This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. There are also sections on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development, British Values and International Learning.
The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. This includes an ever growing range of ‘Extra Curricular’ opportunities available to our children across all year groups. The school provides an excellent range of After School Clubs allowing all children to develop diverse and exciting skills. We offer a range of after school activities, please view our After School Clubs section for further details.
Ox Close Primary School aims to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others whilst developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve all that they can.
Across the school there are high expectations of behaviour and tolerance towards others. Ox Close Primary School was awarded ‘Outstanding’ for the behaviour and safety of pupils from Ofsted in January 2014. Please view our School Performance section to view our latest Ofsted report.
Ox Close Primary School aims to maximise social and academic potential for every pupil. From September 2014 the school will follow the New National Curriculum. Please view our Long Term Plans by selecting the Curriculum Plans link below.
If you have any questions about our curriculum or the work we do in school, please speak to your child’s class teacher or alternatively, please contact the school and speak to our Head Teacher, Mr Harrison, who will be happy to help.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs. At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum Ox Close Primary School remains committed to:
- A range of teaching and learning styles
- Differentiated learning materials
- Access to ICT and technology
- Additional in class support
- Additional out of class support
- Targeted interventions
- Flexible groupings – including small group support work
- Innovative and supportive curriculum
- The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions
- A broad range of extra-curriculuar activities, including booster sessions, homework club and fundamental movement skills
- Assessment procedures that emphasise pupils’ strengths and achievements
- Applications during national testing at Key Stage 2 to obtain access arrangements as appropriate
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
