We know that today’s young people need to leave our Academy equipped with the knowledge and skills, resilience and perspective to respond to the challenges of life in the 21st century.
Our curriculum, or planned activities to develop growth and learning as well as enriching beyond the classroom, includes a rich experience where students will study both national curriculum ‘traditional’ subjects along with a discreet curriculum that develops the attitudes and values that we expect from everybody within the Academy.
The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of our students and prepare them for their future education and careers. It provides both challenge and support and is fully inclusive to meet the needs of all the students. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for jobs that aren’t even invented yet. Therefore it is progressive and will constantly adapt to ensure that students are best equipped for the future.
We have exceptionally high expectations of students and planning will be based on the prior attainment of students, along with their individual progress at various points throughout the year. Our curriculum will focus on engagement, challenge, support and a commitment to reflect the particular needs of our community at a local, national and global level.
There will be a strong focus on reading, writing and mathematics to ensure that students are able to access the curriculum fully. There will be support for students who have English as an additional language, along with a comprehensive programme of development and challenge for the most able readers, writers and mathematicians. We will also provide a strong transition programme for students to best prepare them academically, spiritually and socially for coming up to secondary school and becoming an Oasis Academy Leesbrook student. Our curriculum is founded on a belief that all students can achieve excellence. This will be embedded in every aspect of the planning and delivery and will form an important part of each students’ journey at Oasis Academy Leesbrook.
