The Oaks Primary School and Nursery Curriculum

Curriculum Rational

The holistic needs of all the children at The Oaks are at the heart of everything with do at our school. The children follow a broad and varied curriculum which is carefully balanced ensuring that the key life skills of Literacy and Mathematics are central along with the wider life skills and knowledge needed to ensure that our children are successful and well equipped for the next stage in their life. 

The wider curriculum at The Oaks is designed to help children problem solve, make links, know more and remember more. They will develop their metacognitive abilities for themselves by exploring, investigating and making sense of the world around them. The curriculum is organised so that all areas are being taught at least on a fortnightly basis. Across the school subject areas are also explored at every level possible –personal, class, school, community, society. To help the children make links and see the bigger picture.

We are constantly working on our curriculum, adapting and improving, to ensure the best possible outcomes for all our children. All the documents below are a continual work in progress and will be updated when new developments have been completed.
