Connected Curriculum Approach

At St Oswald's, alongside our core English and Maths basic skills, we teach through a thematic, topic based approach focusing on transferrable key skills. This ensures that our children are able to apply their knowledge and draw meaningful links between different areas of the curriculum. We involve our children in planning and choosing exciting topics that will ensure they are fully engaged in their own learning. 

Our strong commitment to educational visits, extra curricular activities and enrichment opportunities reflects our belief that these ‘first hand experiences’ make learning more memorable, ensuring that the children enjoy a stimulating, creative and exciting curriculum.

The school is organised into 5 classes:  EYFS, Infants, Lower Junior and Upper Juniors. Our teaching is focussed on the needs of the individual child;  we tailor our teaching to ensure every child makes excellent progress.

This year, we have worked hard to make sure that our curriculum shows a progression of skills and knowledge in every subject. We have worked hard to put together a new 2year rolling programme that fits with our Pathways to Write scheme. Each half term, children will be exploring a different topic which is primarily Geography or History based. All objectives are taken from the National Curriculum and lessons are made to be accessible to all children. For each topic, there is a mindmap showing the coverage of the topic alongside a knowledge organiser. The knowledge organiser includes the vocabularly and sticky knowledge that all children should know by the end of the topic:

We are committed to providing specialist teaching where this benefits the children. We employ specialist music and PE teachers  and also  provide swimming tuition seasonally. We also welcome parents and friends of St Oswald's in school to support our activities.
