Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Curriculum Maps

At Oasis Woodview, we teach a unique Curriculum of Investment - this means teachers plan integrated Topic-style units based on real-life learning experiences.  There is a 'narrative thread' running through each Unit to ensure our Curriculum surpasses simple engagement, and is brought to life so children feel immersed and invested in their learning. 

In line with the Oasis' Education Charter, the curriculum is the heart of our academy's educational provision. Through this -and our commitment to an exceptional climate for learning and great pedagogy -we make learning the foundation of every lesson. We have designed our curriculum to meet the needs of all, striving for personal as well as academic and vocational excellence. Through our curriculum we will achieve outcomes that drive social mobility and give everyone freedom of choice throughout their lives.

The Oasis ethos and 9 Habits are a foundation stone to the design and delivery of our curriculum. We know that the development of character doesn't happen by chance but by purpose and intention: it is therefore an explicit part of our curriculum. We therefore work hard at preparing our students to be the best version of themselves not just for today but for their futures too. We provide our students with a range of experiences and open their eyes to the world around them encouraging them to be aspirational and ambitious so that they can be successful in their next phase of education and ultimately make a positive contribution to society.

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure our young people thrive, achieve and flourish. It enables them to understand what it is to be human and equips them for life so that they become kind and model citizens. Our curriculum not only develops our young people academically but socially, emotionally, culturally, physically and spiritually.

Whilst our knowledge-rich 'curriculum is designed to ensure the very best academic outcomes for our young people using the latest research in how the brain and memory works, it is about so much more than simply securing great results. It is about our academy's determination to achieve excellence with equity and integrity: where we bring advantage to the disadvantaged, where barriers to learning are successfully overcome and there are no limits to the achievement and ambition of our most able.

In our academy this will mean that all children, whatever their background, starting point and life experience, develop a strong grasp of the key learning skills, attitudes and knowledge they need to make an excellent start to secondary education. This will be delivered through the crafted experiences of a stimulating, broad and balanced context-based curriculum that is not restricted to just skills and knowledge for Reading, Writing and Maths.

The curriculum has been carefully designed with reading is at the heart.  High quality texts support and inspire a love of learning.  A broad and balanced curriculum is delivered which takes into account the diversity, interests, context and experiences of our pupils. Our bespoke curriculum provides clear, well thought out progression and meets the needs of our pupils taking account of their experiences, diverse backgrounds and heritage.

British values are promoted across the curriculum and collective worship.  This is encompassed in the academy’s ethos and promotion of the Oasis 9 Habits.

Through clear SMSC teaching, which is embedded in the curriculum, pupils and staff work together to prevent discriminatory behaviour. Our work towards the UNICEF Rights Respecting School award reinforces this.

In Early Years Foundation Stage we will provide a curriculum based on planned, purposeful play and the development of physical dexterity, language skills and social awareness. The curriculum will provide opportunities for these children to learn to read and write, develop skills in maths, find out about the world around them and develop an understanding of art and design. 

-We make the teaching of reading, including phonics the "core purpose" of the reception year

-We attach great importance to the teaching of numbers in building children's fluency in counting, recognising small numbers of items, comparing numbers in solving problems

-We ensure that when children are learning to write, resources are suitable for their stage of development and that they are taught correct pencil grip and how to sit correctly at a table

-We devote sufficient time each day to the direct teaching of reading, writing and mathematics, including frequent opportunities for children to practise and consolidate their skills during cross curricular topic work.

-We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile as a guide to end of reception expectations rather than to define what should be taught.

Our knowledge-rich curriculum and our commitment to the Oasis ethos and Nine Habits is supported by our Trust's policies on Learning and Behaviour for Learning and the work of our National Lead Practitioners and Leads for Learning Innovation.

Our commitment to providing students with a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities will add depth and breadth to our provision and allow our students to follow their hobbies and interests outside of the formal curriculum.
