Our Curriculum Intent 

We are enthusiastic about being curious, life-long, ambitious learners at our school. We provide a broad, rich, relevant and meaningful curriculum which, as a team, we are very proud to continue to enhance to meet the needs of the children in our context. Children have a thirst for learning at Burley Oaks and we are committed to nurturing young: writers, performers, readers, international speakers, mathematicians, scientists, historians, geographers, artists, designers, musicians, sports persons and computer users. Children here are actively encouraged to follow their passions whilst becoming holistic learners, well-equipped to reach their full potential.

A large part of children's learning happens through the theme-led curriculum at Burley Oaks.
