Children at Herons’ Moor Academy enjoy a varied and exciting curriculum. Herons’ Moor Academy’s curriculum is taken from the National Curriculum, offering students a varied and exciting learning experience.

Herons’ Moor follows a creative curriculum approach and our lessons are designed to support children’s natural curiosity and stimulate their creativity. We recognise different children learn in different ways and we include all of these elements in our lesson planning.
