About Heathfield

Welcome to Heathfield, a School where every child and his/her family are important, and where pupils want to work hard and where learning is fun.

Within the overall aims of Rishworth School, at Heathfield we seek:

  • To provide a secure and happy environment where children want to achieve what they are able.
  • To value each child as an individual and to recognise and celebrate his/her attainments.
  • To ensure every child receives his/her full entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum which builds on a solid foundation of Literacy and Numeracy.
  • To work in partnership with parents in order to enhance the work of both children and staff.
  • To build self esteem in order to encourage every child to become an independent learner.

In order to achieve these aims we seek to provide:

  • Small classes.
  • A disciplined, orderly environment based on mutual respect.
  • A dynamic curriculum which is broad and relevant and which is based on, but not bound by, the national guidelines of the Foundation Stage (Nursery/Reception) and National Curriculum (Key Stages 1 and 2).
  • A system of assessment for tracking individual progress and identifying pupils’ needs.
  • A system that celebrates individual achievement.

We believe we have:

  • A warm and friendly atmosphere.
  • An interest in every child.
  • Dedicated staff.
  • Excellent facilities.

We do our best to:

  • Recognise individual success.
  • Develop self-confidence.
  • Keep parents informed of their child’s progress.
  • Encourage pupils to achieve to the best of their ability.
