Key Stage 1 Curriculum



Below are the long term plans for each term. These are based on the new National Curriculum introduced in September 2014 but are regularly evaluated and updated to meet the needs of our pupils.


Most of our foundation subjects are taught through a thematic approach and many have a strong emphasis on developing literacy skills. Some areas of the curriculum are taught in isolation.  At Broom Cottages, daily literacy lessons are taught using the Read, Write Inc. approach.  For more information, please click here.


The red boxes on each set of plans are our 'drivers'. These aspects of Learning have been chosen by the staff as areas that will help our young people to develop as individuals. The 'drivers' run through all aspects of planning.


The curriculum is delivered on a 2 year cycle.


 If you have any questions or comments relating to the curriculum please contact Mr Kavanagh, Headteacher.
