South Ossett Infants’ Academy Curriculum – Key Stage One

The Foundation Stage learning is built upon as the children continue their learning journey in Key Stage One. The National Curriculum provides the backbone of our in school curriculum; we add to this from other sources to meet the needs of our children. Our Key Stage One curriculum covers the following areas, though these are rarely taught in isolation as there are many connections in the children’s learning. As in the Foundation Stage, we strive to offer a broad range of contexts for this learning. Within the school setting we use the indoor and outdoor spaces effectively. We are an “Open Futures” school and so enjoy gardening, cooking and philosophy for children. Where possible we also learn through visits and through visitors coming in to school. Our aim is a broad and balanced curriculum, emphasizing the very important English and mathematical skills combined with all the other elements to provide everything needed for a well-rounded education.
