Our intent at Charlton-on-Otmoor is to raise educational standards across all subjects enabling our pupils to achieve academic and personal success.
At the forefront of our curriculum are our three strategic aims:
Having high aspirations for every pupil
Developing pupils with the skills required for the 21st century
Enabling pupils to become global citizens
Our personalised, cohesive ‘Learning Means the World’ curriculum is innovative, forward-thinking and highly relevant – dealing with tomorrow’s issues today. It is devoted to providing pupils with a broad and deep level of learning, developing fully rounded individuals, fuelling creativity and resulting in positive change.
