The Oldbury Aspiration – KASE@Oldbury

This is our ‘Oldbury Aspiration’. This poster is all around our school and shows everyone what we want for our Oldbury pupils in their time at our school. This is our way of taking the CRSAAT’s ‘KASE’ model (below the poster) and making it unique to our school:


KASE: This covers the following RSA agreed approaches to learning –


Our pupils are all entitled to:

  • Know, understand and have mastered the key concepts and questions related to, and arising from, each subject discipline (Expert)
  • Locate their experiences within a broader sense of society and understand the purpose and relevance of subject disciplines (Purposeful)
  • Opportunities for dialogue within subjects to build and use subject specific vocabulary (Fluent)
  • Know and understand their own learning journey with opportunities to explore progress and shape that journey (Self-Regulating)
  • Know, understand and contribute to the assessment process (Self-Directing)
