Our curriculum aims to provide opportunities for all of our children to learn, achieve and make progress and to reach their highest possible attainment. We also aim to develop enjoyment, creativity, imagination and equality through our curriculum.
It is aimed to develop our children’s ability to work independently, collaboratively and to be able to utilise the essential learning skills of literacy, numeracy and information communications technology. It is also aimed at developing physical, health, personal, social and citizenship dimensions, whilst promoting spiritual, moral and cultural development and preparing all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. We also ensure an entitlement to our curriculum for all children irrespective of social background, culture race, gender, differences in ability and disability.
The school works within the requirements of the National Curriculum, the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and Lancashire Guidelines. These documents are kept in school and parents are welcome to read them if they wish. The school teaches English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Design Technology, Computing, Music, Physical Education, Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and Religious Education to all age groups and the teachers aim to offer a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. Children are taught as a whole class, in groups of varying sizes and as individuals according to their needs and the subject being taught. Groups are formed to suit different purposes and activities.
The teachers work within whole school policy guidelines. These are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are incorporating the current National Curriculum programmes of study and meet new expectations. The Headteacher and the Class Teachers are always willing to explain the curriculum on a whole school basis or as it currently affects your child.
Broad Oak aims to provide your child with a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by core British values.
