Our Curriculum

We believe in developing a well-educated child and provide opportunities in all year groups to ensure that children are school-ready, work-ready and life-ready. We provide a challenging, language rich, investigative 21st century skills and knowledge based curriculum. It captures the imagination of our children, stimulates their natural curiosity and creates a love of learning that is lifelong. Engaging learning challenges develop key knowledge and skills linked to the National Curriculum. Visits, visitors and hooks for learning provide a variety of first hand experiences.

All our children are actively involved in learning that goes beyond the classroom. Forest School, outdoor learning, sport, the arts and The Oldham Pledge Passport empowers our children to take risks, be respectful and responsible, develop empathy, make informed choices and importantly develop healthy bodies and minds.

In Y4 all children are taught to play the ukulele specialist. In Y3 children a receive a 30 minute swimming lesson each week. We also timetable RE and PSHE each week giving them equal status to other ‘foundation’ subjects. PE is taught by classteachers, a sports coach and dance specialists; All children receive two, 45 minute sessions per week and undertake a 15 minute daily additional active session.
