Teaching & Learning at High Legh 


Our curriculum is rooted in local content, yet has a global outlook. The majority of our class topics last for 3 weeks and always begin with an inspirational start, for example during Out of This World topic in Y5 the children visited the High Legh Observatory and in Y1 for their On Safari topic, the children were able to handle invertebrates in their classroom.


Our curriculum overview shows the different topics for each year group. An example of our medium term planning (curriculum content sheets) which are written for each individual topic by the class teacher.

To find out more about individual subjects please follow the link to our curriculum subject page. Here you will find how the subject curriculum is unique to our school, the subject policy, links to SMSC, subject progression and photographs of the subjects in action.


We use an online computer package, designed specifically for our curriculum, called Earwig to continuously assess our children in all subjects. The package also allows us to upload photographs to use as evidence as well as being a nice memory for children and families to have.
