Aims and Principles

At Oughtibridge Primary School we aim to provide a curriculum to develop inquisitive, independent thinkers with a love of learning. We understand that the curriculum, both within taught lessons and beyond them, should create an environment where questioning, academic risk-taking, divergent thinking and the freedom to learn from mistakes are all encouraged.

The curriculum should be seen in its widest sense as the entire planned learning experience. This includes formal lessons as well as events, routines, and learning that take place outside the classroom. It should be seen within the overall aims and ethos of the School, which are at the core of its objectives.

Our curriculum is designed to allow each student to:

  • achieve the best possible academic qualifications and standards, whatever their ability
  • ensure high levels of engagement, enjoyment and personal development

Our curriculum is based around four key values, our ‘AIMS’ – Aspiration, Inspiration, Motivation and Success.  Through these values, we ensure key skills for life are taught every day.
