Curriculum Intent at Oakwood Primary Academy
We will ensure that all children are able to thrive through quality learning experiences, ensuring their readiness for the next stage in their learning.
At Discovery Multi Academy Trust the curriculum is designed to provide wide-ranging experiences and contexts which allow our children to develop the skills and knowledge to allow them to become resilient, reflective and creative thinkers. Through an engaging STEM-based approach to learning, our children will collaborate and be able to fulfil their wider role in their community. They will have the skills to make connections in what they have learnt, self-evaluate and develop a desire to learn as they go to their next stage of learning.
Our curriculum is designed to develop a growth mindset approach to learning to promote independence and the ability to respond positively to learning challenges.
We aim to ensure that children engender a sense of wonder and zest for lifelong learning and through the teaching of British Values, spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life as informed citizens.
To support the implementation of the curriculum there are opportunities to engage with the community, educational visits, visitors and a wide range of extra-curricular activities to provide broad and rich learning experiences.
We recognise that each child is unique. We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all children; irrespective of race, gender, disability, religion and belief, Special Educational Need or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and can participate fully in school life. Children’s progress is carefully monitored through the tracking of assessment and where appropriate, identified children have access to a range of interventions and pastoral support.
Sex and relationship education is taught in line with the Sex and Relationships Education Policy agreed by the Board of Trustees. Religious Education follows the locally agreed syllabus.
