We know that today’s young people need to leave our Academy equipped with the knowledge and skills, resilience and perspective to respond to the challenges of life in the 21st century.
At Oasis Academy Mayfield we offer a curriculum that will develop confident, independent, lifelong learners and enable every student to achieve their personal best. We believe that all of our students are capable of experiencing remarkable success given the right conditions to succeed. We expect every student to make good or better progress throughout their time with us regardless of their individual challenges or their starting point. Our staff work hard to make sure each and every one of our young people have the opportunity and resources at their fingertips to reach their potential.
There are three key principles underpinning the design of the Academy’s curriculum:
- All students have access to a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum that supports learning
- A strong core ensures that basic skills such as literacy and numeracy are embedded at an early stage so that students are able to access the wider curriculum
- A range of learning pathways is on offer to support and challenge all students thus enabling them to open any door they wish to in the future
The curriculum encourages a thirst for knowledge and understanding and a love of learning. It covers a range of subjects and provides opportunities for academic, technical and sporting excellence. It contributes well to students’ academic achievement, their physical well-being and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It promotes good behaviour and a good understanding of safety matters. Alongside the taught PSHE curriculum, extra-curricular activities, pastoral support, assemblies and themed events deliver SMSC. These support the delivery of the Academy values, as well as promoting awareness of self and others and to promote British values of respect, tolerance, equality and fairness.
