Our Curriculum

Each year group follows a curriculum which builds on the knowledge and skills from previous years and enables every child to fulfil their potential.  NB - Curriculum maps for each year group are currently under review and will be re-launched during half term 1.

Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. Work is planned jointly, in Year Teams with close liaison, communication and support from our teaching assistant team.

At Broad Oak we do not have a set scheme for reading but the books that the children read are Book Banded and the  pupils are regularly benchmaked using the Nelson Benchmarking kit.

Our phonics is based on THRASS, with some of the resources from Letters and Sounds being used where appropriate.

We follow the National Curriculum within Broad Oak and use the Cornerstones Curriculum to support this.

Topic within the school is based on the Cornerstones curriculum and a link to their website can be found here.
