The Oasis Curriculum
At Oasis we strive to achieve exceptional education at the heart of the communities we work in; using cutting edge educational research into the science of learning (including memory and character development) we aspire to develop active citizens and lifelong learners who have a strong understanding of the world around them and a desire to drive positive impact locally, nationally and globally.
We're really pleased to share with you the Curriculum Statement of Intent. This is a core document, outlining these aspirations for both primary and secondary aged children, and what we are doing to get them there.

We want our children and young people to:
- Be inspired to improve the world around them.
- Have the ambition, skills and expertise to thrive in a fast changing, interconnected and communication rich world, with the confidence and technical expertise to thrive.
- Have a network that supports them.
- Be comfortable in who they are and able to continuously explore who they are becoming.
- Be rich in language with a passion for learning.
- Seek to include others, be other-centred and celebrate difference.
- Have a values approach to life and a sense of what is right and wrong through the lived experience of the 9 habits.
The EYFS Curriculum is divided into seven areas of learning and development:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
There are 4 principles which underpin our Foundation Stage curriculum:
- A unique child - every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
- Positive relationships - so that children can feel safe and cared for.
- Enabling environments - we provide a rich and varied environment which supports children's learning and development. It gives them the confidence to explore and learn in a secure and safe yet challenging, indoor and outdoor space.
- Learning and development - Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. In their play, children learn at their highest levels. We provide wide ranging and varied activities that engage and involve the children for sustained periods.
From Year 1, the academy’s curriculum is planned to include all aspects of the ten subjects outlined in the National Curriculum. These are: Maths, English, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, ICT, Art, Music and Physical Education.
