At Oakhill, we deliver the National Curriculum through our ALUMNO curriculum which is underpinned by our six school values - ambition, confidence, empathy, independence, resilience and respect. Ofsted descrived our curriculum as 'Well structured and well sequenced" and praised the high quality teaching across the school - Ofsted October 2023.


Curriculum Rationale

At Oakhill, we intend to provide children with a broad and balanced curriculum which has been ambitiously designed to suit the needs of our children. We intend to raise aspirations and to promote independence, resilience and confidence. We do this by exposing children to a wide variety of experiences in order for them to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for the next phase of their education. Most importantly we develop inquisitiveness and a love of learning!



Through the implementation of our curriculum, we intend for our learners:

  • To read and communicate ideas effectively and efficiently orally and in writing;
  • To use technologies confidently and purposefully;
  • To work independently and collaboratively;
  • To show commitment, inquisitiveness and perseverance;
  • To ask and answer their own questions and those of others;
  • To generate ideas and explore possibilities;
  • To overcome barriers.
  • To know and remember more.


We intend for our learners to develop a love of learning; to become learners for life by equipping them with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary for the next phase of their education, instilling in them a desire to learn.



We believe that children learn best when they are intrigued and interested: challenged and stimulated. We intend to do this by providing opportunities across the curriculum to read, to be creative, to explore, to investigate, to question and to discuss. Pedagogical approaches are chosen carefully to ensure the best approach to enabling all children to achieve the intended lesson outcome.
