Article 29: Goals of education - Education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child's respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting School Award puts children's rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
We aim to be a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents and nurtured and they are able to thrive.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life at Oscott Manor School and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
Oscott Manor School currently has 11 classes across the three key Stages: KS3, KS4 and KS5. Pupils are grouped according to their ability and educational needs rather than in year groups (stage not age). There are four Learning Pathways that run across the three Key Stages:
Pathway 1: - Working towards formal accreditations including: GCSE’s and BTEC qualifications.
Pathway 2: - Working towards Entry Level Certificates and Functional Skills.
Pathway 3: - Working towards Entry level Certificates and ASDAN Short Courses.
Pathway 4: - Working towards ASDAN Personal Progress.
We recognise that our pupils need a bespoke curriculum and may need to move between pathways if their ability levels vary from subject to subject. Both academic and social/emotional progress are considered when placing pupils onto the correct Learning Pathways, as well as their preferred assessment style.
Our goal is to develop and further embed the school provision which promotes challenging and realistic opportunities, to develop the quality of teaching and learning to inspire all pupils to achieve and to ensure the school provides a supportive and stimulating environment to enable all pupils to achieve success.
