Curriculum at Oakworth
At Oakworth we have a rigorous, broad and balanced curriculum. We recognise the importance of providing children with the opportunity to explore a range of subjects in depth which will inspire and prepare them for learning beyond our school. Oakworth follows the National Curriculum however we believe in using a child centered approach to learning as children are at the heart of our school. This provides children the opportunity to take risks, learn from trial and error and become more resilient learners. At Oakworth we have designed a curriculum that has clear progression in each subject across school and ensures children are able to continuously build on the skills previously taught. Staff carefully piece together units to ensure children are taken on a meaningful journey in their learning through the topic, finishing with an innovative project outcome. Oakworth’s creative curriculum is ‘hands on’ and children are encouraged to discuss their ideas, thoughts and feelings with others. This then continuously develops children’s confidence, creativity and team work which will not only support them in other subjects within our school but in preparation for the next stage of their education.
