At St Oswald’s C.E. Primary we aim to provide a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn. Through the core values of hope, honesty, perseverance, respect, friendship and forgiveness we have provided a curriculum which enriches their lives, ensuring every child reaches their full potential.
At St Oswald’s we recognise the importance of English and Maths teaching in order to ‘open doors’ to other aspects of the curriculum; ensuring that the basic skills and foundations are taught.
The planning of the curriculum is based around a rolling programme using Cornerstones. Planning takes the form of a cross curricula approach and often teachers make links to English. Our Policy which sets out our Curriculum Intent, the Implementation and how we measure Impact can be found here.Curriculum policy 2019
