STEAM in action

Our STEAM curriculum has been specifically written and deliberately designed to best serve children living in Oxfordshire.  We follow The National Curriculum and deliver it through a Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics lens. The STEAM curriculum is a vehicle to encourage children to aspire to work in the high technology industries within Oxfordshire and to develop a love of learning.  

Each term a different element of STEAM is launched to the entire school and classes are set a challenge. Celebration events happen where STEAM work is showcased to parents and the local community in our termly ‘STEAM Showcase Event’.

The purpose of the curriculum is to actualise the school’s vision: to empower children to become a successful citizen. Children need to be able to identify what is means to excel and become knowledgeable in a discipline i.e. ‘an expert’. Our ambition is for children to understand what it means to think, read, write and speak like an historian, a geographer, an artist, a scientist etc. 

Here are some examples of our innovative curriculum in action
