Curriculum

The school is affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE Board. [ CBSE Affiliation N0. 1131170, CBSE Code: 31157]

Oxford World School provides high quality education wherein the focus is on building thinking and problem solving skills which will ensure lifelong learning. These wide ranges of learning skills are essential for the students to tackle the challenges of our dynamic, rapidly growing world and transform them into “better selves”— mindful, empathetic, critical-thinking, creative, and collaborative beings. Our teachers are “Facilitators” who guide students in their learning by providing them with hands on experiences that not only generate interest, but also fosters creativity. Thinking out of the box is encouraged and it motivates students to approach situations and problems from different perspectives. This, in turn, develops in them a thirst for knowledge and the skill of self-learning. OWS facilitators have the ability to teach breadth of skills—shifting from a narrow focus on literacy and numeracy—which is an important step toward preparing students to tackle 21st century challenges.

Co-curricular activities (CCAs) earlier known as Extracurricular Activities (ECA) are the components of non-academic curriculum helps to develop various facets of the personality development of the child and students. The co-curricular activity schedule is also mentioned in the student Almanac. Most of the activities allow maximum students to participate. These activities encompass a wide range of skills and parents are expected to train the students for these activities. Certificates are issued to the students. Co-curricular activities are meant to bring social skills, intellectual skills, moral values, personality progress and character appeal in students. It includes athletics, cultural events, Library activities, science lab activities, classroom activities, creative arts and meditation etc.

We do not believe in burdening the child yet some amount of practice work is assigned in 2-3 subjects everyday which a child himself/herself can attempt. Learning at Oxford World School will be a joyful and stress free experience. A well planned homework schedule and an ongoing assessment routine, ensures that children learn for the love of learning and not just to score marks and grades. School isn’t the only place for learning activities. When your child is at home, you’re their teacher. But everything doesn’t have to feel like a classroom lesson. Get them excited about discovering something new when you disguise the learning activities as fun time.

The Primary School recognizes the link between development and learning. The Experiential inquiry-based curriculum focuses on the child as a learner. The CCE pattern of assessment introduced takes the students through a journey of activity / Experiential -based learning.

The following teaching pedagogies are effectively implemented by the educators to ensure effective teaching & learning among the learners.

  • Experiential Learning 
  • Art-Integrated Learning
  • Inter-Disciplinary Approach
  • Activity -Based and Joyful Learning
  • Integrating Life Skills

 

The curriculum is ingeniously designed to enhance creativity, collaboration, communication skills and team ethics. Our subjects don’t exist in isolation, nor does our learning. Field- trips, excursions, movies, workshops, projects, meeting authors and experts from different fields constitute our academic framework. We adopt a constructive approach and pedagogy with project based learning and hands-on experience as its areas of prime focus. Integrated, collaborative and interactive approach helps the students to apply their knowledge in real-life situations and contribute to their holistic development. The students learn to critically evaluate, analyze and express themselves. The overall environment is conducive to fostering Academic Excellence and Creative Brilliance. For more details, you could go through the Curriculum section on our website which gives a comprehensive insight into the curriculum and pedagogy.
