Boundary Oak School Aim
To value and treat each pupil as an individual within a family community and to support differing needs whilst fostering an enjoyment of learning and promoting a growth mindset.
There are four underlying strands to our Curriculum that we aim to promote and develop:
- A Growth Mindset: This is embedded in our classroom practise and in our Baccalaureate
- Philosophy: From the P4C (philosophy for children) in the Ask It strand of Open Futures, through questioning and fertile questions in our schemes of work, to the explicit teaching of philosophy in our Humanities curriculum in Prep.
- Outdoor Learning: All pupils benefit from our Outdoor Learning Programme throughout their time at school.
- Digital skills: Through our computer science curriculum which covers coding, animations, film and sound editing, website and app building as well as 3D printing. Pupils also have the chance and freedom to explore and enhance their digital skills through a host of clubs. We have already been recognised nationally by being shortlisted in the ICT Innovation Award at the 2015 National Education Business Awards.
