Oakley Infant School Curriculum
We want the children at Oakley to experience an inspiring, challenging and motivating curriculum where all children are encouraged to challenge themselves. Through an ambitious curriculum we want the children to develop independence and resilience through their learning across all areas of the National Curriculum and beyond.
Through the interesting curriculum we have developed at Oakley, we want children to achieve the highest standards of attainment taking into account and being sensitive to children’s differing needs, enabling all children to have equal access to a knowledge rich curriculum. The curriculum is sequenced carefully to safeguard children’s learning development.
The learning is enriched through the use of the school grounds, visitors, high quality resources and learning contexts and visits outside of school to support and inspire children’s learning. Themed days and focus weeks provide access to the curriculum in a dynamic and engaging way. The curriculum is underpinned by the work on the Convention of Children’s Rights.
We take pride in the nurturing environment developed and provided by the skilled members of staff to motivate and support all children to achieve their very best and ensure children are well equipped to continue their learning journey beyond Oakley Infant School.
Reading is taught using a variety of reading schemes, including phonic based schemes such as Oxford Reading tree, Collins Big Cat, Project X and many others, to give access to a wide range of vocabulary. All children also have access to 'Bug Club', an online reading scheme, which is personalised for each child to link with their phonics knowledge. Phonics is taught using the Letters and Sounds scheme across the school through whole class teaching, differentiated groups and small group and 1:1 support where necessary.
