Our Curriculum Rationale
We believe that children have the right to learn the necessary knowledge and skills to become life-long learners. At Oxford Road Community School, we are all learners together, using skills to acquire new knowledge and deepen our understanding of the complex world around us.
Through a rich and creative approach to the national curriculum, key texts that have been carefully curated, we use blooms taxonomy to deepen understanding and encourage mastery. We have a responsibility to ensure that children in our school develop the essential knowledge and skills through an interconnected webs of concepts that can be applied to all aspects of life in, and beyond, the primary classroom.
Our aim is simple, to enable children to become life-long learners who respect British values, are internationally and culturally minded and who have an acute awareness of themselves, their community and the ever changing world around them.
We are currently re-developing our school curriculum. Visit the class pages to find out about new topics, linked texts and examples of learning from each year group. We are working hard to ensure that our curriculum is current, exciting and enriching for our children and the community in which they live.
