The Curriculum at Mackie Hill

Putting our children at the heart of our curriculum


At Mackie Hill Junior and Infants School, we encourage our children to have high aspirations and strive for the best. We want our children to be responsible, self-confident and connected to the world in which they live by the time they finish their journey at Mackie Hill and progress onto the next exciting stage in their lives.


Our main aim is to provide a curriculum that is uniquely relevant to our children and provide them with a vast range of experiences that will excite, stimulate and enable them to become confident and successful learners. We carefully plan and deliver each topic with children at the heart of the planning stage. Children can explore and contribute their own ideas and are encouraged to direct their own learning. We want our children to be inquisitive and passionate about learning and be adventurous in the acquisition of new skills and knowledge.
