At Oaklands Primary School, our curriculum is designed to ensure our young people leave us with high aspirations: they will know how to make a positive contribution to their community and be ready to take on responsibilities in their wider society.At the heart of our success are the Oaklands’ core values:
- A clear focus on reading, writing and maths: firm foundations ensure future achievement and academic success.
- Fostering fluency in social communication; ensuring every child has a voice that can be heard, and the ability to create their own socially supportive networks.
- Enabling and encouraging pupils to choose healthy and safe lifestyles: actively opting to promote their own physical, mental and interpersonal health and adopting the habits of lifelong learning.
- Building on the National Curriculum, we offer a range of exciting and purposeful experiences as a context for deep and meaningful learning across all subject areas encouraging pupils’ logical, analytical, inquisitive and creative thinking. These enable our pupils to master key skills and accumulate knowledge with real-world value and application. Pupils acquire, develop, practise and refine these skills through a balance of collaborative and independent activity within a rich indoor and outdoor learning environment. Learning is driven forwards by engaging teaching, attentive assessment, and carefully considered progression through the Oaklands’ curriculum that is matched to our pupil’s development and interests.
We aim to challenge all learners through rich curricular and extra-curricular opportunities so that they become resilient problem-solvers who are critical, creative, risk-taking thinkers. We encourage them to be self-motivated, determined and independent in their approach to achieving their goals, both now and in the future.
Our pupils demonstrate their understanding of the world, different cultures and individual differences through mutual respect and acceptance. In our happy, inclusive and nurturing community, sufficient flexibility exists to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to thrive, belong, succeed and discover who they truly are.
We provide our children with an exciting, broad and rich curriculum that inspires learning. If you require any further information, please contact Miss Smith through the school office.
