Our School Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed so everyone has access to the National Curriculum programme of study and to develop a strong understanding of our place and community: past and present. 

Due the organisation of our school the curriculum is sequenced into a two-year cycle in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, a 3-year cycle in Years 3, 4 and 5 and a standalone Year 6 plan. 

Some pupils may need the curriculum to be adapted in order to access the curriculum, guidance for this is taken from their support plans and EHCPs.   Please visit the SEND section of our website to see how we achieve this here at St Oswald’s.

Phonics Information – At St Oswald’s we use a phonics programme called Sounds-Write. Further information can be found by clicking here.

Reading Scheme Information – Our main reading schemes for Reception and Year 1 are Sounds-Write and Dandelion. These books are fully aligned to our phonics teaching. As children become more confident and capable readers, they choose books from a range of reading schemes such as Collins Big Cat and Pearsons Bug Club before moving on to be free readers able to select books from our class libraries.
