Our Curriculum is more than just learning...

Helping all our children fulfil their potential in every way is at the heart of our comprehensive and innovative education programme.

We are proud to deliver creative and stimulating learning, which engages children of all backgrounds and abilities.
As a school, we are making significant improvements and are well on our way to becoming outstanding.
Our success is based on an equal partnership between children, parents and the school.
Learning at Oak View is broad and balanced and fulfils all National Curriculum requirements.
Teaching is structured to allow for as many creative opportunities as possible.
Children regularly enjoy curriculum-related days out, are taught phonics and reading on a daily basis, and undertake key-skills sessions to practice mental maths, handwriting and spelling.

We pride ourselves on developing the values of Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non-Violence within all our children. This ethos underpins our British values at Oak View.

We are focusing our energies into helping children understand how to become effective learners in 2018-19 so that they can further improve.

Curriculum and Ethos

Staff have identified the key skills our children should be taught. Alongside the EYFS curriculum, these form an important part of our focus within Acorn Pre-school and Juniper class (Reception).

Learning takes place in single year classes and children are encouraged to work in partnership with their teacher.
In addition to building pupils’ academic knowledge, we focus on a wide range of practical skills, which enable them to become skilled independent learners.
We are enthusiastic about being part of the Maths Hub Working Group, which aims to raise standards in maths by using Mastery teaching methods.

Each term we publish a curriculum outline which explains what each class will be covering, and gives information on homework tasks.
Should you have any questions about what your child is learning please contact his or her teacher. Further details are on the homepage of each class.
