At Oxclose Nursery Community Nursery School, we value and respect the diversity of our local community and the wider world.  We have an inclusive approach to all aspects of our curriculum and we are committed to supporting the needs of children with SEND and additional barriers to learning.
Our curriculum is carefully designed, planned and organised to ensure breadth, balance and depth for each child. We recognise the needs of our community, and use this information to help us design a curriculum that takes account of children’s background, life and cultural experiences and prepares them for the next stage in their education.
We place priority on ensuring children’s physical needs are met and their emotional well-being is secure.  We do this by being flexible and responsive to children’s emerging needs. Staff help children to develop respect for each other, take responsibility for their actions and understand actions and words have consequences.
We have a total inclusion approach to all aspects of children’s learning and development.  We provide opportunities for children to experience the benefits of a multicultural society, developing tolerance and understanding in our learning community.
The timetable is carefully structured to provide high quality experiences and interactions through a mix of adult focussed and child initiated activities that support learning and development through indoor and outdoor environments.
We have structured our curriculum intent around four overarching principles that are key to children’s learning and development:
  • Positive relationships
  • Effective communicator
  • Healthy body and mind
  • Critical thinking
