Our curriculum has been designed to ensure our young people thrive, achieve and flourish. It enables them to understand what it is to be human and equips them for life so that they become kind and model citizens. Our curriculum not only develops our young people academically but socially, emotionally, culturally, physically and spiritually.
Whilst our knowledge-rich curriculum is designed to ensure the very best academic outcomes for our young people using the latest research in how the brain and memory works, it is about so much more than simply securing great results. It is about our academy’s determination to achieve excellence with equity and integrity: where we bring advantage to the disadvantaged, where barriers to learning are successfully overcome and there are no limits to the achievement and ambition of our most able.
At Oasis Academy Clarksfield this will mean that all children, whatever their background, starting point and life experience, develop a strong grasp of the key learning skills, attitudes and knowledge they need to make an excellent start to secondary education. This will be delivered through the crafted experiences of a stimulating, broad and balanced context-based curriculum that is not restricted to just skills and knowledge for Reading, Writing and Maths.
Lessons across the curriculum are delivered using the ‘Learn it, Show it, Know It’ approach as described below:

‘Has it stuck?’ quizzes are used to assess whether children have remembered key knowledge and vocabulary. These are done at appropriate points in the year, after specific topics have been taught, so what children have really learnt and retained can be assessed. Pupils will be active participants of the monitoring of their learning and become co-constructors of their curriculum.
At Oasis Academy Clarksfield, we believe everyone is on their own learning journey and we hope our broad and balanced curriculum allows for every children to:
- learn new knowledge and skills that will equip them for a life time of learning
- develop a growth mindset which allows them to grasp new opportunities and raise their aspirations
- identify and develop their interests and talents
- fully achieve their god given potential
