Planning for Partial School Opening

PARENT APP UPDATE: If you replied to our earlier email asking for confirmation of your child's name and your preferred contact email, you will shortly receive another email inviting you to log on to the Parent App. This MUST be done on a PC or tablet, not on a mobile phone. Further information about the Parent App can be found here

if you have not yet responded to the first email, please do so as soon as possible. Remember to check you spam/junk folders. Only parents who confirm these details will be invited to log on to the Parent App.

Thank you.


We have issued a new Home Schooling Timetable to help our Year 7,8 and 9 students plan their home learning.

If you are a key worker and require childcare for your son or daughter at Haygrove School because you have no other safe childcare provision, please email stating your child’s name, registration group, parent's name, parent's occupation and the days/times you intend to send your child to school.

STEM Education

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Learning is collaborative and project-based; students work closely together in a hands-on way to solve real-world problems. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning model that is based on real-world applications.

The core themes behind STEM at Haygrove School

Engineering Design

STEM lessons are guided by the engineering design process. The EDP provides a flexible process that takes students from identifying a problem, or a design challenge, to creating and developing a solution. Teams of students try their own research-based ideas, take different approaches, make mistakes, accept and learn from them, and try again. Their focus is on developing solutions to existing problems.

Immersive Education

STEM lessons immerse students in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration. In STEM lessons, the path to learning is open ended, within constraints.  The students’ work is hands-on and collaborative, and decisions about solutions are student-generated. Students communicate to share ideas and redesign their prototypes as needed. They control their own ideas and design their own investigations.


STEM lessons involve students in productive teamwork. Helping students work together from all backgrounds to solve a common goal.


STEM lessons apply mathematics and science content. Students will begin to see that science and maths are not isolated subjects, but work together to solve problems. This adds relevance to their maths and science learning. In STEM, students use technology in appropriate ways and design their own products.

Developing Growth Mind-set & Creativity

STEM lessons allow for multiple right answers and reframe failure as a necessary part of learning. The STEM environment offers rich possibilities for creative solutions. When designing and testing prototypes, teams may flounder and fail to solve the problem. That’s great. They are expected to learn from what went wrong, and try again. Failure is considered a positive step on the way to discovering and designing solutions.
