work together co-operatively and independently in order to have some control over their learning;
We are pro-active in encouraging children to respect, value and appreciate other peoples rights, opinions and ways of living;
We aim to develop the school's role as an intrinsic part of the local community;
We actively encourage the children to extend into their leisure time, interests that they are developing at school;
We aim to encourage the children to become self-confident by involving them in role play activities, productions and assemblies;
We encourage self-discipline;
We encourage the children to take part in educational visits and in community activities both with the school and in their own home;


As required by the Education Reform Act 1988, the following papers and documents about the curriculum and related matters are held at the school and are available for inspection to parents and others. Copies of those papers not covered by copyright will be supplied to parents (a charge may be made) on request.
The Authority's statement of curriculum policy and the Governors' statement of curricular aims, where different.
Circulars and other papers from the Department of Education and Science about the National Curriculum and related matters.
The Authority's procedures for the consideration of complaints about the curriculum.
Schemes of work and syllabuses in school.
Any published reports on the School by Her Majesty's Inspectorate.
It would be most helpful if parents wishing to see or acquire any of these papers would let the School know in advance so that arrangements can be made to have them available.


The School Curriculum
The National Curriculum applies to all children of compulsory school age. In our school we have three stages:
Foundation Stage: Reception and Pre-School Children
Key Stage 1: Year 1 & Year 2 Children
Key Stage 2: Year 3 & Year 4 Children
Key Stage 2:

Continues at Middle School for Years 5 & 6

All children are required to receive a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. The National Curriculum is divided into two aeas:-


1. The Core Subjects

English, Maths, Science, Information and Communication Technology and Religious Education.

These subjects as you might expect, are given the highest priority in curriculum planning. Each subject has programmes of study which clearly state what children should be taught and attainment targets describe expected pupil attainment at various stages in their development.

At Haylands we have also put Personal, Social and Health Education as a core subject as we attach considerable importance to this aspect of a child's development.

Children undertake daily acts of collective worship either as a whole school or in Key Stages. Parents can withdraw their child from these if they wish. We would ask that we are notified of this intention so suitable arrangements can be made.

2. The Foundation Subjects

History, Geography, Art, Music, Physical Education and Design Technology. All children are given opportunities to acquire skills and knowledge in each of these subject areas. During the course of any year we revise the time allocations that we currently give to subjects in order to ensure that the children have the balanced curriculum to which they are all entitled.

Football (Y1 & Y2)
Breakfast & after school club
If parents would like to share a hobby or skill with the children, we would be delighted to hear about it.

Guitar Club (Monday lunchtimes)

A fee is payable each term. Please ask for details.
This club is aimed at Years 3 & 4 with three 20 minute sessions during the lunch hour, in groups of three children per session.

The children will learn to play simple melodies such as 'Frere Jaques' and the 'Can Can', from a Tab Sheet (a simple music sheet written as numbers on lines) and using basic chords (i.e. E Minor and D Major) to accompany songs.

At every stage, children are encouraged to be creative on the guitar and to also write their own songs.


Gardening Club (after school)

Gardening club takes place every Thursday from 3-4pm. It is free and open to all children, whatever the age, ability or sex.

Currently numbers are large and there are almost 30 children who attend on a regular basis, many of whom have been every week.

Gardening club is designed to help the children to appreciate the ground around them and to develop a further understanding of where many of the vegetables we eat come from.

Over the past term we have been very busy. We have planted an immense number of plants, including lettuce, monge tout, runner beans, red cabbage, white cabbage, radishes, onions, purple sprouting broccoli, Swiss chard, carrots, purple cauliflower, yellow cauliflower, white cauliflower, peppers, herbs, chilli’s, courgettes, cucumbers, squashes, sweet corn, baby corn, red tomatoes, pink tomatoes, black tomatoes, yellow tomatoes and the list could go on!

We have even planted some flowers and made hanging baskets and dug up weeds and planted plants, and collected seeds and dried bulbs. There really is no end to what we have already done.

We have a wormary where we turn our left over fruit and vegetables into lovely moist compost.
It even produces some liquid fertilizer that we are looking forward to trying out on our tomatoes.
Each week we all get our hands very dirty, planting weeding and watering, it can be hard work but is really good fun.


Play Zone

PlayZone is part of the extended schools programme at Haylands Primary School.

Haylands Out Of School Club started in 1999 with a very popular Breakfast Club and not long after that we opened an After Schools Club from 3 p.m. till 6 p.m. This club was also very popular for those parents who worked and were unable to collect their children when the main school finished at 3 p.m. In May 2004 we decided to re-launch the clubs giving them a brand new name and image.

We are dedicated to the development of children from 4 years to 8 years in our care and the children's play experiences are based around their development needs. We treat children as individuals and attend to their own special needs.

From the time your child arrives with us they play at their own age abilities. Children like to use the home corner and also enjoy playing with construction toys and educational games; also fine motor activities like drawing, colouring, tracing and discovering the pleasure of play dough, painting and lots of different craft-making. We have use of the hall and we like to play different ball games. The children like playing table tennis, football and basket ball. Children develop new skills they do not realise they have.

During the school holidays we open five days a week. We use the playground and playing fields to play more energetic games from football to rounders. In the summer holidays we have a theme. In 2004 we held our own version of the Olympic Games. In 2005 we went around the World in 6 weeks and in 2006 we were time travellers with our own version of the Tardis from Dr. Who.

We can show DVD's on a large screen and have use of computers in the ICT Suite.

Breakfast Club opens at 7.45am at £1.70 per morning and £2.20 with breakfast.

If you would like further details please call in or telephone the school on I.W. 563372 where our qualified team at PlayZone will be happy to help you.
