Curriculum Support


What we can offer at Highfield

Our children have a range of needs and abilities and all children are supported by quality first teaching within the classroom. This means the curriculum is adapted to meet their needs either by level of support or by resourcing. When additional support is required, we are able to offer a wide range of provision based on every child's unique needs. This includes:

  • In class additional support by a teacher or teaching assistant. Every class has a teaching assistant to help support learning. The class teacher and teaching assistant liaise over planning to ensure that the children’s needs are being met. Having an additional adult tosupport will ensure that children are supported without always having to be taken away from their peers to work in a separate room as this can affect a child’s self esteem.
  • Additional literacy or maths groups to help develop children’s basicskills. This may include writing activities, additional phonics, reading comprehension or maths activities using specific interventions such as TT Rockstars, PIXL and RWI.
  • Handwriting intervention. Every child is different when developing theskills needed to hold a pencil and write. Children will be given support with letter and word spacing, letter formation, developing their writing speed and pencil grip.
  • Social and emotional development sessions with the Pupil Support Worker. These sessions are either 1-1 or in a small group.
  • Sessions with a certified child counsellor.
  • Speech and Language Therapy under advice from the Speech and Language Therapist.
  • Occupational therapy exercises under the advice of the Occupational
  • Transition support for children moving year groups and changing

As mentioned above we offer a range of specific interventions which are based on the needs of the child. These may include:


Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.

Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.


PiXL (which stands for Partners in Excellence, but is commonly referred to as PiXL). Interventions focus on reading comprehension, oracy, writing and maths.


Read Write Inc. provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. Children will have regular RWI sessions in class and some children will receive additional phonics support to help convert a letter or letter group into sounds that are then blended together into a word.

Read Write Inc. Fresh Start is a catch-up and intervention programme for children in Year 5 and 6. It offers a simple but powerful solution to accelerate reading progress in just 25 minutes a day.
