Curriculum

2016 - 17 (January 2017 update)
 
Our Academy is a developing centre of excellence for outdoor learning. With vast, green spaces and our own Forest School, we provide a unique and vibrant learning environment.

Our comprehensive forest school programme and Jamie Oliver’s Kitchen Garden project provide ample opportunities for our children to learn through exploration of our world.

We have a dedicated sports coaching programme, which includes a full time sports coach who works with all children; swimming in Key Stage 2 and FREE specialist football coaching from FA Tesco’s Sports Skills Programme.

Every child within the Academy learns to use their voice to support their learning and also as an instrument by taking part in the Voices Foundation Project – a nationwide programme dedicated to improve children’s confidence in singing, performing and music.

The school funds places for all children in Year 4 to learn to play the violin.

Concerts, productions and assemblies throughout the year allow the children to develop their self-esteem and confidence beyond the classroom setting.

Throughout the year our children work with a range of local artists to develop their creativity. Our children take part in local and wider community projects such as Oxford Light Night and The Cowley Road Carnival.

All our children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn a Modern Foreign Language.
