Teaching & Learning

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.

Key Stage 3

Transition into the school is an important part of Key Stage 3. We visit all of our new starters in their primary school setting before they join the school. This gives us the chance to meet them, greet them and speak to the school staff who know them best before they join the school. Each of our new starters will also have a home visit before they start so that transition staff can meet parents/carers and seek as much information as possible to make the transition successful. The Key Stage 3 curriculum offers a broad range of subjects and many practical opportunities for pupils to apply the knowledge they have learned.

Key Stage 4

The Key Stage 4 curriculum offers a wide range of accreditation routes in order that all of our pupils can gain recognised qualifications. Some pupils engage in off site learning opportunities to help them build confidence and employability skills.

Key Stage 5

At Key Stage 5, we are preparing pupils to be as independent as possible. Some of our pupils are travelling independently to school, some are accessing regular work placements and others are accessing opportunities within the community. The curriculum offer builds on knowledge and skills learned in Key Stage 4 and enables positive outcomes to all pupils.
