At Oakwood we have a clear approach to our curriculum. In the Foundation Stage, our organisation is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. This is in line with the national expectations of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Please refer to our Foundation Stage Policy for more information.
In Year 2 and 6 we are continuing to work within the historic national curriculum levels in English and Maths; in all other subjects, we are implementing the new national curriculum.
In Years 1, 3, 4 and 5, children are working towards the key indicators outlined in the new curriculum, in all subjects.
At Oakwood we promote a cross curricular approach where teachers are encouraged to make links across the curriculum. We believe that first-hand experiences are key to supporting learning and promoting engagement. Please refer to our long-term plan for more details.
Our School is organised into three key stages.
The Foundation Stage – for 3-5 year olds – Nursery (Sunflowers) and Reception (Class 1 and Class 2)
Key Stage 1 – for 5 to 7 year olds – Year 1 and Year 2
Key Stage 2 – for 7 to 11 year olds – Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
If you have any queries regarding the curriculum for any of the key stages, please contact the Headteacher via the School Office.
