Our Curriculum Intention

At Charlbury School we believe that inspired teaching and leadership is the bedrock to help motivate and develop children to reach their full potential. Through our care, respect for each other and sense of belonging, we encourage excellence, valuing uniqueness in all children in our community. We provide a broad and exciting curriculum and our team are committed to developing the whole child in becoming a happy, balanced and responsible citizen now and in the future. 

Aspirational - Ethical - Creative - Curious


What is out curriculum?

Our curriculum is based on the ambitious National Curriculum. It has been constructed to provide children with a number of opportunities to review their learning so that key knowledge from the National Curriculum is retained in children’s long term memory. Our teaching & learning policy is based strongly around Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction which places a significant emphasis on daily, weekly and monthly reviewing. When planning each unit, staff take notice of children’s existing knowledge. This comes from low stakes assessments that can be completed by the children before, during and/or after the unit of work.

We have high aspirations for all of our learners no matter what their barriers to entry but acknowledge that children may require additional scaffolding for them to be able to achieve the success they are capable of.

Our long term curriculum map for 2022-23 is available here.

Mary Myatt reminds us that curriculum design should be an 'ongoing story of refinement.' Our Charlbury curriculum is reviewed every year and adapted accordingly.
