Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

At Oatlands, our curriculum is rich, inclusive and innovative. Learning extends beyond the classroom through our outdoor environment and extra-curricular opportunities, involving pupils, parents and the local community. Our children are immersed into interesting and fun topics, that develop lively, enquiring minds as they gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding.  Our curriculum encourages children to imagine and create, to make links through well-connected knowledge and celebrates diversity. They learn how to keep themselves safe and interact with the digital world as independent and enterprising learners.

 

From ‘Our World of Learning’ we want all our children to go out into the world as responsible, confident citizens in a global community, making a positive contribution as life-long learners.

 

At Oatlands Junior School we provide a broad, creative and balanced curriculum, which inspires children to develop a lifelong love of learning and prepares them for life in modern Britain.
Our Curriculum both inside and outside the classroom actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
We aim to develop enquiring and lively minds as well as the knowledge and skills to enable children to thrive in an ever changing world. We have high expectations of all children and challenge individuals so that they can go on to achieve their full potential.
English and mathematics are core skills which children need to develop in order to progress further in other subject areas. These are taught in discrete lessons with cross-curricular links where appropriate to enable children to apply lifelong skills in a variety of scenarios. In Years 5 and 6 children are in smaller class sizes for English and mathematics, which allows teachers to tailor provision for all abilities and provide experience of lessons with different staff in preparation for transition to secondary school.
