As a school community, we believe our children possess unique qualities and talents; as such they have the right to succeed, recognise their own potential, and develop who they are, in a nurturing and caring environment.
Oxley Primary school is a warm and caring community where diversity and equality are embraced and children love to learn. We enjoy challenges that will equip us for the future. We pursue excellence through an engaging and broad curriculum that engages and motivates our children to achieve their full potential and develop a passion for learning.
Oxley’s curriculum offers both breadth and depth. It is co-designed by teachers and children, using wherever possible, an enquiry-based approach that enables children to have opportunities for independent learning, and for teachers to facilitate this approach to learning.
We want our children to engage in a love of learning so that they can make the most of the opportunities the world has to offer them in their future lives. Our values underpin all that we do in school, fostering independence, resilience, and high expectations of ourselves.
We set high expectations in speech, language, and communication from day one in our early years setting. Our children need to develop a wide vocabulary to enable them to articulate their thinking, and emotions and express themselves effectively. Our focus on breadth and depth runs like a thread through our entire curriculum – ensuring children can effectively articulate their learning. It is designed to strengthen the children’s ability to learn at a deeper level and adopt transferable skills – allowing them to reflect on their learning, demonstrate quality thinking, and apply these skills and knowledge across different contexts.
Physical and mental well-being is a priority within our curriculum – which is even more important in light of recent events around the world. Our focus on well-being gives our children the opportunity to develop, refine and exhibit spiritual, moral, social, and cultural understanding.
